again, we woke up early for breakfast and TOUR A island hopping. Breakfast was continental, with a few slices of bread with Butter and Jam and some fruits. A bit lacking but since its free, who are we to complain right?
7 Commandos Beach
Ipil Beach (was not able to go)
some pics while sailing... emotera mode on.. LOL
|now, where in manila can you see a view like this?|
|artista teh? pinagkakaguluhan ka hehe|
|now, kaninong daliri yan ha?|
Upon reaching Small Lagoon, i suggest renting a kayak for easier maneuvering inside the lagoon. First time I went to El NIdo last 2013, di kami nagrent and nahirapan kami mag-ikot sa loob dahil lalanguyin mo pa, nakakapagod. Masyadong malawak ang Small Lagoon.
This time, we rented a kayak. 300pesos ang rent and kaya ng 2pax per kayak. Since we were 9 pax, My mom had a solo kayak and was assisted by 1 of our boatmen.
|kayak for rent, 300 lang po|
|my mom and kuya boatman|
|isipin niyo na lang, pano niyo lalanguyin yan ng hindi kayo napapagod|
Pagkabalik sa labas ng small lagoon, bumaba muna kami sa tubig para magpalamig. ang sarap ng tubig! We wanted to stay pa sana but we're starving na rin so we proceeded to SIMIZU ISLAND where we'll have our lunch.
|my mom had a quick swim before lunch|
|ang taguan namin|
|grilled fish and squid|
|mussells (sosyal di ba, tahong lang naman haha)|
|grilled liempo and shrimps|
|talong with century tuna|
After having our fill of Simizu Island, we then proceeded to 7 commando Beach
After a tiring day, this is the best place to end your Island Hopping tour. The beach itself is not that deep, mala-boracay ang tubig. Malinis and malinaw. Very safe as they cordoned off the area to note kung hanggang saan lang dapat ang mga tourists. They have a mini-store where you can buy snacks, drinks and halo-halo.
|sarap ng halo halo|
|100 pesos for this halo halo|
after a while, napansin namin na parang uulan na so we searched for a cottage. (walang bayad ang cottage dito, basta walang tao, puwede mo lagay ang gamit mo)
|our cottage with a great view|
Was supposed to go to another beach after pero we declined na. 7 commando is a great beach for beach bumming and ending the day. We stayed there until past 4pm then went back to the town after.
That night, we had dinner at COCO BAR at the beachfront.
half of the group ordered filipino dishes while the other half had pasta, salad and pizza. Food is good and cheap. We paid around 100 per pax for dinner. Went back to hotel and slept. Need to wake up early again since early trip kami back to Puerto Princesa.
