Mabua Pebble Beach is the home to the infamous multi-sized pebbles, fresh squids, and delicious ground-rice cakes or bibingka.
Just about a 30 minutes drive westward from the downtown, this pebble beach is the local's favorite place to unwind and is frequented during weekends and holidays by avid picnic-goers.
You can see them seating on the rocks under the shades of the scenic coconut trees located at the mountain top which has the coolest vista...
..grouped on the other edge of the beach bordered by rock formations,
..or simply settled above the huge rocks along the shoreline.
While some groups prefer to be secluded from the crowd and have their moment cherished among them, others want the experience lively with the presence of many beach goers plunging and splashing in the water.
..Others wanted their piece of solitude, too.
But no matter how everyone performs their drama, Mabua Pebble Beach surely is a place for bonding and chilling.
And a perfect site for a dramatic sight of sunset too. Mabua Pebble Beach is the paradise of photographers who are captivated by sunsets.
The shore is laid with cottages made of indigenous materials. But if one prefers a more private space, well equipped accommodations and facilities are readily available with the presence of the Mt. Bagarabon Mountain Resort with its Hajahay Suites located closer and facing the shore.
I did mention about the rice cakes, but sticky rice cones are also available in the nearby.
P.S.: Photos are taken on the afternoon, perfect time to experience the beauty of sundown.
