Cute and Dainty Travels to Bagac, Bataan!

I made a very quick decision to travel to Bataan last Independence Day. Jaycee was already there because he was one of the security during the APEC Summit and it was his free time in the morning of the 12th. He texted me saying he can't come home and since it was a holiday and my free day as well, he invited me to go there and I decided to travel by myself to meet him. Our agenda was just purely a joyride! 


I left home at 10:30 am and arrived at 12:30 at noontime. I had a long time in waiting jeepney and bus. Since I just reside at Pampanga, it's very near Bataan so it was just a bus away from the main city. I rode a bus with Mariveles, Bataan signage and alighted at Alauli. Then Jaycee picked me up there and we started touring the place with a motorcycle. Yeah, he actually brought his motorcycle at Bataan during his service at the APEC Summit. 


I took a shot of the place while riding the motorcycle and I adore all the green scenery. In Pampanga, I only see few greens now when they started cutting off the tress along McArthur Highway. I hate what they did to the province where I grew.

Then I first saw the cross at Mt. Samat and my nerves started to get excited. I asked Jaycee to drive me at Mt. Samat but it's so unfortunate of all days that it was close because the APEC delegates were there and the security decided to close it. We then decided to just head at the beach. 


Off we go at the beach and when I saw the glimpse of the waters from above, I felt disappointed of not bringing clothes. Our main agenda was just to ride the motorcycle and visit places. I didn't expect to see a beautiful beach nearby. So we went down and experienced the waters for a bit! 


And when we were at the bottom, I just can't help myself but appreciate the beauty of the greens and the water and since it's around noon time, there were almost no people at the beach. It was strikingly hot but that didn't stop us to walk around. 


I actually want to experience the coldness of water and it was so great so I chose to remove my shoes and enjoyed the water.  Despite not having extra clothes, I still let myself enjoy the moment. 



There's a hut in the area and we used it for some shade. The weather was so hot, yet the water was cold at the same time. If we were just there around late in the afternoon, I guess I'll have a difficult time of deciding not to dive in. 

Jaycee just enjoying the view! 


I believe Bataan has more beautiful and bluer water than Subic. It was actually great to explore the place since it was just near Pampanga and it's easily accessible to visit anytime. We actually already planned our next visit but we're planning to stay longer to enjoy the view and the moment! :) 







We just parked the motorcycle in the nearby resort but chose not to check in since we don't have any belongings but our self. We simply enjoy the time we had together. Travel is really best when shared with your loved ones. Wishing more travels with this guy soon! For the record, this is our first beach trip together so I really enjoyed the experience despite not being able to swim! :)

We both didn't had lunch so after 30 minutes of staying at the beach, we decided to have a quick meal before he send me off. His work starts at 7pm and I want him to rest for a few hours before his duty. We had our meal from Chocolate de Batirol back at Alauli where I alighted. I blogged on the food we had here

I so enjoyed the whole experience! My bus ride was P107 going to Alauli and another P107 back. I spent less than P300 going to Bataan and enjoying it's wonderful scenery. I wish to be back sooner and stay there longer! :) 

Have you been at Bataan? Send me your Bataan experiences and share me some tips. 
More trips soon! XOXO ♥

  10. We have been in Bataan once for our company outing. We didn't enjoy that much kasi almost June na yun and the weather is not good as well. Ang lalaki pa ng alon. Matthew was just 11 months then and he was afraid with the sound of the waves.
