So, How Beautiful Really is Subic Beach in Sorsogon, Philippines?

You won't believe that i drafted this post 6 years ago. This has been sitting on my blog post list the whole time. After clicking on it, i realized how amazing Subic Beach really is. Back then, i only use point and shoot, and the megapixel count isn't as high as the the one in my camera now. 


The trip to Subic Beach wasn't planned. I flew to Catarman in Northern Samar, eager to explore Biri. Unfortunately, the trip there pushed thru with mishaps. And up until now, i vow never to return again. A ferry ride away plus a smaller boat crossing San Bernardino Straight leads you to this island. 


Whenever people ask me about the most beautiful beach that i've been to, i always think Subic Beach is on top of my list. What makes this place extraordinarily beautiful is that the sand is indeed pink, because of crushed red corals. And the water, is divinely green. Top it all off, there's no soul in sight. 


Now i say, you really don't need a fancy camera nor superb photography knowledge or experience to take really good photos. Because what makes a good photo beautiful is subjective. I consider this particular photo beautiful because i shot this photo, and it was taken at the most beautiful time of the day.


Others may say that they know of more beautiful beaches. I cannot contest that. To each his own. But mine really is Subic Beach. 


The other side of the island is totally unspoilt. 


And the only structure you can find in there is a small hut where the caretaker lives. If there have been recent developments there, please let me know. 6 years ago, there was no electricity there, too.

That's my home for a few days; that red tent pitched with the help of my boatman. 


Apart from me, my boatman and the caretaker, this dog was the only other soul living on this island. 


You don't need to go too far to swim. Anywhere is always a good spot to swim in Subic Beach.
