Strategic Planning: Magalawa Island

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger... Because I was soooo cranky at work and I literally cried almost every night about it, Aldrin thought of leaving the city and have our husband-and-wife strategic planning. Yes, planning. I already wanted to leave my work. And I wanted to go back in my home town, Cagayan de Oro City. Of course, this is not a simple thing to do. It's easy to say and decide that I'd go back, but the thought of moving and Aldrin leaving his job would not be easy. And so off we go to Zambales. Magalawa Island is a 6 hour bus ride from Manila. We left Victory Bus Terminal at 4:30am and arrived Palauig, Zambales at 9:30am. We asked the bus kundoktor to drop us off at Radyo Veritas Road. Once we were at that road, we asked a trycicle driver to bring us to the port for Magalawa Island. Trip costs us 150 pesos for a 30 minute off road challenge. Yikes! Then boat ride took us 10 minutes to reach the island.

Would I come back to this island? Yes but not anytime soon.

Magalawa Island seems to be a fantastic place. The seashore is white and wide. Wew! I love beach. Is there a hotel resort there?
