Travel time is around 1 hour.

We rent a motorcycle for Php 300. At first they will offer you Php 350 but we haggle it.
Some backpackers even rent it for just Php 250. (So haggle all you can :P)

We took our breakfast at Tori’s backpackers. I highly suggest that you get there egg + ham and rice for only Php 70

For much cheaper option (you can take a carinderia or joel eatery for as low as Php 50)

Cliff dive at their 2 boards or slide (which is under maintenance when we get there)

My “I am freaking afraid to pose on the edge of the cliff board. PS: It’s freaking windy on that time of the day. Feels like you can get push by the wind” PS: Sorry ang lapad ko! HAHA! #NoShame

The Boyfriend is YOLO-ing even if the sea is very rough. For Me it’s a No-No Moment. Not today.

We spend around an hour before we go back to the port. Ate our lunch at Joel Chicken Eatery besides the Church near the port.
