Chasing Sunset in Glan, Sarangani


The opportunity to travel to the southern edge of Mindanao came when I tagged along with my  friends who joined a triathlon event in Sarangani two weeks ago. It was my first time to visit this southernmost province of Mindanao. What made me more excited about this travel was the fact that the race is actually part of the 2014 Sarangani Bay Festival (also known as SarBay Fest) celebration.  I never heard much about this festival before. Little did I know that it is actually the biggest beach festival in Mindanao.

From our hometown in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon, we traveled 373 kilometers to reach the Municipality of Glan, Sarangani. We passed through the provinces of North Cotabato, Maguindanao, Sultan Kudarat and South Cotabato, stopped for lunch at General Santos City, before finally arriving in the quaint town of Glan.

Later that afternoon, I went along with Kenneth and his son Jacob in attending the race briefing for the triathlon's kids category at Seafront Beach. The resort is located Barangay Tango, about 12 kilometers away from Glan proper.


While the briefing was being held, I walked towards the gray sand beachfront. Dusk was already setting in so I hurriedly set up my camera and planted the tripod on the sands. 



Despite the absence of explosive colors, it was still a lovely sunset on the calm Sarangani Bay. It somehow relaxed my senses after the long road trip and prepared me for the exciting SarBay Fest which I would be witnessing on the next two days.
