till next adventure girls!

And how should a beautiful, ignorant stream of water know it heads for an early release — out across the desert, running toward the Gulf, below sea level, to murmur its lullaby, and see the Imperial Valley rise out of burning sand with cotton blossoms, wheat, watermelons, roses, how should it know? ~Carl Sandburg, Good Morning America, 1928

Porto Market  ( you can buy anything in wet and dry market (complete meal), you have to bring as well water container for your own mineral water).

Take a trike going to Porto Proper (P50.00 per head)

Boat/Banka Ride one way going to Lusong Cove is P1,000.00 it depends to the bankero’s if it’s two way.  So if it’s two ways you can ask for a discounts. (Sorry we didn’t get the number of the bangkero).

If your now in Lusong Cove, there is two resort awaits for you there.  That time that we reach Lusong Cove both resorts are full and they’ve told us we cannot accommodate all of us.  So we decided to stay in one abandoned place which is in front as well in the beach.  But you have to be careful, if you pitch your own tent much better if you can fixed it near to your tent’s mates.  Why? because the last time one of our tents, the girls are screaming and calling us by names and telling there’s a thief.   Immediately the thief run away heading to the coconut trees until he fades away.  My friend said, she feels that there something in-front of her body and because she was sleeping she ignore it.  Until she fully wake up and saw the man (thief). All of us we go out from the tent and checked it one by one the tent if anything lost.  But thank god all of us are fine and safe except for this two girls.  They took the i-phone 4.  The contact numbers and some of her important PIN is in the phone.  We report immediately to the baranggay whats happen to us. And they said this is the second time. (sad to hear that).

This is the first time it happen and next time we are more alert and before we sleep we put our important things inside the bags.

So, if anyone wants to visit in Lusong Cove, choose the two resorts in that island for your safety.

    • Hi Ms. Perine, pasensya na at di kita kaagad na replayan .. matagal na po kasi akong di nakaka pag bukas ng aking blog. I’m sure nakapag Lusong na kayo. ;D

  1. I miss the Philippines. It looks like a beach with not much people. That is just a perfect day to spend Summer in the Philippines. And urgh! Fresh grilled fish by the beach is a just mwuah …. dreamy scenery and activities.
    How long is the ride?

    • From Monumento to Porto Mariveles It takes 3hrs .. then ride po ng tricycle about 15 mnts only. Last is Banka.. 30 mnts only!

      Perfect place if you really wanted to be alone and far away to the city.

      Budget is not much.. 2,000.00 pesos is enough for you Sir Rommel.

      This is a Rural Place, don’t expect to much po sa place. Very simple and very province po . 😊😊😊

      Thanks for ur time to read and visit my simple story. ☺☺
