Travel snapshots: Volcanoes
A Virgin Paradise at the Heart of Philippines
MABUHAY, that’s the way on how we welcome visitors and with the seven continents which the world is made up of, with those continents, Asia is one of those that have given the beauty of nature or natural resources. An environment that has bounty of beautiful animals, mountains, landmarks and of course, beaches. At the heart of Asia specifically in Southeast Asia where my country is located, Philippines. Philippines that is known as the pearl of the orient because of its archipelagic geography that contains the 5th longest coastline in the world. With those beautiful beaches that are spread in the Philippines, my favorite beach where located on the region five of our country which is known as the Bicol Region.
On this region where located the Barangay Pag-Asa, Jose panganiban, Camarines Norte that is formerly known as Mambulao that means “bountiful in gold”. This is where I spent my childhood days where I enjoyed this beautiful Pag-Asa Beach. This beach is located at the side of the u-shaped seeshore. It has brownish but pure sand with clear salt water that comes from the mountain. Another is the beautiful rock formations that give the unique charm to that beach. What also makes this beach beautiful is because of the Bakawans there. This is a tree that lives on a watery place like rivers or sees. It has also composts of rich marine animals like fishes and also coral reefs. This beach is my favorite even if it’s not that white as Boracay Island of Aklan, and big than any other but because of its rich habitat for marine living things. A beach that is facing the Pacific Ocean with its characteristics that make me realize that it is truly a vigin paradise located at the heart of the Philippines a beach that gives us more wow and makes our country more fun and more than the usual.
