Bohol: Sweet Sunshower in Anda


The town of Anda, located in the southeastern part of Bohol is slowly emerging as an alternative destination to the more popular yet commercialized beach resorts in Panglao Island. With its gorgeous stretch of white sand beach, unique cave pools and a laid back ambiance, the town is quietly drawing tourists who are looking for a closer-to-nature experience. Aside from these aforementioned attractions, Anda's east coast location also offers what the west-side Panglao lacks--an unobstructed view of the stunning sunrise.

Bohol: Snapshots of Beautiful Anda


The quaint town of Anda nestles on the southeastern coast of Bohol, approximately 100 kilometers from the bustling Tagbilaran City. Its far and away location made it less touristy than the more popular Panglao Island. However, in terms of tourist spots, this quaint town can hold its own as it is home to white sand beaches, dive spots and cave pools which are definitely worthy additions to the list of Bohol's must visit attractions. 

Here are some photos taken during our very recent travel to Anda...

Siargao: Gloomy Skies and Rolling Waves at Cloud 9


After about three to four hours of sleep, we woke up early at around 3:30 AM. It was our second day in the island of Siargao and we planned to leave our accommodation at General Luna early and head straight to Magpupungko Tidal Pool which is about an hour away. To our dismay, however, we were informed that our hired jeepney will be arriving only at 6 AM.

We spent time thinking about other options until finally someone came up with an idea--why don't we catch the sunrise at Cloud 9? After all, the world-famous surf spot is just a tricycle ride away.

Siargao Island Hopping Guide: Guyam Island, Daku Island and Naked Island


Siargao Island, in the Province of Surigao del Norte, is dubbed as the Surfing Capital of the Philippines. But this teardrop-shaped island actually offers more than just the world-famous Cloud 9 waves. For non-surfers, one of the must-try things to do is to hop to its three island destinations, namely Guyam Island, Daku Island and Naked Island. With its soft white sands kissed by azure, emerald waters, each of these three islands possesses a unique charm and picturesque setting making it ideal for swimming, snorkeling and beach bumming.
