Cancuaay Private Beach Resort; A Quick Dip!

8:22 AM

Relaxing at the hammock while hearing the snoozy sea lap gently!

Sun, water, salty, waves, chilling, love, beach hair, sandy toes, tan skin, fun, sand and relax…We all love a deep blue sea! 🌊

Summer is here! I know that you've been planning to escape from the busy, noisy life at the city or even trying to avoid the heavy traffic and polluted air! Well, if you haven't planned your vacay yet, Cancuaay Private Beach Resort is a must to visit! 

The place itself speaks the beauty of nature and it's a stress free zone! Aside from the beauty it offers, it is also very inexpensive. For just a 100 php entrance fee you can enjoy the life you've never imagined and be delighted by the view.
After our exploit to Aguinid Falls, me and my friends head straight to Cancuaay (which is 45 minutes away from Aguinid) to have our lunch, but sadly they don't offer food there and to our surprised the girl told us that they can buy us food provided that we will give a 100 php (bribe). We ended up ordering pizza!  Tip:  You're allowed to bring your own food or have it grilled there and there’s no corkage. 

What caught our attention was the laid-back style of architecture of the cottages and the different rock formations. Aside from the rocks is the hammock placed at the beach. It’s the best place to unwind after a busy tiring week. We’re just unlucky because the time of our visit the waves are very high and the sea was buzzing with its dynamic strength. The waves didn’t hinder our excitement to go swimming even though we’re very tired. 

I can't find the words how beautiful that side trip was, amusing and haunting all at once. 

Below are the pictures that will showcase the beauty of the beach.

You will be delighted by the view after the 175 steps
