Sisiman Bay – Mariveles Bataan

Hello guysh! I’ve been to Bataan for nth times already but in Bagac area only especially Stella Mariz Resort (our favorite beach near Manila). After taking vitamin sea there we went straight to Sisiman Bay in Mariveles Bataan to catch the sunset the following day. We got here via car sorry I don’t know how if commute but there are detailed blogs going here.

Here are the photos of our trip. Credits to our photographer friends, it looked like taken in the other country sabi sa IG comments ^__^

If you are adventurous enough you can also do trekking there. No entrance fee and you can do pictorial without payment. There are kids that would offer their service to be your guide but actually you don’t need one. It’s so accessible from the parking area, maybe you can ask one of the kids to check out your car for safety reason. Check out my post on Instagram for more travel pictures. Thank you guysh I’ll try to post more. xoxo

We did not go swimming right away because it’s too hot. Nothing beats playing Splendor (board games) on the sand. I guess if you have no plans of swimming, you can at least bring books or your hammock.
