Polillo Islands

Polillo Islands, as I may say is really far from Metro Manila. It's a 4 hour Bus or Van ride and almost 3 hours of boat ride coming from Real Port to Polilio Island. We were informed by our host that electricity is only available from 2pm to 6am.

Even if its tiring, I had an amazing weekend getaway with some Pexers and friends.

Here is our Trip Itinerary:

0300 ETD Manila (Raymond Bus Terminal, Legarda)
0700 ETA Real port, ETD Real port
1000 ETA Port of Polilio to house (Brgy. Fatima)
1100 LUNCH
1200 Snorkeling then go straight to Bocao Beach
1800 Wash-up
1900 DINNER/Socials
2200 Sleeping time

Bocao Beach

This is the place where we camped out, ate dinner (budol-budol style), set up our bonfire and drink a lot of vodka and brandy! We first introduced ourselves and how we joined the group. After getting to know each other stage, few personal questions were asked.

Okay, everyone agreed, "what happens in Polillo stays in Polillo."

After drinking, lights out! Actually, flashlights out!
Too bad, it rained, I'm not sure if its heavy but I know my arms were wet while sleeping.

good morning!!

We woke up around 5:30 am, ate breakfast, few dips and photo ops, took our lunch, then we headed back to Manila.

My all in expenses = 1400 pesos, including a Polillo Island shirt! :)

Thanks to our hosts Sir Rowell and Barbs!!
