The Beauty that is Puerto Princesa: Honda Bay


If there would be such a thing called paradise, I would always attribute it to Palawan. And the moment I set foot on the beautiful sandy shores of Palawan, I knew I had to come back for more. I discovered the beauty of Palawan when I was 7, and I came back last 2008 because I knew I just had to. Its beauty is insatiable that I would never grow tired of being a happy traveler in Palawan. I know I will always come back for more of Palawan!

Puerto Princesa is more than awesome. Setting foot on Palawan gives every Filipino a sense of pride because Palawan is truly world class and truly at par with other famed beaches from other countries. I can say this even if I haven’t been able to the other parts of Palawan. I know I have yet to cross out other must-see locations in Palawan like Coron, El Nido, and Amanpulo, but still, Puerto Princesa managed to take my breath away to the point I was gasping for air because of too much excitement!

You may now close your jaw.

La Luz Beach Resort, Laiya Batangas


Batangas is usually close to the hearts of the people of Metro Manila due to its convenience and proximity to the city. It provides convenient escapades away from the city life with its beautiful beaches.

Laiya in Batangas is a long strip of beach with off-white and grainy sandy shores. The warm blue waters welcome you, as the waves slowly come by crashing by the shore.

We tried out La Luz Beach Resort. The resort offers such a relaxing atmosphere to it that you can easily sleep on the shores of the resort. It’s a popular place to surrender to solitude as it offers peace and quiet, away from the stressful city life. 

I visited La Luz in the summer of 2007, along with several friends to keep me company. It’s true. The overall atmosphere of the beach resort is definitely relaxing. Apart from that, a buffet is offered 5 times during the day: breakfast, morning merienda, lunch, afternoon merienda, and dinner. Talk about having a vacation!
