Boracay - Mount Luho Road
MARCH 2016: Why not read our Philippines Retirement Reviews. INTRODUCTION: I was staying on White Beach Station 3 in Boracay Island for 5 weeks. I wanted to see the rest of the island to see what else it had to offer… BY FOOT: The cost of a scooter in Boracay is a ridiculous PHP2000 / day. You can take Tribikes to different places at PHP10 / kilometre (shared) or look to charter a Tribike for a day (which wouldn’t be cheap). Boracay Island is only 10 square kilometres. So, I decided to walk it over 3 days: The South, The East, and The North. […]

Tablas - Aglicay - Resort From Southern Hilltoop
FEBRUARY 2016: INTRODUCTION: I was staying at the AGLICAY BEACH RESORT on Tablas Island. I was impressed by what I had found. The Aglicay was the best value for money accommodation that I had found in my 5 weeks in The Philippines so far. The room was a good size and clean; so was the ensuite. It had a lovely beach setting. However, when you use online search engines, there are very few Hotels listed for Tablas Island (less than 10). I wanted to know whether or not there were more such places around the island that were not on the internet… did […]

Puerto Princesa - 16 - 3rd Beach South
JANUARY 2016: INTRODUCTION: I was staying in Puerto Princesa and one of the top 2 things that are recommended online is a trip to Honda Bay; so I decided to jump on my scooter and go and have a look up the east coast. I was hoping to find something similar to what I found when I went from Padang Bai to Amed By Scooter back in Indonesia… beautiful scenery with picturesque sandy bays and little fishing villages… I planned to do a 150km round trip. I set off at 10:00am and stopped at the start of the North Road just after […]
