Vacation at Talisayin Cove - Blast From The Past Series

first off, a little background about the photo. potipot beach is another is another cove off zambales. this was our first summer destination. will make a post one of these days about our time at potipot beach. i was feeling nostalgic so i wrote the word 'potipot' in the shore of talisayin cove as a nod to our first summer adventure as a group. did you ever feel nostalgic about that?

2nd week of march 2012, i went to talisayin cove in zambales with my friends. it is further than anawangin cove but talisayin is more beautiful and more serene. there is no electricity in the island. amenities are very basic. there is a nipa hut, two bathrooms, and a couple of tables, and that's it. also, there's a small nipa hut that serves as a kitchen/wash area/cooking area.

we arrived at around lunch time and quickly we set up the tables for some eating and lots of drinking! the rest of the afternoon was spent swimming and trying to catch fish. the evening was spent on more drinking and catching up with friends. we exchanged stories and jokes with the caretaker of the beach. we found out how life was at the beach and had a better and deeper understanding of their ways. truly, one benefit of traveling is opening your eyes to the ways and means of the world! plus, this guy was funny! the guy is a total hoot! safe to say that we have made a friend for life at talisayin cove! have you ever made an acquaintance that turned out to be a good friend?

Photo is mine. Villas at Talisayin Cove. at the other end of the cove from where we stayed there are 5 villas. the caretaker of the island said these belong to the owner of the island and that these serve as rest houses for the owner and his relatives and guests. the owner also had a platform built at the side and top of the mountain. word has it that cellular providers are looking at establishing a cell site in the island since there is no signal in the island. the second day was spent trekking up the mountains and taking more photos of the beach and island from the viewing platform. Photo is mine. View from the deck at Talisayin Cove.

not sure if there is already cellphone coverage nowadays or how much it has changed but my fervent wish is that they maintained the pristine condition of the beach and the mountain.

i'm looking forward to coming back to talisayin cove and once more experience its beauty and splendor!

I wonder who is the owner of the island. He must be pretty rich.

Although, I am from the Philippines but I am not familiar with that plae but based on your pictures, it seems it is a nice a hideaway.

Yup, I bet the owner is pretty stacked. No doubt about it.

When we went to Talisayin Cove it wasn't that popular compared to Anawangin or Potipot. Not sure if the same is true nowadays.

I have not heard of that vacation spot. It would be neat to explore.

This one is located in the Philippines LeaPea2417 but it isn't as popular as Boracay or Palawan.

Yeah, thought occured to me but hopefully, the place changed for the better.
