We woke up early, walked along the black sand beach at the back of the hotel. It was nice. The water clear, the breeze was a bit warm but very pleasant. We rented a van to take us to Dakak Beach Resort. We were afraid to take the "single" motorbikes. There are several road widening construction.
In Dakak, we ate a fabulous and very filling breakfast. After which we spent hours on the water/beach. The bits and pieces of small trash was a bit of a drag. It was due to the Habagat, so the trash from the nearby areas are blown towards the cove. Hmmm, I wish they can do something about it. The sand is white but there are black sand combined with it, that's why it turned out to be a bit beige in color. The resort is nice and the staff accommodating. There were few tourists.
That afternoon, Ma'am Cinch and I ate a late lunch. She enjoyed her salad and I enjoyed my sizzling squid. That afternoon we also enjoyed our banana splits, took a short nap, then spent the whole night at the pool.The food in the hotel is really fantastic.
It was just a short weekend getaway but it is worth it.
3rd Day, Last day Early in the morning, we took our pics at the beach. Spent time again at the pool, then ate our heavy breakfast. We took the mini-bus to Dipolog City. We hunted for the great "pasalubong" but all we bought was there "Spanish sardines". It is a bit spicy and it tastes good though. We didn't have time to explore Dipolog, missed the Silinog and Aliguay Islands. Maybe on the next trip. It was just short weekend getaway but it is worth it.
Dapitan is a place where you can really relax. A place so laid back. The place isn't commercialized yet. Everything is fine as it is. No rush, no traffic, no pollution and everything's not so priced up. I will probably come back... soon.
