Beach just near the Metro: Our Tantalizing Tingloy Adventure! (Tingloy, Batangas)

Ship at Anilao Port

March 19-20, 2016.  It was a very youthful and nice weekend experience in the beautiful Island of Tingloy,  and overnight camping in their secret gem, the Masasa Beach.

          Touchdown Tingloy!

So glad that I have a college friend, Marinel who lives in the island, atleast we have a place to stay and for any emergency (in case there is a call of nature).Though I wanted to trek the mountain near the beach, the Mt. Mag-asawang Bato, my colleagues wanted to stay and enjoy the beach. That’s why i don’t have any choice but to just include it in my next adventure to the place.

(It was a little bit late in the afternoon when we went to the beach which is so strikingly hot! Kindly don’t forget your umbrella/cap/bandana…especially when walking to the crop field)

Since there is NO ELECTRICITY in the beach side, we had to cook our foods like the usual campers do and for the bonfire.
