Our habal habal hurled the long and well paved road leading to Northern Samal Island. It is an easy ride going through thick verdant bushes, bahay kubos, and chapters of infinite cerulean seas yet the road trip was short. To be exact it’s a 15 minute ride from to the wharf to the resort’s entrance.
The guard warmly welcomed us as she check our reservations done just an hour prior our ferry ride to Samal Island. Few minutes later and a white golf mobile came to fetch us and brought us to the reception area.
