It was high tide when I visited Kagusuan beach for the third time, thus some seaweeds were carried along the shore but still one of the gorgeous beach I’ve seen in the island. There were few fishermen at the end of the beach preparing for a catch. One of the fisherman approach me while I was taking photos, as we were talking, he recommended another lovely beach in their area which he says a much longer drive.
They call it Bacong beach, located in the same town en route to Brgy.Liloan. Bewildered of how it looks like, I shall allow my intuition to guide me today as I felt an exhilaration of a hidden paradise. The wind blows wherever it wishes, the trees where swaying of its direction, then we were lead to a dense forest. On a sunny drive at noon, it was so nice to have abundant tall shade trees canopies our way through Liloan forest, some bare roots of aged trees had crept over the track amidst the woodland covered with dried fallen leaves.
The beach and the forest are bordered by a vertical cliff and of surrounding vegetation. The end of the cliff serves as a parking space for visitors where I left mine and some other four motorbikes. Standing on top of the cliff, my eyes were met with the vast ocean. Upon hearing the sea waves, instantly I went down to the bottom.
In a few distance, I saw some local fishermen gathered around the coast, some were hoovering their meal while others are preparing their fishing boat, at the end of the stretch are teenagers reveled the clear waters of the area.
The lovely beach is completely virgin, both ends of the stretch have spectacular rock formations, waters are magnificently clear were it was irresistibly I took a dip, though I didn’t went that far, colorful fishes are visible near the coast. The beach face and the wrack line consist mainly on coral rocks and stone deposits while white sands stay at the berm section.
This is one of the many virgin beaches in the province you shouldn’t miss too, start planning your tropical getaway now, pack your picnic and head off to discover the untouched beauty of Maria town, get off-the-beaten track and enjoy a tranquil experience in Bacong beach.
