A summer paradise in Zambales.

Summer has officially started and what better way to enjoy summer than spending it outdoors. It is the time of the year when you’re supposed to turn off your air condition and start thinking about getting the most out of the sunny weather.

But you don’t need to be in Baguio or Boracay to relish the beauty of a summer paradise. There are summer haven just a couple of hours drive from Metro Manila that offers a lot of island and highland attractions but without much commercialism and hundreds of tourists swarming.

Just before the end of February, our team went to a hidden paradise in Zambales. The resort is called La Trinidad Bay and it is a good 5 hours drive from Quezon City.

From the resort, we took on an island hopping session in Potipot island where we feast our eyes on the pristine beauty of the Island. Its white sand beach is easily accessible from the shores of the resort we were staying. It took us about 5 to 10 minutes boat ride before we reached the island that boasts of not only white sands that surrounds the whole island, but also its calm clear waters and lush trees that gave shades along the beach.

This is certainly one place that I am planning to revisit in the coming years.
