Being adventurers that we are, we think of getting away from the stressful workload and have a perfect vacation for us. And so it's decided that we need to have a vacation somewhere outside the metropolis, with white sand beach, crispy blue waters, tall trees in a secluded place hundred miles away from the city. No internet, no cellphone lines, no crazy work and no crazy boss (lol!) it'll be a perfect travel destination for all of us who wants to destress and be with nature again.
Me and other lunch mate Oshi searched for possible travel spots that has the things that we are searching for. We checked on blogs, travel sites and we saw this blog about the lovely Potipot island situated in Iba, Zambales. A close friend of mine who already went there told me how pristine and secluded the island is, and she even told me that I need to check the eye-catching sunset view at the other side of the island. I told my lunch mates about this and we decided that we are coming to see Potipot in the next few days!
The next thing that we did is to scout for travel establishments that offer discounts by bulk. We were 7 of us and this overnight travel deal to Potipot island from Metrodeal is the best thing for us! I discussed this deal with my lunch buddies, agreed to have a group purchase and availed on the discount voucher on Metrodeal.
So we availed on the vouchers, fixed our schedule and we're off to Zambales. We out of Makati at around 7 in the morning and we arrived at around 12 in the afternoon. As we arrived to Dawal beach resort, we waited for the boat ride going to the island. And as the boat arrived going our destination, I was amazed as we make our way to the island.
Looking at Potipot is a love at first sight. Never did I thought that it'll be a secluded version of Boracay. Pristine clear waters, powdery white sand beach, trees at the middle part of the island and I can see live starfishes and fishes nearby! It was |refreshing and all we did while we were there was to have chill out and own the whole beach. And as the sun sets we went to the far end of the island. I was teary-eyed as I cant help myself to fall for the beauty of the island untouched by people. It was indeed gorgeous.
Since we also availed on the food add-ons posted on the Metrodeal discount voucher, we can't help but to devour the huge dinner in front of us. After the hearty feast we set up our tents and we stargaze before we go to sleep.
It was a relaxing sleep on our tent under the stars and I woke up just before the sun rises. I went out on a run (on barefoot) around the island and I cant help but to love the island's beauty. The island was indeed small, but it's a remarkable treasure island tucked away from the busy metropolis. As my friends woke up we decided to make a quick swim while we are waiting for our yummy breakfast to arrive.
We love it here! And I swear that I will definitely come back for Potipot again! Metrodeal has been a great friend to me for offering this amazingly budget-friendly deal to us, thanks again!
