Cebu Summer Checklist

For first-time tourists in Cebu, here’s what you need to know when visiting the beaches in the summer.

Drink a lot of water

  • Get hydrated all day! For those who are planning to get soaked in seawater or just plain sand, you need to bring a bottle of water with you so you would have something to drink when you feel thirsty. It is recommended that you bring your own tumbler of water especially during an island hopping when you’re just in the boat waiting to be transferred to another island.

Bring your sunblock

  • Take good care of your skin while under the sun by applying sunblock all over your face and body. It is important to note that the heat of the sun can be too much for your skin so better bring your sunblock if you don’t want to get any skin illness while enjoying the summer.

Bring or buy your umbrella

Bring and wear loose clothes

  • It’s less likely that you need jackets and thick kind of clothing because summer is summer here in Cebu. Even the nights can be as hot as the days! It is suggested that you wear loose clothes during your whole vacation because this will help you feel light.

Avoid large crowds

  • As much as possible, stay away from a large circle of people especially when under the sun or within a closed area. Find an open space where you can rest and always keep a safe distance.

Spend time in a cool place

  • Do this right after your body temperature lowers down. You will get sick for spending a lot of time under the heat then immediately enter an air-conditioned room. You can spend your time in malls and coffee shops at night if you want a more comfortable place after your whole day of exploring the beaches and islands.

Cebu is a good place to spend your summer. You won’t regret visiting this place because of what experiences it can offer.
