Durhan Resort, Tabuelan

by Linnor

It took a few weeks for the plan to materialize. And finally last Saturday, we were off to Tabuelan province of Cebu for an overnight trip to the beach.  It's good to see that the roads up north were all smooth and paved. We didn't feel too shaken after the whole 2-hour drive from the city.

Tabuelan is a small sleepy town. There's really not much to see as we drove along the small road leading to our destination. It's because of this remoteness that even my Cebuano husband hasn't set foot anywhere near the place. It's the same reason why he's curious to see what Tabuelan is really like.

The beach is nowhere near 5-star in amenities but we loved being there just the same. Food can be brought in or guests could just cook or do barbecue.  If you prefer a more relaxed stay, you may request the resto cook to prepare some native fare for a fee.

The room my family and I occupied was sparse. It was airconditioned. It had 2 beds where we crammed ourselves for the night. It didn't have hot water, ref and tv but these lack of the usual hotel comforts didn't matter much.

Here are pics to show why we didn't miss the tv, cellphone or internet for about 36 hours.

Though not in pics here, the boys alternately swam, played frisbee and frolicked by the beach.  In between, they were feasting on lechon, tinolang native chicken, grilled lapu-lapu, and pancit.

Who needs the telly or the internet anyway when you're in a nice beach with family and friends? :)
