So, make sure to go for polarized sunglasses which will restrain sun reflection and keep your eyes stress-free. The intensity of sunlight reflected by the sand is too high and these sunglasses will help to protect your eyes from harsh rays of Sun. A good pair of sunglasses will protect your eyes from the harsh sunlight in Goa, where the sun’s rays can be more intense than usual.

6. Sunscreen Lotion

Guys, let me tell you one thing if you are going to Goa for the first time. Sunscreen is very important in Goa. While in Goa, you are definitely going to spend your entire days either by the beach or hopping to different tourist attractions. And, the Sun in Goa is pretty much harsh, even in December. Hence, Sunburn is quite common problem in Goa as the sun rays are extremely strong there. The best way to prevent sunburn is by using sunscreen. Make sure you apply sunscreen lotion on your face and exposed areas of body at least 15 minutes before stepping out. If you have sensitive skin, you can use a lower SPF which will not irritate your skin. Make sure to use a good waterproof and sweat proof sunscreen lotion of an SPF 50 or higher for your trip to Goa. Also, make sure to reapply sunscreen every two hours to keep your skin protected.

7. Dress

Don’t forget to carry a couple of dresses for places which there is a dress code like nightclubs or casinos.

8. A Tote Bag

Yes, a big Tote bag is important to carry your as well as your family members belongings safe at one place . You can keep your essential stuff like lip balms, moisturisers, lip gloss, hair brush, water bottle, wallet all at one place without any hassle.

9. ID Proofs 

Don’t forget to take your Id’s proofs like PAN Card, driving license in case if you plan to rent vehicles in Goa.

10. Zip Lock Bags 

You might want to consider carrying a zip lock bag to keep your phone, cash and cards in case you want to go indulge in water activities and  there is no one to take care of your stuff.

There is one thing I must tell all those people who are going to goa for the first time. You can easily get all these stuffs like clothes, footwear and accessories in Goa.
