Hidden Paradise

Take me to paradise, to where my heart lies. A place so blissful, my mind peaceful. My soul, full.”

We all need a break! The hustle and bustle of every day life, the never ending worries, and even the boredom of being in the same place all the time drain and wear me out.

Fortunately, I know where to drown these burdens and sometimes the waves just wash them away. 😊

It was in 2017 when I first visited Hinugtan. We rode a boat from Boracay going there and I was excited the whole time.

Going to Hinugtan for the first time with some Lapu-Lapu divers of Boracay and their families.

Tranquility, bliss, and paradise! The words that came to my mind when I first set foot in Hinugtan.

This is definitely my favorite beach. Why? The sand is white, the place is quiet because there are no many people, and the lilies are pretty. 💗

The rain lilies are everywhere. PRETTY
No crowd, no noise.

I have no worries letting my 3 kids roam around. The place is safe and clean. There are many beautiful shells for them to pick up and scared small crabs for them to catch too!

They would also pour sand on each other’s head 😆 and run around as if they own the place. Kids and the beach, lovely combination.

As for Jb, he is always up for diving with his dive buddy Naldo. They always make sure that their dive gears and equipment are ready to use, stored back in Naldo’s place. Of course! The dive site is a must-see in the place as well.

I could stay here for a week or more! Jb can dive, the kids can swim and play in the sand, and me stress free 😌.

It is not a sin to escape reality for a while, is it? Ok, moving forward.

One of the best things that I like to do in Hinugtan is to get cozy in a hammock when I get tired and sleepy. The gentle breeze seems to whisper lullaby to my ears.

I just relax there for hours while staring at the blue sky. I watch the clouds drift by and listen to some insects make sounds that feel comforting to me.
