    We’re all so fond of oceans and beaches that even just a sight of it makes our heart leap for joy! The unexplainable feeling of excitement while your boat is nearing the beach, or while you’re walking towards a pristine sandy shore is beyond explanation! But what about climbing a hill to have a bird’s eye view of your favorite beach? In this post, I have listed 7 beaches in the Philippines that looks even more lovely when viewed from a hilltop! This is a compilation of proofs that the view looks more gorgeous from up there, with your own naked eye and not just from your drone!   1. ANAWANGIN…

    16 Awesome Island Hopping Spots in the Philippines

    Philippines, with its archipelagic state, is unarguably a country that never runs out of beautiful islands to offer. It comprises more than seven thousand islands—all having their own unique charm. That being said, island-hopping is one of the major things to do in the Philippines. Several island-hopping destinations, may it be off-the-beaten or popular, are just within reach for those seeking a world-class and adventure-filled experience. In this post, I created a list of amazing island-hopping destinations that we have visited across the country, as well as other equally wonderful sites that still remain unchecked on our bucket-list.   1.

    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…

    Calaguas Travel Guide + Itinerary and Budget

    When we hear Calaguas, what instantly comes to our mind is a long stretch of pristine beach with only few cottages that serve as temporary home for the city dwellers seeking to be away from everything. That’s how we see it, at least for us, considering that we were one of the first people who beheld its untouched beauty even before it rose to fame big time. As a matter of fact, on our first visit we had the whole beach all to ourselves as if we rented it for a couple of days, that was 2014. Over the years, many things has changed. It’s not just about few cottages…

    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…
