Owning One of A Hundred Islands


For that day, we owned one private, beautiful island. It was probably the most beautiful beach I have ever been to. Indeed, it’s an island, but a really small one. It’s sand was white but it wasn’t the finest. It’s water was clear but it wasn’t the bluest.. But what made the difference was, that it was ours!!!

Well, not exactly ours… we just rented a boat, picked an island away from all of the tourists and locals and settled in! :D The beach was only big enough for the 10 of us, so no one else dared to join us. A few boats slowed down as they passed by, and you could see they were really envious of our location — but now way were we sharing!

We were mid-morning until mid-afternoon, we had a picnic and then brought out the big cooler filled with beer! It was an awesome place to just sit in the sand and knock back a bottle of beer or two while sunbathing. The water was perfect and calm for getting a break from the hot sun and taking a cool dip! We were all reluctant to leave, but we knew we couldn’t stay. When the high tide comes, most of these islands sink!!! :O

Our own private beach

The Hundred islands is a group of a hundred small islands in Alaminos City, 5-6 hours away from Manila. To get to the islands, you need to rent a boat and travel 20-30 minutes where they take you to the different attractions. Each island is distinct and unique. Some have caves, some have whiter sand, some have houses, some have been adopted and sponsored by different people and companies. In some, there are snorkeling and diving spots. You can rent jet skis, kayaks and those fun fun banana boats!
