Essentials for surviving on a desert island


I’m sure you may have sometimes been asked what you would take with you to a desert island, right? But do we really know just what we need to stay safe while we’re living alone in a paradise? Living on a desert island has its advantages: you can have a dip in a different corner of the island each day; the sea’s a part of you. In a word, life on an island has a different pace. Landscapes are framed in fascinating blue waters that will steal your breath away.

We have all seen movies or read books in which the protagonist is abandoned on a desert island with nothing more than his intelligence to survive. Can you imagine finding yourself in the same situation? It’s time to embark on a new adventure and fill your backpack with experiences. That’s why we’ve made a list of necessary things to take with you to a desert island. Let’s begin!

1. Fishing net

The most important thing: food. Fish is the best option for feeding ourselves and keeping hunger at bay. That’s why having a fishing net is bound to help you catch fish more easily.

2. A box of matches

The fish needs to be cooked. Besides, it really cools down a lot at night on desert islands. A fire will be your best ally for eating hot meals and for staying warm. Who wants to make fire by rubbing two stones together?

3. Hammock

Most desert islands are chock-full of trees, and a hammock would be the perfect option for sleeping. Comfortably and at a height from the ground to avoid being bitten by certain insects.

4. Insect repellent

Protecting yourself from insects is very important. There are all kinds of insects on desert islands and some can give you an allergic reaction. Prevention is better than cure!

5. Sun protection

The sun gets very hot during the day. So we must protect our skin from the sun’s rays and thus avoid wearisome burns. Our skin must always be well cared for.

6. Torch

There’s no electricity on a desert island. We’ll need a torch to illuminate our area when night falls and we don’t want to be left in the dark.

7. Knife

A knife like the one Crocodile Dundee himself would take along is indispensable for cutting the fruit off trees, splitting coconuts, chopping up food…

8. boboli swimwear

You’ll need a handful of boboli bathing costumes. It gets very hot on desert islands and you’ll be spending most of your time in the water. You’ll need many a change!
