BEACH BUM MY ASS!
I've miss out the beach this summer past. What with the lockdown during (summer) months. Resorts were closed, temporarily. Good timing too for some owners doing 'rehabilitation' in time for the re-opening when everything is back to 'normal' conditions again.
Well, what did I do this late? Browsing through on my beach albums. Oh, yes, wishful thinking that someone will TAKE ME BACK, pronto! 😀
I have a deep and profound respect for the ocean and nature. I want all beaches cleaner. But I'm no beach bum myself, truth be told. Rare moments that I stay longer in the waters. I just love whiling my time in the shorelines: sipping pina colada and reading books. Typically I am inactive, idle - as most of my friends describe me - but I am the one who will never fail to entertained them with anything but funny stories. Life of the beach, it is!😀
That said, I have my lists of favorite beaches that I have visited for the past years. Either by invitation through friends or I am the one organizing the get-away.
So, here's the breakdown:
PATAR WHITE BEACH, BOLINAO PANGASINAN
One of the many beaches people of Pangasinan boast about is Patar White Beach in Bolinao. So, if you're in for a holiday, then I recommend this highly. Best to plan out earlier because the beautiful town of Bolinao is home to many natural and man-made wonders. Patar White Beach is a long stretch of off-white sand with the most bluest water one can enjoy. Dubbed as Hidden Treasure of The North, some places were untouched and preserved. The shore is dotted with kubos for a minimal rent. There are stores nearby selling meriendas and even take your order if you want a complete meals. Our place was a paradise on its own as this is fronting another side of the beach but the waters is choppy. Our 3-day vacation took us to famous spots along the area by visiting the historic St. Michael Archangel Church for one, and combing too their public market for some fresh catch-of-the-day. We've cooked our own meals during our stay.

In good company.
|Boracay still mesmerized me in more ways than one. Tourists from around the world come to this paradise with its crystal-clear waters and powder-soft white sand that never get hot even in the afternoon sun. |
PUKA BEACH - a stunningly serene beach, clear turquoise waters and vibrantly colored marine life at Boracay's nearby islands.
|We were blown away by the beautiful islands and cliffs.|
|The natural and preserved beauty of Calaguas Island has always been its major selling point and is something which tourists in general sought after. |
