Having the largest beach shore in the island, Pansacola definitely has the best location.
Since they were fully booked the time we went there, we had to pitch a tent. The area was always clean and even though it was 'fully booked,' the place still wasn't crowded. Electricity is only available at night. Good thing, there's Globe signal. There were cooking stoves available for your using. You just have to bring your ingredients and equipment. There's also an option to get your food from the resort itself.
Overall, our stay was pleasant. Sun in the morning and in the afternoon wasn't that harsh and nights were windy.
By the way, if you want to stay in the kubos and not in tents, better book in advance. It's quite hard to contact the resort.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located by the quaint little town of Mauban, Quezon Province about 3-4 hours drive from Manila, beach lovers get to enjoy a 45-minute bangka ride to get to Pansacola Beach Resort in Cagbalete. For accommodations, nipa huts with lofts are available to give you the experience of "roughing it"-you'd be surprised at how the evening sea breeze beats your usual air conditioners at home. With the staple of five meals per day, you will surely get more than you bargained for when it comes to food. At low tide, the clear blue water is transformed into a massive expanse of sand, perfect for games with your friends. At night, be amazed at the wide blanket of stars on the clear sky. ... more less
