Looking at the vicinity too, there are a lot of spaces next to the resort to setup a camp. We walked away and I asked to group to wait as I look for better (cheaper) alternatives.
I walked all the way back to the community til I reached a charcoal facility. I asked if we can just walk in to what seemed a restricted property, and the lady I asked said it's perfectly fine.
Meantime, There were some men up in the coconut trees, and thinking that all they'll be needing are the husks, i thought about asking for fresh coconut juice. I called the group and the farmers dropped countless coconuts; Then again, we could only finish 4 each.
Coming all the way from manila, and I have not had any sleep yet, after some few pictures, we all fell to our subconscious. After around 2 hours, we woke up and went to our planned (turned crap) photo ops.
Although we planned on spending overnight in the beach, we thought it was enough that we've spent a few hours on it. I asked the group about what they thought, and gladly, they thought the same.
This trip is part of my 13 day Southern Mindanao Trip. I posted a few details of my schedule and expenses here
