So here it is, (finally) my friends and I’s Potipot adventuuuure!
It will be a photo-heavy post so please be patient. Haha! Actually, I tried my best to just pick atleast 10-15 pictures for this but I just can’t. The place is just so beautiful that I had to include every beautiful picture that my friends took. It’s worth it, I promise. :)
Since we were all from the South, it was a one hell of a loooooong trip going to Zambales. But all for the love of beach, we endured the (almost) 8 hours of travel (and almost 9 hours going back). Music + side stories were our company. :)
We stayed in Sunbloom Resort for 2 days and 1 night. The resort’s fine. The room was big and spacious (we were 13), clean and the staffs were okay but not so accommodating since they weren’t replying to our emails and texts until we were just an hour away from their resort. We almost thought it was a scam. Haha!
Rating: 4 out of 5. :)
The beach near the resort was kind of, uhm, dirty? No, not really. But we weren’t able to experience it since our goal was to go to Potipot Island which was a boat ride away from our resort.
The ride costs 400 for 6 pax roundtrip so go! Kesa languyin mo diba? Haha chos!
Aaaand we were greeted by the white sand of the beach @_@ But wait, before you enjoy your stay, you’ll need to pay 100/pax for the entrance fee for day trip and 300 for overnight. You need to bring your own tent nga lang.
See the difference of the sand? (Sunbloom vs. Potipot)
What can I say about Potipot? It was beautiful, no doubt about that. But I think it’s not well-maintained. I mean c’mon, 100 pesos each but we still see lumots here and kalat there? Madumi siya talaga. I’m no perfectionist pero sabi tulad ng sabi nila, “I know one when I see one.” I just wish they’ll use the money (entrance fee) to make the island more attractive because it really is a promising summer destination. #justsaying :P
Anywaaaaaay, here’s the left side of the beach. It took us 15-20 mins to find a place were we can settle our things before dipping. This part right here was the “cleanest” part for us. Some has lumot on the beach. :( No wonder the people were all here.
But in all fairness, though some part has lumot, the water was still clear but mabato siya so ouchy sa feet. Haha!
Hangten. Hahaha! Mine and boyfie’s.
Made by my artist bestfriend again! Our gift to Potipot. Haha!
The next day, were lucky to spot a place at the right part of the beach. It was clean (sort of) and not much people around so the place was all ours. I’m so happy! Haha!
Souvenirs of course!
Breathtaking as i’ve told you! (but spot the dumi too. :P)
Spotted this kahoy formation (what the.. haha!) and we had a little pictorial over here. Haha!
Group picture before swimming!
It was definitely a one-for-the-books trip! With these crazy friends of mine, expect an equally crazy trip. I just can’t kwento since we have this “What happens in Potipot, stays in Potipot” but.. the boys were epic performers! Hahaha. Sorry guys I really can’t help it!! :P I enjoyed this trip and i’m hoping to have another epic getaway with all of you. <3
Kisses to end this post. Sending it to all of you because I love you for reading this! :*
