“I do not know” Beach
I shall call this beach “I do not know” Beach since I do not know its name. I’ve tried asking around the people there what the beach is called but they do not know also.
To get there, do not follow the sign post above. After the sign post we saw a rotonda of the US Naval Supply Depot but Tito Ruby insisted to the tricycle driver that we should go left. The tricycle driver also did not know that there was an awesome beach 100 meters away from the rotonda. That’s how we ended in this amazing beach.
If you happen to know the name of the beach please do tell me as I am really curious.
After following the right direction we saw this long stretch of beach between 2 resorts. I just knew the name of this beach last night while I was browsing through the brochure of The Surf Camp Resort that I got when I was there. ABCD Beach is the place where waves become strong thus making it conducive to surfing.
“I do not know” Cove
On our way on the rough road going to ABCD Beach from “I do not know” Beach I saw this slice of small cove. I told my Tito that when we were on our way back we should stop there.
The place was not cleaned and there were coconut shells and wild plants all over. But that’s what I love about the place. A nice white beach that is very much closer to nature.
Just like “I do not know” Beach, I also do not know the name of this beach. There were no houses nearby nor a people going around. Please tell me if you know the name of this beach as I am also curious.
How did we get there
We rented a tricycle in Guiuan Transport Terminal for 350 Pesos for a fast trip around Guiuan Airport, Dumpao Beach and Calicoan Island which took us 3 hours. Initially the tricycle driver offered us 500 Pesos for the whole trip, but my uncle and his super bargaining abilities got it down to 350 Pesos. I gave the tricycle driver 50 Pesos tip since he really did a good job touring us.
How to get there
Ride a multicab going to Sulangan from Guiuan Transport Terminal. The multicab will be passing by the rotonda and the last 2 beaches. Fare is 30 Pesos/person. Travel Time is 30-45 minutes.
Since the distance of the 3 beaches from each other are quite far and the frequency of the multicabs leaving the Transport Terminal are quite far apart. It is advisable that you rent a tricycle going there. I only went there for pictures so I did not spend much time on these places that’s the reason we got the tricycle with such a low price.
According to the multicab driver that I talked to, you can have the multicab take you to Calicoan Island and he will just be going back to pick you up on your desired time. The cost of these arrangements is 700 Pesos.
Since the beaches are not manned and the waves are strong, do not swim without a partner. There are no lifeguards in the area.
