While Dolphin watching and sandbar have the volumes in Bais City Negros Oriental. Yesterday was going behind and beyond the usual destinations. It was an afternoon drive across Dewey Island and its 3 Brgys. The scenic stretch along Talabong Mangrove Forest of Capiñahan, the local sunday hangout of Lag It Beach in Okiot and the dramatic villages of Looc. Then we drove from easy to moderate uphill road to an unoccupied Bahia De Bais and ended up to its viewdeck and lighthouse.
I had to stop for hours as it has spectacular vista looking of the farmlands, the mountainside as its backdrop. The other side offers the vast Tañon Strait and the nearby province. The platform seems outdated with vandals, gaps and unfinished structures. Nevertheless, the distant Manjuyod Sandbar is as always a sight to behold, the neighboring Olympia Island and the usual Cannibol wharf. Surprisingly, time was extended as we explored other viewing areas equally offering a relaxing and peaceful sight.
