Discovering Awak Pah
When the impulse strikes, there is no other option but to give in, even if it means to go swimming in the rain.
For life’s simple pleasures such as spending time with the family in the water, one of the solutions is to go to the beach and on a small island where water is simply all around, the solution is just a stone’s throw away.
For just $2.00/pax as an entrance fee, you could park your car and walk to the stony beach. Hey, it may not be as powdery white as Boracay, but the water is as clear. With your goggles on, you may be able to see some of the fishes lingering at your feet and the shellfish that are unbothered by the wake of your footprints.
A row of modest cottages align in a row between the coconut trees, these cost about $5.00/each for a day. Hammocks lazily stretch across the trunks of coconut trees, while the mangroves form as giant fences for the Awak Pah.
What else makes this beach appealing? It’s accessibility, just a straight drive from town or a few hundred meters from the Village Hotel and you’re there.
If ever you decide to go it is always wise to bring these necessary stuff:
- Change of dry clothes
- Sun block
- Camera with fresh batteries
- Goggles and fins
- Pocket book
- Plastic bag for wet clothes and garbage
