A go to beach escapade for me, is what Liwliwa, Zambales is. And though beach bumming is a great idea, I have shared here below a list of quick activities you may also do while staying in Liw-liwa.
QUICK ACTIVITIES TO DO :
There are stores and instructors available in Liw-liwa for Php400 pesos ; this is inclusive of the rental of the surf board for 1 hour and the instructor to teach you the basics of Surfing.
However, not all the time the beach is conducive for surfing as it always and would still depend on the beach waves for a particular time and season.
You may also do and learn how to skim, it is somehow similar with the surfing but it uses a smaller and lighter board. Which is interesting.
Also, you don’t need the big waves across the beach but would rather stay just right near the shoreline.
The hostel were staying actually is offering Island Hopping Services, but the islands it covers is basically (Capones and Anawangin – and this could be spent on another beach getaway)
You may spend the entire day for an island hopping experience and explore other nearby islands around.
Liw-liwa does not have that crystal brown to white sand beaches, but rather a greyish sand is what you can see. However, the beach area is pretty much clean and you’ll enjoy soaking in the beach as well 😊
they say, to watch more sunsets than netflix — and the Sunsets in Liwliwa is definitely worth watching for. Enjoy how serene and beautiful it could be as you gaze thru the sun and the sky.
CHASING WATERFALLS – Lubong Nangoloan Falls
Initially didn’t thought that there was a waterfalls available near Liw-liwa; We booked for a tricycle ride thru : for Php 500 pesos for the entire afternoon service.
reaching the Falls it took us 30 – 45minutes tricycle ride. There is a quick trekking all the way to the top of the waterfalls for around 15 – 20 minutes. You may swim in these fresh water and enjoy the day!
Entrance Fee : Php 30 pesos per person
RIDE A CARABAO
Going to the Falls, you have the option to walk all towards the falls or you may also ride thru a carabao 😊 and since it was our first time, definitely go for the latter option.
Carabao Ride Fare is Php 20 pesos per person
It was a great discovery seeing the waterfalls, we hiked for 10 – 15 minutes with the rock formations and it was great.
READ A BOOK
it feels good having to spend your time in the beach over the sunset and over the sound of the waves
this is actually a best time to read a book at the same time — if you visit over the weekdays; I tell you, this place is much much more calmer as well
At the end of the day, your activity for the entire day depends on what type of weekends or vacation you are looking for, moreover, if you are thinking about the budget for your activities that would determine your activities as well for your trip.
I wish you got some insights and ideas from this and let me know how you find Liwliwa as well.
