ALUBIHOD BEACH

When we arrived at Alubihod, the beach is more appealing to me. Waves are just right, not so big to scare away a non swimmer like me. The sand is fine and off-white, the beach area is not too crowded. It would have been perfect to spend the night here and take a swim in the morning and go island hopping. Ah, the sea is such a tease! I wanted to stay for another day or two to explore the other islands and islets but our flight was early morning the next day.

When our three–hour island hopping stint was over (that was all we could afford: island hopping for a group of less than 10 persons was Php 500 for the first hour and Php 150 for the succeeding hour) but have not had enough of the sea, we went for a swim at Alubihod Beach. The sand wasn’t very fine but the beach was clean. And even if the tide was out, we didn’t have to go very far for the water to reach our neck. Each of the resorts had some sort of net marking their beach territory. I wanted to swim in Alobijod Cove’s area where there were only a handful of people, but was afraid somebody would blow a whistle, fish me out by my neck, and transfer me to the center net where my cheap-ass self belonged.  Read More:  http://mustachioventures.blogspot.com/2015/07/raymen-beach-resort-alubihod-nueva-valencia-guimaras.html

Arriving at Alubihod, one of our worst fears was realized – or so we thought. It was a public beach alright with a good number of visitors basking in the water on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Perhaps after having gone to some of the best beaches in the country we weren’t expecting much from this beach but we were surprised upon encountering it in person. Despite the crowds the beach was immaculately clean and seemed to have maintained its pristine nature. Reddish smooth pebbles mixed in with fine, creamy white sand gave the beach a rust-colored, even pinkish hue, although not as pinkish as the one we saw in Matnog’s Subic Beach and Tikling Island. Visitors frolicked in the turquoise waters even as a moderate surf playfully pounded the beach front. Perimeter floaters, while somewhat distracting to photographers taking snapshots of the beach, served to keep swimmers, particularly children, from venturing too far out. It’s heartwarming to realize that, given the condition of the beaches today, the island seems to have recovered from the disastrous oil spill of 2006 when a tanker went down off the southern coast of Guimaras, spilling 500,000 liters of bunker oil far and wide.  Read More:  http://shoestringtravelers.com/?q=node/97
