Mabua Pebble Beach News
This was such a beautiful and inspiring day of adventure across Northern Mindanao...
I left Cagayan de Oro early in the morning and headed up over the mountains driving my scooter on a road trip east. Passing through Claveria, I found myself caught in a rainstorm. From there I found myself exploring the 4th largest lake in the Philippines. At the lake I met an amazing Filipino farmer who not only became my friend, but also inspired me with his attitude and story about beating cancer!
This was an inspiring road trip to Surigao City from Cagayan de Oro!
Few days before my trip to this province, I was looking for something to read about Surigao del Norte tourist spots and a dedicated Surigao del Norte travel blog but I found so little. Now that I am back in Manila it is time to give back by sharing to you my suggestions on what to see and where to go in Surigao del Norte. Not to be confused by the famous Siargao island (also part of this province by jurisdiction), Surigao del Norte deserves a recognition of its own.
Ever since I have been assigned back to the mine site two months ago, instead of just staying at the staff house on Sundays I try to explore places in Surigao City. Last month, I together with two workmates Salee and Jill explored the pebble beaches and water village of Surigao City. For this post, I will only talk about our trip to the pebble beach. Details of our visit to the water village to follow.
Hey, fellow life-forms! Yesterday we went to a known beach here in Surigao City, Surigao del Norte called the Mabua Pebble Beach. Unlike any other beaches in the Philippines, Mabua is founded with rocks that altogether look like a sea of pebbles. It may sound crazy to some since we're used to sand beaches but to try new stuff may lead to awesome discoveries.
Make sure that you listen to this with your earphones on so you can listen to it better.
In Day 2 of my Surigao escapade, I visited some of the islands under Surigao City. The first one was Hikdop Island which had two popular tourist destinations. The first one is the Buenavista Cave and the second one is the Pagkawasan Beach. After our adventures at Hikdop Island, our Suroy sa Surigao tour took us to Basul Island before going back to the mainland.
Suroy sa Surigao Day 2
I was really excited for Day 2 of the Suroy sa Surigao because it involved island-hopping which is my favorite things to do every summer. I woke up early and had an early breakfast at Le Chard Place Bed and ...
The city government through its Tourism Office is all set for the 4th Mindanao Dragon Boat Race, a paddle for peace contest, on Sunday, May 21, in Barangay Mabua.
"This is the first time that the city will host such event," city tourism officer Roselyn B. Merlin said.
City Mayor Ernesto T. Matugas expressed full support to the race hoping to make it an international event like surfing and game-fishing in Siargao Island.
Merlin said the Surigao Dragon Boat Challenge 2017 is expected to draw nine dragon boat teams from all over Mindanao, and will be joined by the homegrown team Bugsay M ...
