Beach Love: Paguriran Island and Lagoon (Part 2)

Only the beach could wake me up and get up really early. I don't have the luxe of time to spend mornings often beside the beach, that's why I'm pretty determined to yolo the moment. To walk along the shoreline with your partner beside you, wait for sunrise with my camera in hand, listen to the calming beach waves, get emotionally motivated by my daily devotion, and thinking what to eat for breakfast! Indeed, a good morning.

Day 2 plan is to take a dip to a waist deep lagoon. You should be early before low tide. We got there 7am. Hello Sun!

How to get there?

From Manila: We took a bus going to Legazpi City, Bicol. We always trust Cagsawa buses when we go to Bicol to visit the kids. Get the la-Z-boy seats around 950php. Estimate travel time, count 8-10 hours of butt burning transpo with 2 stop overs.

From Legazpi: Go to bus terminal and look for van services going to Sorsogon. Fare is 90php each. Travel time, 1-2 hours no traffic. Then get off to the last stop, Sorsogon Market.

From Sorsogon: Walk around and look for Sm Hypermarket. There you'll find the jeepneys going to Sawanga. Fare is 40php each. This jeep will take you directly to Paguriran BEACH!

Before hitting the beach, you have to buy food supplies, water, snacks and even fresh veggies and meat from the market. There's no restaurants or any food establishments at at the beach, only sari-sari store. So, bring your own food.

You can request freshly cooked meals from the locals at the beach. There are polite and hospitable. Just bring your groceries and tip them well. They are good in cooking sea foods, don't let them cook adobo or any red meat meals.

Where to stay?

I only had one choice for that time. Fully booked lahat. I didn't got the air-conditioned rooms, so we settled for a nipa hut/kubo house. It has one bath, one bedroom with king size bed, living area, and our own karaoke area outside. 700php per night is not bad.

Have a safe trip! Let's discover untouched beaches around the Philippines.

Beach Love: Paguriran Island and Lagoon (Part 1)

Ang bilis ng oras. Alam mo bakit?...  Kasi, tumatakbo. ^_^

It's a celebration of our second anniversary. Time flies so fast.
Alam mo kung bakit? haha..NO.

We always want an escape from our daily work routines. Escape to a serene and tranquil surrounding without stress where all you have to do is chill. Unwind and unwired. A place where we can call ourselves strangers. A place where you can freely do anything without anyone judging you.

Going to places we've never been gives us a thrill. To discover new things, together.

Bicol is a familiar place for my partner. That's his hometown. I decided to spend our 2nd year with 2 kids. Two years celebrated with lovely two rascals multiplied our happiness as a couple. Indeed, it was a happy happy anniversary.

We are all first-timers here. Haunting a remote kid-friendly beach requires research skills. Thanks to travel bloggers who are passionate in documenting their trips. Detailed and beneficial to their readers. Thank God. We made it to Paguriran Island!

It's a long ride going to the beach.
When you see this spot, remember that you'll still pass 8 barangays to get there. 
Entrance. The beach is peeking.
Finally, beach.
Dylan and Art redefined chill.
Water Dash.
kalyo alert. salt water heals.

The sun sets and my emotion alights.

Try not to confuse attachment and love.
Attachment is about dependency and has more to do with love of self than love of another.
Love without attachment is the purest love because it isn’t about what others can give to you because you’re empty.
It is about what you can give other because you’re already full.
