    Tag 24: Bacuit-Archipel

    February 1, 2017 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Nach ein paar ruhigeren Tagen haben wir eine Tour durch die Inselwelt vor El Nido unternommen, den Bacuit-Archipel. 😊
    Auf insgesamt fünf Stopps haben wir weiße Strände, versteckte Lagunen inmitten von bewaldeten Felsinseln und unterirdische Höhlen entdeckt. 😍
    Es war mal wieder wunderschön, fast zu viel, um es alles ordentlich würdigen, aber wunderschön!

    Bacuit Archipelago

    November 15, 2016 on the Philippines ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    A day in paradise.

    We went island hopping, kayaking and snorkelling in heaven!

    We felt like we had been transported into a mystical world of fantasyscape jagged limestones and turquoise waters.

    Best day so far... Happy bunnies😃

    Secret beach

    March 3, 2017 on the Philippines ⋅ 🌙 6 °C

    The beach was even harder to get to than the others, there was a small hole in the rocks above the water that we had to swim through, luckily it was quite big below the water.
    Naturally most of our touring companions did not even attempt it. One guy actually gave his gopro to the guide to take pictures inside, what a waste to come all this way just to let someone else take a picture for you, you might as well sit at home and watch it on discovery channel.

    Anyway we enjoyed the little secluded beach and Isabel even made fun of all the girls we have seen on our travels posing like models in the shallow waves and I caught her on camera, haha.


    We learned through our wonders people in general are scared... or we just were lucky enough that parents gave us the confidence and fearlessness to do things. We snorkel further out , we swim through tiny holes even if there's waves. We lecture (and shout) at stupid uniformed tourists that step on coral. We are not scared and we love to adventure.

    Dive at Twin rock

    March 4, 2017 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Not the best dive of the day due to the poorer visibility and the fact that we had to swim quite a distance from the boat mooring to the actual reef.

    We saw a couple of scorpion fish which I always love to see. The one actually crawled on the sand which I have never seen before.

    We also saw loads of noodie branches, even two on top of each other, I wonder what they were doing?

    Dive surroundings

    March 4, 2017 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Today we are exploring the underwater world of El nido a bit further (&deeper). I am baking on the sundeck after our second dive, felt a bit chilly after 26 degree water (this mermaid might "struggle" for real @ future beach destinations).The maximum depth we went on the second dive was 17m, the diversity of colors and coral was immense. We saw a turtle, trumpetfish, angelfish, noody branch, moorish idols, fusiliers, and loads more.

    It is nice and relaxing between the dives, we saw a little bit more of the scenery on the other side of El Nido where Miniloc island is, where one of the prestige resorts are located.

    Hidden beach

    March 3, 2017 on the Philippines ⋅ 🌙 4 °C

    We arrived at a spot with rocky cliffs and no beach in sight, the guide pointed us in the direction of an opening in the rocks and we jumped in to explore. The rocks opened up to a beautiful beach, the beauty of this spot is, its quite a swim to get there and most people are just simply too scared to go see it, so we pretty much had the beach to ourselves apart from the guide and one or two people who got there using their life jackets.

    Die Tao Expedition startet

    May 8, 2019 on the Philippines ⋅ 🌧 28 °C

    Schon beim Briefing am Vorabend regnet es in strömen und auch am nächsten Morgen sah es nicht besser aus. Als wir zu unserer Expedition aufbrechen ist die Stimmung dementsprechend etwas verhalten. Doch nach kurzer Zeit verziehen sich die Regenwolken und die Inseln zeigen sich bei bestem Wetter. Wir lernen zuerst die Crew samt Bootshund Eli und die weitere Entdecker kennen. Als das Boot am Nachmittag stoppt heißt es für uns zur Unterkunft schwimmen. Auf dem Weg dahin treffen wir auf eine Meeresschildkröte die wir in aller Ruhe beim schwimmen und essen beobachten. Ein Highlight am ersten Tag. Das Tao Camp ist das einzige in dieser Bucht und so schlafen wir direkt am Strand. Geduscht wird mit Regenwasser und Licht gibt es nur von den Fackeln. Am Abend holen die Tao Boys alias Wrong Direction ihre Instrumente raus und heizen nicht zum letzten Mal die Stimmung an.Read more
