Before the year ends, we made a trip to a pocket beach in La Union. What’s good about pocket beaches are it is not crowded and the waves are not big considering the resort is located just a mere 10 minute drive to San Juan, La Union which can be considered as a surfing capital of Luzon.
I am not really a type of person who swim or enjoy water activities. Rather, I am the type who enjoy and take advantage of the downtime in the beach. Let’s say that beach bumming (less the sunbathing, until just recently about the sunbathing part) is my favorite activity while on the beach.
I wouldn’t miss the sunset to any beach vacation. Sunsets are always the highlight of my beach vacations. I am so glad that Philippines is blessed with gorgeous sunset. Isn’t sunset so lovely and romantic? Might as well add that sunsets give that automatic filter to your photos!
This pocket beach resort is aptly named “Sunset Bay Resort” located in San Fernando, La Union. The place is owned by an European expat.
I have to say that the ambiance of the resort is so good and relaxing. And the food are to die for. I specifically love their breakfast set.
And of course, will I pass on those photo session by the beach on morning? Of course not!
Before heading back to Manila, we had a quick lunch at Halo Halo de Iloko. I believe that because of this trip, I gained some pounds? Anyways, vacations are made to gain weight aside from Holiday season. Ilocos cuisine are so great and the Halo-Halo is very nice. If you wonder what is halo-halo, it is the Philippines’s version of Japanese Kagigori or Korean Patbingsu (plus a lot of ingredients and ice cream!).
‘Til the next pose & post! This ends my La Union vacation series. More travel soon.
