Travel Diaries | Potipot Island, Zambales


Potipot Island: Get-away at Gateway


It's a summer weekend for me and for our dance crew at work, Smart StreetDance Crew (SSDC). This weekend, we had an overnight stay at the Potipot Gateway in Zambales. It took us 4 1/2 hours of travel from Makati City to Zambales. The traffic was very light and the sky was clear and sunny. Perfect weather for a beach get-away.

The place was very nice and cozy. Perfect for a relaxing weekend with friends. And to get to the main venue, we need to cross this bridge. We parked our van on the other side and walked to the entrance of the Potipot Gateway.

At first look, I was surprised and amazed by the nature themed resort. I loved the trees and flowers all around the area. It was very surreal.

We had lunch at their hall and the food was really nice! They served well cooked meals and the staff were very friendly and accommodating.

We stayed at the Lower Log House, occupying 3 rooms with 4 pax each. The rooms were well prepared and arranged. Also additional beds and pillows were provided. We checked in after lunch then we headed for the most awaited trip to Potipot Island!

It was a very short travel to the Island. Though we got really wet during the ride because of the waves. But it was so fun! We were all excited to see the Potipot Island.

We stayed for 2 hours in the Island. We rode the 3PM Boat ride to the Island then rode the 5PM ride back to the resort. The Island is a public place, like a smaller version of boracay. I saw a lot of camping tents where most of the people stayed. Unlike us who stayed in the resort, some stayed on the island itself. There was quite a crowd already when we arrived and a lot more was added when we left.

Back in the resort, we went to the pool area for another swim.

The sunset was so beautiful I can can't keep myself from enjoying the view. It was a very fruitful day, bonding with the crew of SSDC.

And to my friend Zane, who will be leaving for Singapore next month... You will be greatly missed. I love you my dear friend! I had awesome times with you. I am honored to dance with you all through out the years that I've been with the team. I look up to you and your skills in dance, except all your craziness. LOL!
