After our accelerated term ended and before we leave for the term abroad (which my Seoul sisters and I will blog about here), our block immediately planned a getaway in the far and green lands of Bataan. The place where we stayed was nearly a 4-hour drive from Ateneo, including a 40-minute stopover in NLEX for lunch.
Our main itinerary is Camaya Coast Beach resort. It was a good hour or so drive from where we stayed but I can’t really say for sure since we got lost along the way LOL.
The beach was lovely.You don’t have to think about stepping on seaweeds or stones, or swimming with jellyfish. The water levels were also surprisingly friendly. I was already 50 meters away from the shore but the water level was still knee-deep. Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing depends on your personal preference. I personally enjoyed it because I can stay farther away from the shore and sit with the small waves against my back.
The resort also has two infinity pools: a kiddie pool and an adult pool. Both looked really cool and well-maintained.
The entrance fee was just 499php inclusive of lunch and a kayak.The kayaks were unfortunately “under maintenance” at the time so we weren’t able to try it. Nonetheless, the beach trip was fun and relaxing, exactly what we needed after a stressful semester. So excited for what’s in store for all of us in the next few months.
