Sampaguita Beach

Batangas, Philippines

Whenever I visited the Philippines, I would always visit its beaches. There was one particular beach located South of Luzon in Batangas, that was simple yet beautiful. They called this the Sampaguita Beach, with its letters painted on wood..something you would normally see in sari-sari stores, a term coined by Filipinos which referred to a small convenience store.

I will always remember the Nipa Huts (native houses constructed out of bamboo tied together wih a thatched roof using Nipa leaves), the long tables made of long bamboo trunks under it were you can eat or sleep on, and the clear waters. The place is ideal for snorkeling since corals are already visible just a few meters from the shore. When I go snorkeling, I wear protective diving boots since there are lots of sea urchins sitting on the corals.

Just like my other excursions in the Philippines, the end of the day would be spent just drinking and chilling with the gentle sounds of the ocean. I will always treasure Sampaguita Beach.
