Corrine LCrystal Cove is a separate island from Boracay. We had a boat stopover when visiting other islands. Great spot for pictures taking and looking into the ocean! The most mesmerizing place was one of the narrow stairway leading down to the cave where the ocean waves break waves. It was quite daunting as the cave leads straight to the ocean and space was slippery and restricted. We tried to take some good photos but due to the cave being darker from inside, we had not much luck.
Sheda11Less visited compared to the White Beach, this place also offers a nice white sand beach and crystal clear waters. However, its swimming area is "cantilado" -- meaning, there's a sudden drop in the depth of the water, which makes it quite dangerous for those who do not know how to swim. Apart from this, Puka Beach is less crowded compared to the White Beach -- hence, more relaxing and peaceful
bonbon_chenFriday beach 🏖️ is really the same foot feeling of flour. The local people specially push sand to take pictures of tourists 📷 (charge) is very artistic 🎨, 🌊 OK 🏊♀️ OK, each hotel has its own beach area, sitting wrong is to pay for it.
Sheda11liked this beach because it was much more peaceful than the main beach. The water is still stunning, although the sand is not as fine. You can walk round the headland from station 1. There isn't a lot here but there is a nice little restaurant where you can eat with your toes in the sand.
Sheda11Called Bulabog (which means disturbance in English), this beach probably called as such because normally, it's the windy side of the island where kite flying and other water sports are done. However, during habagat monsoon (Jun-Sep), sea there shifts to calm, becoming your go-to for swimming. Sand is a bit rocky and water not as clear but it is still a nice place for a dip.Given its location, most also refer to it as the 'back beach' as it is literally a 5- to 10-minute walk from White Beach. You can just go out the main road between Stations 1 and 2. Look for Budget Mart, walk past BPI and when you see a MiniStop to your right, take that road and walk straight ahead.

Newly Opened Aluyan's Place in Cadiz City, Province of Negros Occidental. The site is still being developed so take my review as a primer.
First, going there is around (estimate) 30km from the City Proper of Cadiz and took us around 45minutes to get there. On the way you will be greeted by other Cafes and Resorts from left to right, but Aluyan's Place is a little more farther. No rough roads if you're concerned about that. But the steepness of the final stretch might test non-4 wheel drive vehicles.
There are many motorcycle and bicycle groups we saw when we got there.
Once you get there, you will be asked and checked on the entrance, plus an entrance fee which is around 25 pesos per head Will be charged and you will be presented with a welcome pillar and a winding road that goes up where some may find quesy and those with fear of heights might find a little concerning. Just close your eyes if someone is driving for you.
There will be a first parking lot that could fit around 5 cars just in front of their main pavilion where usual visitors will eat, stay and get the major amenities like the CR, TV and such.
There is another parking lot just above which is wider but not yet developed, hence a little slippery to park in when you visit and there is some rain.
Once you're settled there are a lot of pathwalks to explore, like individual private cottages, a group swing, a mini forest with hammocks, and what appeals to me most is the camp site. Yes there is a camp site!
There are a lot of welcome and directional signs and there are a lot of guides with radios to make sure you are received properly and settled appropriately. You can call to reserve cottages, which I would suggest.
Once you settle down, in our case on the "Christian" cottage, aptly named as we were visiting as a Ministry. You will be immediately presented by food and beverage options and I commend the service crew for providing excellent service even when they have to go up and down the steep steps, back and forth just to get and deliver our orders. They are also all very polite I may say.
They serve freshly cooked food, for our meal the highlight is the Native Chicken Tinola, but all food tastes awesome. And mind you, it's so fresh that all their vegetables are taken fresh, root and all in a farm right there just behind our Cottage.
For coffee drinkers, the coffee is primarily the "Cadiz" flavor, so it's something very traditional as well. They have a slew of food options, and I might just need to go back there to try them all.
The views? Oh how awesome for nature lovers, there are rivers, falls, rice terraces, plains all in front of your and around you. Hills, mountain ranges and yes my ears popped with the air pressure and the breeze invites you to take a nap.
The stillness and quietness is well enough when the generators are down and you can ponder and be at peace with nature while not being too detached with the conveniences.

Boracay Island, one of the top beaches in the Philippines, is blessed with a long stretch of powdery white sand beach (called White Beach), crystal clear and azure waters, a stunning sunset, and more. The island doesn’t fall short on adventures and activities for people of all ages.
You'll never run out of exciting things to do in Boracay, from swimming, island-hopping, diving, snorkeling, parasailing, kayaking, dining, and parties.

Islas de Gigantes is an island chain within the larger Western Visayas archipelago in the Visayan Sea. It is part of the municipality of Carles, Iloilo, Philippines, and the northernmost part of Iloilo province. The Gigantes islands consist of about ten islands; the two largest are Gigantes Norte and Gigantes Sur.
The Gigantes Islands, also known as Islas de Gigantes or the islands of giants, is a remote group of islands located off the coast of Carles and Estancia towns in northeastern Iloilo, Philippines. It takes at least 5 hours to get there from Iloilo City. Those willing to go the “extra mile” can look forward to enjoying beautiful seascapes and a laid-back island lifestyle that Gigantes has to offer. The islands are blessed with pristine white sand beaches, bountiful fresh seafood, and jagged rock formations shrouded by mystical tales of locals. Despite the increase of tourist arrivals in recent years, Gigantes has retained its off-beat charm and remains relatively underdeveloped compared to Boracay, Bohol, and other mainstream tourist destinations in the Philippines.
After taking a trip our driver happened to mention that he was in a band and playing in Shakeys that night so we thought we'd give it a whirl. Music was fantastic and the staff very attentive.
Some previous reviews mentioned poor service but that was definitely not the case for us. Drinks reasonably priced. It was our intention to have a meal but only managed the nachos which were amazing. I would recommend the pulled pork ones although the beef bolognese ones were also good. Thank you for a great evening.
In 1947, “Ramen Sakura"flavor root. Tonkotsu soup was a resarch to first of "umami” (flavor) is conducted at ramen shop in the Kyushu area of Japan. Stewed Chicken bones, Pork bones, Onions, spices, Back sweet fat, Garlic, Kelp etc. boiled for more than 24hours and the original noodles were added, and Tonkotsu Ramen born.
Since 2000 Tonkotsu ramen shop open throughout around the world.Even here in Coron, Japanese owners import ingredients from Japan to get the original tastes and provide it for the guests.
Over my 3 day stay in Coron I had the pleasure of having two dinners and a lunch at Buzz Express. One dinner a friend joined me (two very different tastes). As you arrive you choose your preference in seating: bar, rail (table) surrounds/overlooks street, outdoor seating and dinning (tables/chairs) seating. We were both very pleased with cleanliness, air conditioning, friendly service, a wide variety of menu selection and quality taste all within a reasonable budget.
Homemade sangria's were very good and nice alternative to beer, noting Buss's had full bar to satisfy most thirst. All bread/buns made fresh next door at Buzz's bakery. Great selection for fresh desert cakes (though we did not have) and very good selection of ice cream. I'd surely 100% recommend and will definitely return should I return to Coron. We might even grab a lunch there before we leave today!
