The first Sandbar I’ve ever visited and I swear it was worth the trip! Took us 9 hours to get in the Maniwaya Island and almost 12 hours going back to Manila, but I didn’t mind at all. We all had fun with our DIY trip!

It feels like a dream to have visited the beautiful and magnificent Palad Sandbar. I was in awe all along. We visited the Sandbar on our first day at around 3PM, when the tide was still high. It’s amazing to see how the sandbar shows up slowly. There were a lot of boats and people that I didn’t appreciate it at all. It suddenly became crowded. Until we left for the rock formation.

When we’re about to head back to the resort, I noticed that there was only a boat left. Our bangkero, Kuya Leandro (not his real name), was thoughtful enough to ask if I wanted to go back while I was pointing my finger to the sandbar. Albeit a little at around 5PM, knowing that it was just 5mins boat ride away from our resort, I immediately said YES.

We finally arrived! One wouldn’t imagine my excitement. Although the sun has almost set, it was that time that I got to enjoy and appreciate the breath-taking Palad Sandbar!!! Read More:
