From the stunning white sand beaches of Caramoan in Camarines Sur, Tikling Island in Sorsogon and Burias Island in Masbate; Bicol, my hometown has another island to be proud of. Calaguas in Camarines Norte is another beach paradise that will inspire you to go out on a sunny day to reward yourself of a refreshing getaway you will surely enjoy. I thank my friend Sam Casuncad for showing me his picture of the island where I was awe-stricken by its beauty. I vowed myself; I will visit this soon. Now, I am on my way for an exciting beach escapade in this pristine island.
A lovely sunny day and glistening water are what we need after a busy month of filing ITRs (Income Tax Returns). It’s time now to rejuvenate our bodies and freshen up our minds from tons of paper works. We wanted to bask on a beach resort with swimming pool. To save time from a long trip we chose Laiya Coco Grove Resort in Laiya, Batangas which is three-hour away from Manila. After considering the distance and the expenses, we now set off to Finance’s 2017 summer getaway!
I’ve heard about Burot Beach, formerly Elizalde Beach (owned by an affluent family, the Elizaldes) way back 2008 when my former office mates spent a summer get away here. I was in another occasion so I missed a generous amount of opportunity spending a quiet weekend getaway in a place, devoid of crowd and to where sunset offers an obstructed view of a breathtaking sea.
