Bagac tourism officer Joan Teopengco recommended Flo-En Beach Resort as one of the destinations in Bagac during summer.
“Isa sa ipinagmamalaki ng Flo-En, standing for Flores-Enriquez Family, ay ang privacy ng lugal at ang pagiging ligtas ng mga naliligo lalo na ang mga bata,” she said.
“Dahil isang cove, safe maligo sapagka’t hindi masiyadong maalon at may kababawan ang tubig, walang malakas na undercurrent at hindi bigla ang lalim ng dagat,” said Fierabel Enriquez, one of the owners.
Even the medium-sized stones along the side of the beach are used by visitors as viewing deck to enjoy the sight of the green hill where the chirping of the birds can be heard and the vast sea.
From beneath the clear, bluish shallow sea can be seen stones of different sizes that children love sitting on especially during low tide, Enriquez said.
She said that some meters away from the beach are coral reefs preserved and maintained by the Bagac municipal government.
Municipal administrator Nicanor Ancheta said that the municipal government under Mayor Ramil del Rosario will install a diving site in the area. “Divers will have the chance to view from below the clear sea, assorted fishes and other marine mammals,” Ancheta said.
A number of cottages made of bamboos and cogon lined-up the sandy beach facing the West Philippines Sea.
These are available for rent from P500 to P1,000 a day. The resort is open 24 hours, any time of the day, said Enriquez.
Air conditioned rooms for P2,500 are also on hand that can also serve as viewing deck on the wide span of the former China Sea.
At the side of the road leading to the resort are beautiful flowers in bloom this March.
