You go to the Batangas beaches for one thing and one thing only- the ocean. It doesn’t even matter if you know how to swim or not, when it’s summer, you just know you need your dose of vitamin Sea.
This is the very reason why more and more travelers are opting to pitch a tent than book an accommodation. In fact, even those who’ve already reserved a room still ask if they’re allowed to pitch a tent on the sand so they can be as close to the sea as possible. We really can’t blame you if you’re part of this crowd, after all, there’s no better way to get lulled into sleep than the sound of the waves crashing into the shore.
However, camping on the beach can be a daunting task especially if you find yourself unprepared. To help make your first experience a success, here are a few things to remember:
- Choose the right area of the beach.
Not all beach shores are as fine as the sands of Boracay but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy camping on it. Our advice, is to choose an area of the beach that’s not as rocky (so you’ll be comfortable sleeping without bumps sticking to your back) and that could give you the most privacy. Remember, the beach is a public place so it’s better to pitch a tent where you wouldn’t be disturbed by too many people talking or drinking.
- Know when and where to light a fire.
Camping is almost always never complete without a bonfire, but it’s not a beach activity recommended to do every time. We suggest asking the resort first it it’s allowed; if it is, make sure to create one that’s not too near the tents you just pitched because however unlikely you think it will happen, it’s still better to be safe than sorry. If you need to cook, we’re still more confident with you bringing a portable stove because it will leave no trash on the shores of Eagle Point Beach and Diving Resort.
- Keep everything inside.
Whether it’s your clothes, gadgets, or gears, leaving your things outside your tent can lead to quite disastrous results. You’re by the sea which means dew build up can happen fast. If you don’t want to go home wearing damp clothes, it’s best to keep your things inside the tent. If in any case you forget to do that and are faced with the unfortunate fate of damp clothes and bags, dry them first to avoid getting sick and molds on your stuff.
- Learn to layer clothes.
Yes, it’s summer so you the kinds of clothes you probably have ready on your backpack are those that will offer you the most ventilation- shorts, sleeveless tops, and loose shirts. But sleeping by the beach can be cold even in the hot season so it’s better if you pack along a sweater or cardigan along with pajamas and socks. The best way to be prepared for a chilly night in the beach? Blankets.
- Clean as you go.
This is a simple yet very important thing to remember if you’re planning to go camping on the beach. It’s sad to think that most beach campers tend to enjoy their time but forget about keeping the very shores they claim to love clean. If you’re pitching a tent on the sand, be sure that when you leave, our beach is as clean as the way you first saw it. Let’s all be partners in keeping Mother Nature healthy, okay?
There you go! We hope you find camping on the beach in Batangas especially at Sepoc Beach Center of Eagle Point Resort an enjoyable experience whether or not it’s for a few hours or an overnight stay. But if you’re going on a vacation for relaxation, then it’s best to book a room at our hotel here at Eagle Point Beach and Diving Resort in Batangas.
