We hike our way down to San Carlos Pier and jump in a pump-boat going to Sipaway Island. The journey to Sipaway was quick, bought me some time to chitchat with the person next to me. When I planted my first step on the island, I already had a brief knowledge about it. Thanks to the local who I talked to on the pump-boat.
We hire a trike to tour us around the island. Lucky for us we hired the most accommodating trike driver in Sipaway–Mang Danny. He brought us to the cheapest Resort in the island— Basilia White Beach Resort. We paid 20PhP for the entrance fee. We’re the only group wandering around the resort that day. May be because it was weekdays. Well, we had a great time enjoying the quite beach. As expected, they have a magnificent beach. White sand and clear water is just perfect.
The resort has various cottages to chose from. This one is the cheapest cottage they have, which is at 250PhP. This cottage is good for 4-6 person. The style is so cute.
They also have this bigger open cottages for 300PhP. This cottage can accommodate 10-15 person.
This house is also available for rent. At 600PhP you can have this house overnight with 4 beds, your own toilet, grilling area, and a dish washing area.
When its time to go home, our tour guide bring us to the biggest Balete tree in Sipaway, before sending us back to the pier. This tree is situated in front of a public school. We had a funny experience though when we were there. We mount our camera in a tripod and set in a timer mode so that we could take photos of ourselves. Suddenly, children having their break from their class, circled around the camera. They were curious of it. I would love to take photos with them, but when I get my camera and ask them to have photos with us, they started to back away.
