Coron Island: Atwayan Beach


After spending the whole morning at Kayangan Lake and snorkeling at the nearby coral garden, it was time for lunch.  We dropped anchor at this strip of white sandy beach called Atwayan.  The cove is nestled in the wall of sky-scrapping rocks.


It was a cloudy, drizzly day but I was dazzled by the clear turquoise water and white sand.  The rustic hut at the corner caught my attention.  It was a perfect place to enjoy the serenity and simplicity of this secluded beach.

The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.

I love how this tree, rooted in rock, with its gnarled trunk and branches, extends over the beach.  This is my favorite spot in Atwayan.


Atwayan cove is being protected by the Tagbanua as part of their ancestral domain.


P.S.  I'll be very busy this week, and may not be able to visit you back right away.  Will catch up later. :)
