The Sunset, The Waves, and The Sand

When things get tough and when there’s a need to de-stress and think things over, the beach is definitely one of the best destinations. The combination of a beautiful sunset and a little bit of waves is just perfect.

Sunsets are truly magical!

The sun left a magical moment as it slowly disappeared into the horizon.

Sometimes, sunset is also a moment of solitude.

Enjoying a cup of freshly brewed coffee with this scenery is enough to start a great day.

The Sun, The Sand, The Sea, and the Infinity Pool

Spending a day or two alone at a luxury beach resort is an awesome experience.

I don’t know why but I have a thing for beachfront infinity pools. This kind of sight is very therapeutic.

 Waking up to this kind of view is simply spectacular.


The sunset, the beach and the infinity pool… it’s a beautiful life.

 While others were getting stuck at the rush hour traffic, I was having a blissful sunset swim at this infinity pool.


One of the amazing sights while having breakfast.

   Amazing interior design!


I left this place with a heavy heart. I hope I can stay longer next time.


From Sunrise to Sunset

I will never get tired of going to the beach…  it’s my happy place 🙂

I’ve been to a lot of beautiful beaches already but this one is really different. It’s not the typical powder-white sand beach but it has that certain charm that will make one fall inlove at first sight. The place is called Antulang resort in Dumaguete, Philippines.

The view from the poolside bar is truly relaxing.

I instantly fell inlove with this place the first time I saw it in 2006. I don’t know why it took me 8 years to go back.

We’ve got company

Walking along those narrow pathways is kind of scary especially on certain areas without railings.

We walked for almost a kilometer to see this. Watching the sun sets through the lens is one of my favorite things to do at the beach.

The Place I Will Keep Going Back To

After nearly over two decades, I got the chance to swim [a bit] in this clear water again.

This is one place that I will keep going back to. I must admit, I sort of neglected this place for over a decade. After graduating from college, I got busy building my career and I never bothered to visit this beautiful place for such a long time. One December afternoon, my mother’s convincing power got all over me and I finally decided to pack my bags. Since then, I keep going back once or twice a year but it was only until my last visit that I decided to have a little swim. It was one gloomy afternoon in November and the sea was really flat, I just could’t resist it.
