If you love lazing and sunbathing on beaches it is a great idea to holiday in Boracay Island. The small island in Philippines is rated by many travel publications as one of the top destinations for relaxations. As the island is surrounded by over a dozen white sand beaches, it attracts tourists from various parts of the world during the dry season of November to April. The popular hotels in Boracay Island also ensure that guests are provided with everything they want. However, you must not forget some simple tips while sunbathing on the stunning white sand beaches.
- You must apply your sunscreen at least before 15 to 30 minutes before going out for sunbathing. Also, you need to choose the sunscreen that is effective in protecting your skin and body from both UV-A and UV-B rays. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends sunbathers to use sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Also, they must reapply the sunscreen every 2 hours or once they start sweating and profusely.
- Often palm trees can affect your sunbathing session adversely. So you need to identify the best part of the white beach to sunbathe. It is always a good idea to opt for a spot that is not covered by shady trees and other structures. Also, your choice of spot must remain exposed to the sun from various angles.
- While sunbathing, you are not required to start with any ideal position. You can start by laying down on your back while make your face facing the sun, or by keeping your face down. It is also advisable to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes during sunbathing. However, you must switch sides frequently to prevent your skin on one side from burning on. You must give a break to specific side of your skin from sun by changing sides every 30 minutes.
- During the sunbathing session, you can even take a break, and take a dip in the water to eliminate the effect of strong sun. However, you must not forget to reapply the sunscreen before continuing the session, if the sunscreen is not waterproof. Also, you must drink adequate water before the session to avoid dehydration caused by the sun.
You can always consider staying at a modern and comfortable beach boutique hotel like Villa Caemilla. The beach boutique hotel also includes one of the best beach clubs in the island. So you will love to laze on the soft sun beds with parasols, while being served with food and drinks by the attentive waiters.
