BOLINAO "Yellow Sand Beach and Enchanted Cave"

2nd day

Upon reaching the mini bus terminal, I called Kuya Julius para sunduin kami. I already contacted him beforehand for the tour. Agreed price is P1200 inclusive of tour, hatid sundo sa terminal, and serving as our guide. Tourist spots to see are Enchanted cave, Bolinao Falls, Bolinao Lighthouse and Patar Yellow Sand Beach. I asked him if he could do a sidetrip to Rock bed resort near the town proper since dun naming balak mag check in. He suggested na we check out first a resort na near Brgy Patar na ok daw ang service. Room is 2k per night, with a/c and CR. Resort name is Rock View Resort. We said ok and we went there. Travel time from town proper is 30-40 mins. Malayo layo talaga pero if we’re doing the tour, mas ok if dun ang base naming since within the area lang ang mga tourist spots.

with Kuya Julius - GOOD SERVICE!

Rock View Resort is within Brgy Patar. It has different types of accomodations like kubo cottage for 2-4pax, w/ or w/o cr, A/C rooms for 2-4pax. Peaceful surroundings. It also has an amazing view of the rock formations on the beach front. We decided to stay here kasi ok ang place. So after check in sa Rock View Resort, bihis lang then went straight na sa tour.

1st stop is Enchanted Cave. Entrance is P120 if including swimming, if hindi mag swim P90. Clear fresh water. sarap dito, puwede magrent ng life vest just not sure how much yun rental. Better go here early kasi pa-tanghali kasi mas dumadami yun tao. Left here after 1 hr.

2nd stop, Bolinao Falls. From brgy patar, almost 1 ½ hr ang biyahe to falls. No entrance fee but cottages have a rental fee of P100, salbabida is P30-40. Umaabot ng 18 feet yun lalim ng tubig so if you don’t know how to swim better rent a salbabida. Sarap tumalon sa may falls, kasi no worries na may tamaan na bato. Just make sure na marunong kayo lumangoy. While we were there kasi, muntik nang may malunod. Ang tapang din naman kasi, di pala siya marunong lumangoy, tumalon pa rin siya sa falls. Akala yata niya eh may aalalay sa kanya. Buti na lang may mga sumagip sa kanya.

3rd stop, Bolinao Lighthouse. Take your picture dun sa paakyat pa lang ng lighthouse para kita yun ng buo.

4th stop, Patar Yellow Sand Beach. The sand is as soft as boracay but not as white. Water is very clear and clean. Medyo mabato lang nga. Sarap dito tumambay. This is is a public beach nga pala. Walang entrance fee though there are cottages for rental. Meron din public restrooms so you can take a bath here after swimming. Meron din souvenir shops dito. This is just 15-20 mins away from Rock View Resort.

Got back to the resort around 6:30PM na, while 1 of us took a shower, the others ate dinner. We were served Inihaw na liempo, porkchop, bangus, salted egg w/ tomatoes, rice and 1.5L coke. Paid 540 for the meal for the 4 of us. Sulit na rin kasi marami naman na-serve. After that, took a shower, prepared our bags for the travel back to manila, then went to sleep.
