Friendship, Beach and Stunning Views (at Cagbalete Island)

June 26, 2017 was a regular holiday here in the Philippines, hence we had a long weekend.  My colleagues and I were supposed to conduct a team bonding activity last June 11-13, but it was postponed due to inclement weather. Going to the beach on rainy day (with thunderstorms) is not safe so we decided to move our resort booking to June 24-25, 2017. 

Our group left Manila at 1:30am and arrived at around 5:30am in Mauban, Quezon.  Before to going to the port, we dropped by the public market to buy food supplies and likewise at 7-11 to grab a cup of coffee or hot choco.  

From there, we went to Pansacola Beach Resort in Cagbalete Island which is 45 minutes boat ride from Mauban Port (Pantalan).

It was Thea's first time to ride a boat so imagine her excitement + anxiousness.  She and Nichole were holding hands during our journey to the resort.  I found it too cute and snapped a candid photo of them. By the way, the boat ride was nice, the sea was calm both on our way to the resort and back to Mauban Port last Sunday. 


Cagbalete is a tropical paradise! It may not be the best island in the country but I love it because it's not yet crowded and Pansacola Resort boosts of an amazing beachfront with a long stretch of sandbar.

I will definitely go back to Cagbalete Island,  my family would love it there!
