"PROPER SUNGLASSES" Top 5 Page for this destination Djibouti Packing List Tip by DAO

Djibouti What to Pack: 15 reviews and 29 photos


Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: The sun is really strong here. You are not far from the Equator and many months (like December) get no rain and really no clouds either. Your eyes are getting battered! UVA rays will literally fry your eyes. I know. I have a damaged retina. Buying cheapo imitation glasses will only make you look better to other people. They actually cause your pupils to dilate and let even more UVA rays in to do more damage. Buy some proper UVA protection glasses. I recommend Ray Bans (those pictured are for prescription eyeglasses). Be aware that there are a lot of very good fakes here, so buy before you travel to ensure you get the real ones.
