One particular island I’ve visited recently was called Baluti. It is situated about 3 kilometers from the town port of Real. It is an island in the middle of an ocean near Pollillo Island and part of the Pacific Ocean.
Several parts of Baluti island are covered with pine trees and not with the usual coconut trees. The water is quite clear with fine gray sand. What I liked most about the island, though, is its great view of Sierra Madre, the longest mountain range in the Philippines.
This rainbow greeted me early in the morning after I woke up
I only learned about the place when I joined Plan B (Beachineering) Tours’ Year End Beach Party, a travel group spearheaded by a certain guy named Ronie Santiago. I only paid Php 1,500 which covered the transpo (van), food (dinner, breakfast, and lunch), drinks, and camping fee. I liked the idea of ending the year 2015 partying at the beach with some good booze and chill music.
I dare say that the experience I had was simply amazing. It was two-day weekend getaway really well spent. I met new friends who share the same passion as mine which is traveling. I learned and experienced new things like making cocktail drinks, flying a sky lantern, and mixing music like a real DJ. It was indeed a weekend filled with amazement.
They call themselves “Team Sephanx.” They were responsible for making the cocktail drinks
Figuring out how to make the sky lanterns fly!
Plan B Year End Beach Party: Drink till you drop. Kudos to Ronie Santiago.
The best route to take going to Real is through Rizal via Manila East Road up Laguna towns of Mabitac and Famy, where the roads to Infanta and Real can be found. It’s about 30 minute drive from Famy/Mabitac junction. To commute to Infanta, there’s Raymond Transportation Bus in EDSA, Cubao.
