I was really dying for swimming in a blue, crystal clear water and white sand beach. I never had a chance to experience it where we currently live. The beaches here at our home have brown sand, and the water is not clean at all, it's a little bit dirty which can be manifested through the color of the water.

When the opportunity knocks in, when my husband and I decided to go to the countryside and visit my relatives and we went to the beach which is like 1 hour ride from where we stayed in the countryside. It is really unexpected that there is this paradise hidden in such green place full of crops like sugarcane and corn. The fields are well-planted with such crops.

So went over there and saw a beach with white sand and my godmother instructed to go to that certain spot between two different resorts which is a public beach meaning it's for free. We parked there and bring along our food and lay them all on the white sand. Bot my husband and I run off and swim right away. I was skeptical and want to know if such beach is really white sand and not just a whole field of white sand dropped over brown sand beach. So I grab the sand beneath the water and when I open my hands, it was really white sand and even dug up some sand on the shore and such was white too.

The water? Blue and crystal clear! It made me smile and really I never thought such kind of beach does exist and it's close to where my grandmother and other relatives live.

White sand and blue crystal clear water? Just perfect!

@ Madsuh, my pictures in this beach have different faces of my cousins and other relatives. I would still ask their permission if they want their faces to be posted here in travelgrove:)

Will definitely post a lot of pictures here for sure.

Cebu City History

When American supremacy ruled in 1901, Cebu and the rest of the country took the plunge for freedom. One cherished event in Cebuano’s past was when it was bestowed with its charter on February 24 1937 as per Commonwealth Act 58 authored by late Senator Vicente Rama. It was in then that the Interior Secretary, Elpidio Quirino picked the mayor and the board members of Cebu. Because of its rising populace and smart location on the map, it was picked by the Japanese forces to be its headquarters upon their arrival on April 10 1942. Years later Cebu finally beamed for being freed by the Americans in March 1945. Independence was in full circle in... Read more »
