Batangas has one of the top lists that we may consider and include in our beach holiday checklist. Located in Nasugbu, Batangas, I have found and discovered a place to fuel my inner wanderlust on the beach.
Having said that, one of the places where you can stay and relax is at Munting Buhangin Beach Reasort located in Nasugbu, Batangas.
So it all started when my friend of mine asked me to accompany her to go to Munting Buhangin Beach Resort together with our other acquaintances. (Yes. I couldn’t say that we’re friends because I haven’t met them yet in person. By any chance, I only knew them on social media because we share the same interest. We love K-POP! Hihihi.)
One of our friends, (whom we only met recently because of some events) owned this resort so we were invited to go with him this weekend. Apparently, most of the expenses would be free aside from food. Wow! 🙂 Therefore, Frecy and I accepted the invitation and decided to go with him. In addition, we’d be there with other K-pop enthusiasts! Hahaha! It’s another chance of meeting and creating new sets of friends again! Yay!
We decided to go there at 6:00 in the morning so that we could steer clear of the traffic jam! While we were hitting the road, I was able to get a chance to know some of the people whom I’d just met for the first time. Our passion about K-pop music really helped a lot to get us closer. It didn’t take us long to become comfortable with each other. ❤
After almost four hours of traveling, we’ve finally reached our destination. But what the funny was, before you could get to the beach, you still need to go through long stairway.(Hahaha! it was kinda tiring ’cause the stairway was pretty long.)
We stayed in one of the family rooms there (that you could rent out if you’re planning to go overnight there; good enough for ten pax) .
After having lunch, we took some rest and went island hopping. Not only that, one of most exciting thing happened was, we tried cliff diving which I’ve never done before! I couldn’t even swim at all. However, due to peer pressure, I still convinced myself to try this just once and for all.
When it was already my turn, I felt like backing out yet I chose to stay because my friends were forcing me try cliff diving! (how could I even do this when I didn’t even know how to swim). They kept telling me that the boatman would give me a hand after I cliff dive. (which he really did to them). Still, I was feeling afraid of my own shadow. This would be the first time doing this. Ugh!
Due to the fact that I was a bundle of nerves at this time, I jumped off the cliff after thirty minutes which made my friends felt disturbed. Hahaha. Yet I was able to do it! Yessss!!!
Then, after trying that action-packed activity, we went island hopping again and went swimming and chitchat with each other.
I might say that the resort is one of the best places to chill out, to get closer with your family or friends and to give a wide berth to stress.
Furthermore, it felt so great because I was able to meet new friends and I’ve learned something new again. I was so proud of myself that I conquered one of my fears! Yay! 🙂
I hope to be back to this place again. ^^ ❤
