New Year's Day holiday
It was one early sunny morning when we decided to travel to the south and go on a road trip. It took us an hour and a half to Kabankalan where we had breakfast.
The next few hours was a fun road trip to Sipalay, taking pictures along the way like the picturesque Sohoton point in Cauayan. We were just in time for lunch when we dropped by Jamont Hotel and bought some goodies at a convenient store and fresh fish at the market. This time we went further to Brgy. 4 at Punta Ballo where Nataasan Resort, Artistic Dive, Robinson Cruse and Easy Dive Resorts are, but they had fully-booked accommodation.
We found a two-bedroom family accommodation at Megan, a DOT-accredited pension by the beach of Punta Ballo. All you have to do is just drive straight to the end along the road where the resorts are, then turn right, pay the entrance fee of P50 per adult or P20 for kids seven years and below, there are other pension houses there like Joy and Jay Beach House and Tylers. This is where big families go where they can cook and go on a ‘budget' holiday enjoying the same white sand beach. Air-conditioned rooms are available, depending on the number of beds and the size of the room.
This is our first time to celebrate New Year's Eve at the beach, where fireworks display by some resorts entertained guests and residents in the area. Artistic Dive had a buffet dinner by the beach, there was dancing all night and like any other new year's celebration, people around are in a festive mood, kids playing with firecrackers, while most of us blowing the horn, perhaps the kids are taller they stopped jumping this time.
There are motorized boats where a group of ten to fifteen can go on a boat ride for P1,500. On new year's day, we walked along the beach, met the women of the barangay with their plastic bags filled with garbage, they told us that this was their project which started that day.
We had coffee at Artistic dive, breakfast is affordable. With water rising in mid morning we were able to take a dip in the cool waters of Punta Ballo. We opted to relax at Jamont hotel's restaurant for lunch, with a better view of the beachfront at the Poblacion, it was indeed filled up with residents camping and enjoying the beach under the sun.
