    Kwentong Dagat | A Quiet Beach Getaway in Liwliwa

    No matter how many beach destinations we have on our list, there’s no denying that Zambales is one of our top choices when it comes to quick beach getaway. It is one of the nearest beach destinations from Manila with serene beaches, fun activities, and beautiful resorts—so no wonder why. Kwentong Dagat is a newly built beach resort in Liwliwa, Zambales. We went there few weeks ago with friends, and we definitely had fun!

    Revisiting Coralview Beach Resort in Morong, Bataan

    About a month ago, I received a call from the owner, Sir Jun, inviting us to come again at Coralview and bring my family as a way of saying thanks for the blog. He even pointed out that we don’t have to work so it’s purely a vacation (no pressure in taking photos and writing a post about it). However, I still want to immortalize our experience hence I’m writing this. 😉 The journey So last June 13, we made our way for another beach trip despite the unfavorable weather. This time, we brought our own wheels so we could reach Morong faster (≈2 hours) from Bulacan, because we didn’t want mom…

    I Love Calaguas Island Resort | A Charming Retreat at the Heart of Mahabang Buhangin Beach

    Calaguas is basically known as a beach camping haven with pristine waters and looong stretch of white sand beach. It is one of the top-pick destinations for city dwellers, or even locals who wish to have a break from the daily routine. People usually set up their tents and spend a night or two in the island to fully experience how it’s like to be away from everything. Today, camping in tents is no longer the only option as many island resorts have popped up one by one over the years. The once bare and empty beach is now dotted with resorts offering services and accommodations. But there’s one resort…

    Coralview Beach Resort | A Relaxing Getaway in Morong, Bataan

    I’m pretty sure most of us (if not all) already came to a point wherein all we want to do is to just relax. Doing something over and over again for a long time makes us feel worn out and the best solution we have is to pause for a while and do something different from the daily routine. Because sometimes, the most productive and fruitful thing to do is to rest. Last week, we went to Morong, Bataan to have that much deserved vacation. We’ve been constantly operating and managing our business so we thought what we badly needed is a break from what we’re doing for at least…

    Isla Frontera de Pacifica Resort | Dingalan’s Next Top Attraction

    I’ve been very busy the past few months until an invitation reminded me that I badly needed a beach break. Sometimes we tend to forget that there’s more to life than just pushing yourself too much for a living. We forget that for our works to be done more efficiently, we need to unwind and take a break. Anything too much is bad. Balance is the key, as they say. But for now, let’s cut the drama and proceed to the actual trip. We were very excited we left home at 2:00 in the morning and arrived roughly 4 hours later. Isla Frontera de Pacifica Resort is about 30 minutes…

    Stella Maris Beach Resort | Camping Haven in Bagac Bataan

    Due to its close proximity to Manila, Bataan has become one of the go-to places whenever people crave for a quick escape from the busy city life. There are lots of beach resorts lined up in this west coastal part of Luzon (see list of resorts in Bataan), but there’s one beach resort that’s unique among others. I mean they all have unique features but this resort that I’m pertaining to has a natural attribute that you’ll not find in any other resorts in Bataan. When you think of a beach scene, you basically see clusters of coconut palm trees creating a complete tropical beach vibe. But what if Pine…
