Just recently, one of our favorite girls from Instagram, the super gorge Gabs Gibbs, turned 18 and celebrated her birthday at Boracay with her closest family and friends. After seeing all sorts of snaps from her celebration, we thought her birthday bash served as the perfect inspiration for a cool beach getaway debut for anyone who loves being by the sea or being under the sun. Want to know how you can have a memorable birthday at the beach? We break it down for you below!

 1  Make sure to bring along your family and barkada on your birthday trip to ensure you'll have the best time ever. Go ahead and plan to wear matching or themed outfits and tote along fun toys (like flamingo or swan inflatables) you can enjoy in the water.

 2  Capture and document everything that happens throughout the getaway! Make it extra fun by choosing to go with a polaroid camera or even have a selfie stick with you to include all your besties in all the photos.


 3  Have one formal dinner by the beach or pool where you and all your friends can get dolled up and have a great night you'll never forget! You can even ask the restaurant or hotel you're check into to decorate the place a certain way. Don't forget to give your guests fun party favors as well!

 4  Plan outdoor activities or water sports you and your whole gang can enjoy throughout the entire trip! Make it extra memorable by trying something you've never done before.

 5  Most of all make sure that you play an active role in planning your birthday bash and stay true to what you enjoy doing instead of trying to please other people. Just have fun and take advantage of being surrounded by such a beautiful place!
