The Ultimate GOA Packing List! 5 Things You Must Carry
Goa is a destination you’d find on every traveller's bucket list. It’s that time of the year when the rain Gods turn Goa into a green paradise. However, the beachcation needs more planning than you think. Long hours in the outdoors sound like the ultimate getaway from mundane city life; however, you must carry a few essentials to avoid ruining your seaside holiday. Let’s jump right into this ultimate packing list for Goa where we’ve listed five must-haves for your much-awaited trip.
1. Mirrored sunglasses
Mirrored sunglasses not only enhance your Insta-moments, but they also protect your eyes from harsh UV rays, excessive light, and glare, better than regular sunglasses. The top mirror coating shoos away excessive light from entering your eyes, thereby keeping your eyes comfortable and protected.
This one is a no-brainer! However, don’t let the clouds make you ditch a high-SPF sunscreen. The ultraviolet rays penetrate through the clouds and are as harmful as on a regular sunny day. Secondly, reapplying sunscreen after an hour or two is as important as applying it 30-minutes before you head outdoors. Lastly, don’t settle for anything less than SPF 30. And this goes for men and women alike as the harmful effects of UV rays go beyond wrinkles and dark spots on the skin.

While stunning bikinis and shorts are must-haves for a beach holiday; so are sarongs and other loose, light wraps, shirts, and cover-ups that lend an added enigma and variety to your beachy wardrobe. These are easy to pack and a whole lot to grab. And since no beach holiday pictures are imagined without wide-brimmed hats, pack yours.
Your footwear can make or break your trip, especially when you’re planning a coastal vacation. Flip-flops and sandals are the best choices for touring by the seaside. For those indulging in water sports, aqua shoes with the full enclosure are recommended. Sneakers are a good choice for sightseeing, while party lovers must pack shoes that pair with smart casuals.
5. A Power bank
As much as you’d hate it, power cuts in Goa are frequent and long. Your mobile phone is a multitasker and serves as a camera and flashlight, enables e-payments, besides connecting you to the world. You must carry a power bank to keep its battery charged.
And to pack all your
essentials and more, you need a stylish and sturdy luggage set. Whether you
want to stash everything in one large trolley bag or you want to get a luggage set of two, Nasher
Miles has an unrivaled collection
of luggage sets that can make others envy your choice while enabling you to
pack everything you’ll need on your trip to GOA!
