Family Vacation in Boracay (Part 1)

Our summer started a little bit late that the usual. I feel like I we do not have a summer at all. I think this is the first time that I was not able to visit a beach destination in the last 5 years on the months of March to May. Really a bummer, right?

So, you wonder why I this blog entry in the first place? My family has decided that we will visit Boracay on the month of June when Summer is officially over but that did stop us from having a fun time on the famous little island.

This entire series is a photo diary of sort. I do not have long narrative about Boracay and normally when I am in the island, I just enjoy the time though it’s different this time around as this is the first time I was able to visit Boracay with my family.

Palawan (Part 5): The Unexpected Charm and Charisma

Second day in El Nido but our third in the island of Palawan. We thought that we have seen the most of what El Nido can offer as it is very hard to top off what the first day of island hopping tour can offer.

Started the day a little late but nonetheless we enjoyed our time waiting and enjoying the beauty of Bacuit Bay. By the way, Bacuit Bay is the gateway to the islands in El Nido. This is where all sorts of accommodations and socials can be found. It is a small town where you can see a typical Filipino province plus citizens all over the world.

 

The Beauty of Bacuit Bay

 
We arrived at our first island around 10 in the morning. Named as “Helicopter Island” as from afar, the island resembles a helicopter.

We weren’t expecting the waves to be so strong. Scary but we managed to still get out from the boat. At the time our boat docked in the island, most of the best people are already leaving. A good sign that you can enjoy the island. It comes in a some sort of a blessing that we started our tour a little late.

  The sands in Helicopter Island is not as white as the other islands but it is as powdery or even more fine than the islands we have visited on the first day of island hopping. The constant strong waves splashing against the shore also give a different charisma to the island.

Palawan (Part 3): The Perfect Spot

El Nido is a true paradise. Never have I ever been in love with such place before. Been to some of the best beaches in the Philippines but El Nido is completely on a different level (in my own opinion).

Postcard Ready Island

On the first day of our island hopping, one of the last islands we have visited that day is Pinagbuyutan Island. From afar, it screams “Come to me”. I have to say that Pinagbuyutan Island is my favorite place/ island in El Nido. This island is part of Tour B route, so make sure not to miss tour B and most importantly the island.

Stop, Stare and Appreciate

 

Pinagbuyutan Island offers pristine, soft, powdery white sands that can be comparable to some of the world’s most famous beaches. Too bad that I haven’t really tried to enjoy the waters but based on what I’ve seen that day, shallow and crystal clear waters which is perfect for swimming (young and young at heart alike). Ok, I wasn’t able to enjoy the water because I was too excited to have my picture taken on almost all spots you can imagine. Anyways, as you probably know by now, I love going to the beach but it is very seldom that I get to swim or get wet. I’m more of a beach bum: the one who lays in the sands, have pictures taken, read a book than being the adventurous one and do sorts of water activities.

   Another added factor to the island’s charm is those coconut trees lined as if someone has meticulously measured the distance from one tree to another to create an organized chaos with trees. Those trees are just perfection and will always be in your mind as what summer is really all about.

Pinagbuyutan Island is picture perfect, ready to be captured by the camera or your senses anytime. Again, the island is my personal favorite in all of El Nido.
