Ocular Inspection

Last Tuesday, I went to Calatagan and Nasugbu, Batangas with some of my officemates to check out the beaches for our summer outing. We went to Lago de Oro, Golden Sunset, Munting Buhangin and some beaches in Matabungkay. Our target for the summer outing is on March 24 kaya as early as now nag ocular na kami. Our boss does not want to go out on April since malapit na daw yon sa election.

I do that every year because they know how much I love the beach and parang by default my boss gave that to me as additional task. It was really fun but very tiring because we need to hop from one beach to another pero syempre ok din since I get to visit a lot of possible venues for family outing as well.

Among all the beaches we visited, the best option for me is Lago de Oro because of the amenities. They have a pool and you can go swimming at the beach and they also have cable ski where you can enjoy waterskiing or wakeboarding. Oh di ba! Kakaibang trip naman. Plus they have nice rooms and secured conference rooms where you can put your things if on day tour only.

The next would be munting buhangin because the sand is ok (it’s not white but it’s fine) and the water is clear and near the shoreline. Other beaches kasi, you need to walk far pa before you reach the area where the water is deep especially kung low tide and naisip ko, people might get lazy na to swim since parang ang layo mo na and yet di mo pa nararating yung malalim na area.

I’m quite disappointed with golden sunset. I thought kasi na aside from the pools, you can also go to the beach for swimming but it’s not like that pala. They only have swimming pools. Pero in fairness, they have nice facilities where you can really relax. They have Jacuzzis, Olympic size swimming pool with slide and waterfalls and they also have big kiddie pools. They also have a spa and you can also go fishing and they also have an area where you can play volleyball and an area for obstacle course. Sayang lang talaga yung beach is not ok for swimming. Ang naisip ko don, you travel that far (it’s like 2 hrs from Tagaytay Rotonda) tapos pool din lang naman yung pupuntahan mo, eh there are other resorts naman that are nice also and di pa ganon kalayo. La lang, naisip ko lang. hehe!

I’m not sure if we will also visit the beaches at the north, pero sana para makapasyal ulit, hehe. I still need to update the committee with our ocular inspection and then we’ll decide where we’ll have our summer outing.
