It was about noon when we decided to check the right side of Mahabang Buhangin, having observed that some tourists who settled on the opposite side of the beach would make that long walk under the heat of the sun to the other end. There was really nothing special about the right corner of the beach except that it was more secluded and more fit for swimming since it is devoid of any rocks on the sea bed compared to the more populous left end where rocks littered the sea bed.
After the trip to the right end, I decided to explore the left end of the beach while the others opted to return to the cottage to shade themselves from the intense midday heat. The left end of the beach is teemed more with people. The rocks are aplenty on this side which I was sure would get submerged in seawater the tide turns high. I could see a few locales gathering shells from the rocks which I was pretty sure would be their viand for lunch or dinner. I attempted to make small talk but all I got were blank stares. I smiled and left them scavenging for more shells.
I continued my exploration, carefully navigating the rocky left corner which curved towards the back of the island, and discovered a new beach which was more secluded than Mahabang Buhangin. More of this on my next post.
For the meantime, here are more pictures of both ends of Mahabang Buhangin.
