Bacong Beach-Maria,Siquijor

bacong1

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.

Lugnason Falls-San Juan,Siquijor

20150719_102637

This post is part of our tour in Siquijor together with a travel pal from Cebu and two locals.Our two companions should have been our guide to the falls but it turned out the opposite way as they were following us heading to the falls. 😀

Lugnason falls is situated to uphill area en route to Brgy. Napo in San Juan town. This waterfall is not much known in the province unlike the larger Cambugahay falls in Lazi so it is better to ask directions from the locals.

How to get there:

Coco Grove Resort should be your recognizable landmark. A paved way facing the opposite side of Coco groves entrance will be your starting point going to uphill area to Bgy.Napo. Travel time by motorbike is around ten minutes.

There are visible feature that stands out along the way letting you know if you’re in Brgy.Napo and eventually to Lugnason.

Vehicles may park at the entrance of the waterfalls then follow a path downhill to its location.

Lugnason is just a typical waterfall actually, the basin has a man-made swimming pool. If you’re into bathing then this might be a nice spot for you.
