Clothes and Protection:

  • Jacket for the domestic flights as it can get cold there
  • Sun lotion (please make sure it’s ocean safe)

  • Long sleeved light clothes (another precaution against Malaria in the evening)

  • Power plug adapter for non-European plugs

Diving Related:

  • Your dive gear, if you have any (especially bring your reef-hook, safety buoy and a whistle)
  • Spare parts for your dive gear, should you have any (e.g. spare mouth piece, mask strap, batteries)
  • Snorkelers: rash guard (we recommend that for sun protection)
  • Contact lenses to wear under you mask if you need them
  • Mask defog
  • A waterproof pouch or dry bag (something to put your camera in when you go on a trip)

Medicine, Food and Necessities:

  • For the ladies: tampons and a good, environmentally friendly conditioner for your hair (salt water can be nasty)
  • Any kind of necessities (deodorant, toothbrush etc.)
  • Medicine:
    • If there are pills that you need to take regularly, please bring enough stock for all the days of your stay
    • If you have any medicine allergies and you need to use special medications in case of sickness, bring these with you as well
    • Something against diarrhea, just in case
    • Seasickness medicine if you need it
  • Special food you might need (e.g. if you are on a diet)
  • Your favorite spirit from the duty-free shop (we have beer, wine and a limited amount of spirits at the resort)
  • If you bring your child: all necessities, special food and medicine for the child

Others:

  • Anything else you might specifically need or cannot live without (laptop, cuddle-teddy, liquorice…)
  • Binoculars for spotting birds
  • Some guests like to bring donations for our neighbor village Yenwaupnor (e.g. children’s clothes, pens, books, toys…). Do not feel obliged to that as we make regular donations to the village already. But some guests say, once they arrived here, that – had they known before – they would have liked to bring something along. That’s why we put that here.
