Dicasalarin Cove

Aurora is around 6 hours drive from Metro Manila (Balintawak was our meeting place).
We went there via private van.
I've been here twice.

Part of our itinerary was to stay at Dicasalarin Cove which is owned by Senator Angara's family.
This is the top view site of the cove.

(Of course, there's me with my emo back shot)

This was taken from the view point.
Getting up here is no joke as it is a steep hill. This is both for vehicles and by foot.
Thank God, we always had the van.

They said this was a lighthouse.

I've been here twice.
My cheap but reliable dome type tent.


Inside my very spacious tent.


The boys always does the cooking.


We pitched tent near the beach.

This is a private beach so you won't see much people.
 I think the most I saw were just 3 people.


The said "lighthouse" was getting nearer.


We decided to explore.



So we walked further away from the beach.


Photo shoot on the rocks.



I call this "Scarves of the rocks"


Then we saw a trail. It was a lot of paved steps going up.


The view keeps getting better.


They warned me not to do this because the ground was soft and can loose anytime.
I tried to be careful but yeah . . . thinking about it . . . was a bit scary.

I saw another spot.


I just had to get the shot.


Good job on our friend Sir Andrew who has a fear of heights.
He was able to conquer it.


There!
The Lighthouse.
Up-close.
I am still not convinced that it is a lighthouse.


I decided to go up.
I was halfway when a friend said that I shouldn't so he went to explore it first . . . I guess for security reasons.
That's why you'll see me below him.

When made it, I decided to do it all the way.
I was almost there.
It was a nice feeling being up there because I love heights.
It was really windy up there.


As I was up on the said lighthouse, I took a photo of what's underneath me.

The group photo.


We headed down.
You can see the beautiful view of the cove.


We went to explore on the other area.


What we saw along the way.


A mini cave.


School of I-don't-know-what-it's-called fish.


At the mouth of the mini cave.


Photoshoot again on the rocks and the mini cave.


I tend to have this pose when I'm on the rocks he he he


Then it was time to head back. 
That's the beach with a different angle.

How did you arrange to go there?

Wow! Having the entire place all to yourselves...
I climbed an active volcano, but you climbed that lighthouse. I think that's far gutsier! :)

This is the first time I've heard of this place. Such a nice and quiet place to unwind. That lighthouse is such a unique one ha! :)

hahaha rainbow journal...na uh....i am still scared with an active volcano

Janice...a private beach is always the best :)

Wow. I'd like to try this thingy someday. To camp out and feel the nature haha. Great post. Amazing shots! :)

Ganda ng lugar. Bonus pa ang lighthouse challenge na inakyat mo. Ganda rin ng tent. Kung mapapayag ko laang na matulog ang misis sa ganyan (sigurado akong papayag ang anak ko), magtetent na laang kami, kesa maghotel. Hehe.

rommel, try it first on beach then go on a mountain.

Beautiful view. I am also wondering if it is really a lighthouse because it looks different from the normal lighthouse that i knew.

Very nice place. Is this already open for the public or do guests need to contact anyone for a visit?

When we went there they were turning the place I think to a resort. They were making huts.It should be done by now.

Hi Ann! Nice pictures, it was awesome! I have questions...how long is the one-way road and where can we get access to that cove? Thanks!

Hi Rex sorry for the late reply. Been sick. The one-way road is just a few meters only. We just talked to the security guard on the entrance.

Hi, ask lang kung meron lunch place sa Dicasalarin Cove? Thanks
