    Basking at the Beach: My Personal Favorites

    Summer time. It’s the season for sun, sand, and waves. And in the Philippines, summers are scorching hot, with temperatures reaching up to 35 degrees Celsius on a typical summer day. To cool off, Pinoys love to go to the beach, slather on some sunscreen and have a cool dip in the ocean or at the pool. Over the years, I've collected lots of family photos on the beach. Here are some of my favorites.

    Conserve and Protect Oceans (CAPOceans) Foundation Resort

    Who could have thought that a Non-Government Agency houses a wonderful beach lot area in Calatagan, Batangas? It serves a dual purpose of accommodating trainings for the conservation of our wildlife and has been opened to the public where the income generated shall be used for additional funding of its projects. Because of its location, Calatagan was made the jump-off point for the EcoRescue (ER) live-aboard series. It is a program that aims to transform recreational divers into conservationists by teaching them how to monitor marine parks.

    Tierra Salva Lakeview Resort

    Who wouldn't want to spend the weekend relaxing in front of the famous Taal Lake of Batangas? This is a dream for the family as we just used to go at the nearby resort (Bahay ni Capt.) to get away from the city. As much as we love the place, (and keep it to ourselves hehe) we have decided to open it to the public but for now we can only accommodate day trips.

    "Bahay Kubo" ni Captain. The owner of this beautiful resort is a friend of my Dad, Capt. Rico Jay Hermoso. They used to be shipmates on board during their seaman days. I immediately fell in love with the place the moment i step foot on it. The view of Taal is perfect not to mention the sunrise and sunset. There is so much that you can do here. On our first day, we rode a boat to the Taal volcano.
