Just what I’ve mentioned on my Mövenpick review post here, I’m really a fan of their Ibiza net lounges so I took advantage that there’s no one in the area and had my OOTD pics taken! :)
my favorite part of Mövenpick was the lounge chair facing the beach!
closer look of what I wore..
The SM Store top | Forever 21 skirt | Havaianas slippers | Sunnies eyewear
This is what I wore on our last day at the hotel.
On my top, would you believe I scored this top for only P99 pesos? I found it in SM Dept Store! There are really hidden treasures in our local department stores!
My skirt would be the highlight of this #OOTD post as it’s also a favorite! It has the softest fabric! I wouldn’t mind wearing maxi skirt even if it’s so hot here in Metro as long as it has the same fabric with this!
What do you think of my outfit?

Cagbalete Island Getaway (Part 2)
Here’s the second part of my Cagbalete travel diary, if you were able to read my previous post, if not here is our Cagbalete Island Getaway (1st day).
We stayed overnight at Nilandingan Cove and it was just so superb to have witnessed how the sun rises wonderfully.
An island getaway won’t be complete if you’ll not take a tour and explore, if not the whole island at least some part of it that’s worth visiting.
So we hired 2 boats to accommodate our group (17pax) and asked the bangkeros to tour us around for P2, 000 roundtrip that’s for 2boats already.
I know that it’ll be another squirming moment to go in a boat thinking it’s the Pacific Ocean haha!
It took us 1-½ hours to reach our first destination, as the bangkeros would call it “White Sand Island” It’s a perfect “go-for-a-dip” venue if you’re afraid of deep blue sea because water here is shallow and swimmable.
The view when I was about to go down the water was so picturesque from the mountain ranges to the mangroves. All were breathtakingly beautiful. Indeed, #ItsMoreFunInThePhilippines!
You can view that there were no houses near the shores or camper’s tents just like the usual scenery on the other side of Cagbalete because according to the boatman, houses built before were just washed away by the current during high tide so they never build again.
Few people were already enjoying the water by the time we went there at around 7AM.
Here’s a group-shot for you all :)
For our next destination, the boatman brought us to their barrio or the Sentro. If you’ll take the passenger boat, say you’ll come from Mauban port, here is where your drop off area. I appreciated that our boatman wanted us to see the people of the island and took us to where they live.
Beautiful, isn’t it?
We were able to have halo-halo break at the Sentro from a simple store who also owns the boats we rented.
We chatted with ate (halo-halo seller) and asked about their barrio and she suggested us more places to visit like the Bonsai, Baliscar Island & Lighthouse, Pansacola. Unfortunately we cannot go to all she mentioned because of time constraint. We need to go back to Nilandingan before 5PM.
But we cannot passed the chance to swim in Pansacola. It’s a must before the water dries up because of lowtide.
Pansacola panoramic view! Whew! Gandang di mo inakala.
We spent our remaining time swimming in Pansacola. We left the place as soon as we saw a lot of sea urchins haha! Chos!
As much as we want to stay longer in the island we can’t because we have to go to work the next day.
- Budget per head for this trip in our case P1,500 (group of 15pax+2drivers)
- Includes: roundtrip Car expenses, tolls, food, roundtrip boat transfers, lodging fee.
- Best to travel in a group to save more on probable expenses.
Overall, exploring the beauty of Cagbalete was one of the amazing adventures I’ll keep in mind forever! It’s a recommended place when looking for a peaceful place to relax and unwind.
Until next time, Cagbalete Island! :)
