San Vicente beach which boasts clear waters

Been to this laid-back paradise twice in 2014 and 2017. I am still amazed by the raw beauty of this beach which stretches along the coastlines of 4 barangays. So tranquil with few resorts dotting on the west part of the 14km long beach. It’s a newly opened airport in June 2018 which serviced Philippine Airlines is the most accessible mode of transportation when coming from Manila. Other options are from Puerto Princesa International Airport then another bus or van ride in San Jose Terminal in Puerto Princesa.

The first time I visited here, the airport was still under construction as well as the paving of the road. Beach lots were already sold out with proper fencing. After my second revisit in 2017, I observed an improvement in public roads from Alimangohan down to the town proper. We still stayed in our favorite accommodation in Myrla’s Garden in New Agutaya which is a few minutes away from the beach.

Myrla’s Garden offers comfortable rooms at affordable prices.

Activities to do mostly focuses on the beach and trekking to the jungles of San Vicente. This is the best time to visit this place. One can rent a small motorboat for 1000.00 and is good for the whole day transfer to the next beach in Port Barton which is another attraction in the area. Or just simply enjoy the beach while sipping fresh coconut juice or a cold bottle of beer. I forgot to mention, this is one of the best places for sunset-watching.

I live my life everyday celebrating. An easy go lucky guy. Always hungry for adventure and learning different cultures. If I'm not at the summit, I'm at the sea. Traveling is my way of life. Deeply in love with mountaineering, swimming, skinny dipping, island hopping, fishing, and cycling. Loves good food, beer, music, and good human conversation. At home, I used to cook, do yoga, and meditate. A coffee lover. Stay most of my time at the outdoors, breathing the cold air, tasting the saltiness of sea breeze, watch the waves swiftly caressing the sand, listen to the flowing water of the river, pitch my tent or hang my hammock and sleep under 5 billion stars. I hate manicured places (resorts). Adores sunrise and sunset which gives me extraordinary energy.
