I always thought of Puerto Galera as an overrated tourist destination. But goddamn, one afternoon as I was playing in the water, I got shook. I caught myself falling in love with this place.
For the first weekend of March, Justin, DJ, and I headed to Calatagan’s famous Burot Beach. Other than encountering a couple of poisoned youths, it was a pretty relaxing weekend.
The crystal clear waters of Cagbalete Island, not to mention the seclusion even though we’re roughly 5 hours away from Manila, seems like a dream. It’s been two weeks since that birthday weekend, and I can’t wait to go back. Let’s dig deep into the recesses of my overthinking mind and try to spin a tale of what went down.
Prepare yourself for a long blog post.
It’s always been on top of my wishlist to visit the trilogy of coves in San Antonio, Zambales. I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of Anawangin and Nagsasa, and even its lesser known sisters Talisayen and Silanguin. Pictures taken by bloggers who have been there long ago are enough to paint a general picture of the coves’ beauty: light gray sand that looks immaculately white under the bright sunlight, clear waters, the agoho trees, and the peaks of the Zambales range in the background.
