I love summer. When this season of the year comes, what I have vision in my mind is the enchanting picture of spending a vacation at the beach. Just thinking about it brings back memories from the summer get-away I spent in Coco Beach with my husband last year.
Coco Beach Resort
is one of the most beautiful vacation spot in the Philippines. It is located in one of the beautiful coves of Puerto Galera
, in the historical island of Oriental Mindoro. Here in the old days, Spanish galleons passed by trading routes between Europe,
Mexico and the East.
Getting there is simple. We took the Coco Beach Express
ervice of the resort in Manila. They are very sharp in departure times.
The first time I stepped on this laid-back and stunning island, I fell in love with it. It is a place where the sea is blue, corals and fishes in different colors and shape, and the hills full of coconut palms swaying with the breeze. There is a pool on top of the hill which they call the silent pool because
place’s calm ambiance. People who have passion in diving will definitely love this place because there are lots of diving sites
. I am so amazed watching the divers
walk towards their boat, wearing their diving suits and gears, then head to their diving destination. We stayed there for six days in Deluxe Heritage rooms. Coco Beach truely offers the largest facilities in Puerto Galera. We enjoy ourselves in beach and bar hopping, shopping, dining, walking along the beach, and of course, snorkeling. The rum chocolate ice cream at Le Bistro
Bar and the “sinigang
” (pork with vegetables in tamarind soup) at Bondi’s Restaurant
is awesome. I told myself, this is the dream place where I want to settle someday. Perfectly, this is the only one true nature paradise on Earth.
