10 Beaches in Visayas that you should not miss

cover

Author’s Note: You can skip the first two paragraphs. They are useless and overly dramatic for an introduction.

You’ve been warned. For the past years, I have always been certain what I’ll be doing and where I’ll be going for the summer. However, this year is an exemption. With the number of close friends following other trails in life, I was left with no choice but to deal with summer alone. The initial plan was to trek some newly-discovered hiking destinations in my hometown; however, the universe has prepared a different plan for me. Out of a random chat conversation, I found myself getting booked on a place which was never listed on my “to-go list”. And much to my surprise, I found myself in a territory which I’m not really fond of – the beach.

I have nothing against the seas, the shore, and the seashell. I just easily get bored with the melodious sound of the wave, the salty breeze, and the direct heat of the sun. Unlike the mountains, I don’t usually feel the usual pounding of my heart and my heavy breathing. It’s too calm. And for someone whose attention span would last for nearly five minutes, it’s difficult not to get bored.  But you see, that time, upon sitting down on the sands and getting myself bored with the sails and waves, I have realized how fast-paced I have tracked my life. It’s like somebody’s always chasing after me. Ninja trips over the weekend. Beating the deadline. Waking up early and getting home late. Everything is in a hurry. Probably this is the reason why the universe brought me to this unfamiliar territory, my road less traveled – to keep calm and live life.

Too dramatic for an introduction. Here’s my list of beaches that you should not miss in the Visayas area!

Hope you’ll enjoy beaching the way I did. Don’t forget to bring your trash along with you. Mother Nature has been taking a lot of stress from us, let’s not add on it. See you on trails? Or on seas.

  1. This is genuinely a great list of beaches to amble around. I have seen a few of them and they’re truly amazing. I never find your first two paragraphs drudging at all, as always, you never fail to wow me whenever I drop by on your blog. I’m not really a beach lover as well, only I always caught myself enjoying the beach and I just don’t know why.
