Beach Mermaids Alona Beach, Bohol Philippines (Part 1 )

Happy Summer Guys! Its 40°C right here, what better time to go to the beach right? I’m not even sure if I’m being sarcastic.  I hate sunburn!


Henann Resort behind us.  Alona white sand beach in front.  How convenient!

My in-laws and twin sister planned the whole trip and I’m so grateful for it because it turned out to be the best beach experience I’ve had.  We stayed at Henann Resort which  sits at Panglao, Bohol and along the pristine shores of Alona Beach ! One of the best 5-star Resort in Bohol (with great Wi-Fi connection! ) and one of the best fine-white-sand beaches in the Philippines!

Our whole 4 days trip wasn’t just spent swimming in Alona beach, we also went snorkeling, swam at Hinagdanan Cave and swam and climbed the Mag Aso falls.  We were wet 12 hours a day with #saltyhair and #sandyfeet !  And I’ve accomplished two of my life goals– be a beach mermaid and swim in a waterfall.  Check out the video.


Breakfast and dinner buffet at Henann Resort –  The food was fantastic especially their tempura, roasted duck and BBQs.  Kids 4 years and below eat free of charge! Woopee!

Sunken bars! Too bad they don’t serve just juice.  Bug really wanted “juice”

Hinagdanan Cave – The water looks creepy but I swear it’s not haunted.   Bug got too scared to swim, she cried and screamed the whole time “MOMMY GET UP!”

Right above is the only decent photo I have in the Hinagdanan Cave because we used my sister’s iphone6 with waterproof case to take photo the whole time.  And you know what sucks? it’s NOT WATERPROOF!  So I’m saying this out loud DO NOT BUY APPLE’S LIFEPROOF WATERPROOF CASE BECAUSE ITS FAKE. And it cost Php5000 / US$108.

sister-in-law, Bug, and father-in-law at Mag Aso Falls

We were all shocked that Bug wanted to climb the waterfall because it’s so slippery and quite dangerous– well we carried her more than she climbed but at least she tried.  What’s more shocking is my father-in-law who’s probably the only senior citizen ever climbed the Mag Aso falls!  His secrets are 1. Fish diet and 2. Play basketball regularly.

My sisters comatose iphone6.  I’ll bring it for repair today.  Don’t DIE!

I don’t have any photos of the snorkeling trip because of the same reason I have in the cave.  But we did get lots of shells and starfish!– till my next post.

Thank you for reading 🙂
