The curtain is about to close on the year 2017 so we are sure you and your barkada are more than excited to plan your next Batangas beach outing. Let’s admit- getting the whole gang together for a trip to Batangas beaches is much more difficult than booking your immediate family’s out-of-town travel.
It’s understandable especially if all of you are already working and fate seem to not be in your favor when it comes to agreeing on a schedule that everybody will be available. This is the reason one (don’t deny, there’s usually one person in the barkada willing to do all the planning just to make it happen) of you has already set up a Facebook group chat to talk about your annual Batangas summer barkada beach outing.
Now, come on, don’t put all the weight of planning to that one friend! Putting a beach trip in Batangas would feel much more fulfilling when done together. To make sure you have everything you need for a successful barkada beach outing, here are a few items to consider:
- Agreed schedule
Like we have mentioned beforehand, the very first thing you need to set straight is an agreed schedule. This is exactly why planning ahead has its advantages. If you start discussing about the date of your summer trip as early as November or December, you will have a better chance of actually coming to a schedule when everyone is available. Once you have that set, you are good to go to being looking for a resort.
- Resort reservation
The main reason it is advisable to plan your barkada’s summer beach outing ahead of time is because booking a resort too close to peak season will hurt your budget. However, if you reserve your slot months before your actual planned stay period, you get more bang for your buck. Not only that, you can be sure that you will have more options because believe us when we tell you that resorts get fully booked fast in the months nearing summer.
Okay, now that you have your when and where, the next thing for you to discuss is the how. More often than not, if someone from your barkada knows how to drive and has a car, he or she will be the designated driver. Yes, Eagle Point Beach and Diving Resort in Batangas may be close to the city but driving is no easy task especially if you do not have somebody else to take over the wheel when you get tired. But hey, you could always take the bus because it doesn’t really matter how you get there as long as you are together, right?
Last, but definitely not the least, is to come up with a reasonable budget. Everyone should chip in so make sure to go over the expenditures together. Take into consideration the resort rate, food and drinks, transportation, and other expenses like activities you might want to do or places within the vicinity that you might want to visit.
Bonus: Online Photo Album
This is more of a post beach outing tip but having a shared album online, whether it’s on Facebook or Google Drive, can eliminate the stress of reminding everybody to share all the photos they took during the trip.
Go on, better start planning your barkada summer beach outing as early as today so by peak season, you’re all set to go here at Eagle Point Beach and Diving Resort in Batangas. See you!
