Last evening I and a colleague catched a bus from Manila to a beach south of Manila (the trip took around 4 hours), called Munting Buhangin near the town Nasugbu. I was rather disappointed, the beach was nothing special at all, and the environment was boring. Overpriced lodging.
Today we rented a boat together with an American we met and his girlfriend, to a nearby tiny island, where we did some snorkeling. Which saved the day.
At sunset the American gave us a lift with his car to the city Tagaytay, from where we went the last leg to Manila by bus.
I became sunburnt on my back.
