There is nothing more satisfying than to spend an entire weekend under the sun, in a beach and pig-out as if there's no tomorrow- and spice it up with the company of some great friends! That's what we exactly did few weeks ago in Subic. Francis, a good friend of mine licked this trip into shape way back, but it's just recently that all of us got to finally agree with the schedule. I've been to Subic a couple of times but this experience is one hell of a fun trip! The beach and I are really not good friends but right after this experience, I am missing it so badly. :(
From Manila, we took the bus going to Subic. It's a roughly 3-hour trip. Thanks to my Huawei pocket wifi; traveling long hours on the road is not much of a struggle anymore. It's touchdown Subic Bay Freeport Zone at around 10:30AM- just in time for lunch. Haha! After a few hours of walking and wandering around, we finally reached our destination - Swell Bar and Cafe.

Swell Bar and Cafe is not the usual "bar" or "cafe" that you're probably thinking. It's a few steps away from the beach and radiates that laid-back, easygoing feel as if you're living the life of a freewheeling urban youth- carefree, happy-go-lucky cheerfully irresponsible (haha!). Well, that's how we were during our stay there. It's breezy; the smell of the beach is just so inviting. By the way, Swell offers paddle boarding experience for those who wish to enjoy the beach in a new and exciting way.
Thanks to Gianne Montelibano, Swell Bar and Cafe's operations manager, for giving us a party-fun, food-blast and booze-filled welcome. Here are some of our random Subic photos. Will share more on my next blog posts.
Paddle boarding = fun fun fun!
