Day Tour Experience:
Last weekend, our family had a chance to make a quick getaway to Allen, Northern Samar. This town has a beautiful coastline dotted with beaches, and one of them is the Caba Beach in Brgy. Cabacungan – a white sand beach.
The plan was to wake up early, prepare some food and go to the beach in the morning. We left the house at 6:30AM. After an hour we arrived in Allen proper, we drop by to their market to look for some chips and bottled drinks, additional food too. After that, we proceed to go to the beach.
We arrived at the beach at exactly 8AM. It was still early so we got a parking space easily. If you’re lucky you can get a free parking at the side of the road. But if not, there are rental parking space for Php60 day parking and Php150 for overnight parking.
We registered at the Brgy. Hall and paid Php10 each for the environmental fee. After that we head to the beach front and look for a cottage to rent.
We rented a cottage that cost Php350 for our whole day stay. Cottages are owned by the locals who live beachfront. It cost differently ranging from Php300 small cottages to Php1,000 for an up and down cottage. Tent rental is also available.
At The Beach:
Since it’s still sunny day in Samar, there’s a lot of people at the beach, but yas! we found a good spot where we can take photos before dipping into the water.
There’s a lot of things to do on this beach. Swimming, paddling, snorkeling, banana boat, sun-bathing and our favorite kayaking. ^_^ It cost Php100 for an hour rent.
Sew how clear the water is. We really did enjoy spending time on the water swimming.
It’s actually a good idea that we went swimming in the morning because at 11:00AM the sun is already up and it was so hot already. It was after 2:00 PM, when we decided to went back home. Cabacungan is definitely a great place for a quick getaway. We had a great time! We will definitely come back.
Just an advise, you can have a quick side-trip to see those beautiful rock formations in Imaga, Cabacungan.
