The first time that I went to Long Beach in San Vicente, Palawan I did not know what the name of the beach was called neither did I know that it was the longest beach here in the Philippines. The part of Long Beach that I first went to was in Alimanguan. A town at the northern side of San Vicente, Palawan which was formerly famous for its many crabs or in tagalog alimango.
We went there, the children swam in the waters while us young at heart went fishing on the shore with the use of a lambat, just like the pukot in Baler, Aurora but on a smaller scale. Then we got back to a friend’s house and ate grilled fish and kinilaw. The day ended with me having a full stomach and new friends. The second time was just last week and was only a short visit at the middle of Long Beach. We rode a motorcycle going to the middle of Long Beach which took us 20 minutes. Though Long Beach boasts of white sand, when we went there it was more colored like dirty white sand.

What I like about Long Beach is that it has fine sands that it becomes compact and according to Val the sand was as fine same as the sands of Boracay. (Have not been to Boracay yet.) Maybe, that’s the reason why the locals call it ‘the next Boracay’.
