Hail to a New Day
Sunrise in Tambobong Beach

No matter how dead tired I am, the lure of seeing God's gift of a new day wrapped in amazing hues of gold, red, and magenta is just too hard to resist. Seeing the amazing display of colors that morning in Tambobong beach felt exactly like this:

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day

-excerpt from Morning has Broken by Eleanor Farjeon (popularized by Cat Stevens)

Warm sunshine on your face, the smell of fresh coffee and breakfast ... what could be more perfect than this?

  4. I am glad for people like you who wakes up early to catch the promise of a new day so people like us who can't rise that early can see the beauty that lies in the breaking of the morning.

  22. beautiful picture. :) just would like to inquire if you stayed at a resort here at tambobong beach and if you could recommend one for us because we're planning on going there. thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  23. wayfarer, thanks! we stayed with one of the locals (been going there since late 2007). I recommend you camp on the beach ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. "I recommend you camp on the beach ;)"

    we're a family of four with 2 young kids i don't think it's possible for us to camp overnight at the beach... still no available resorts there?

    thank you

  25. risa, Last Holy Week there are lots of families there that camped on the beach, and yes with young children too. But I understand that not all relish the idea of sleeping on the sand. You can try Matabang beach resort (http://matabang.multiply.com/), not much amenities. Its a small family owned resthouse that doubles as a resort during vacation season. They have 1 aircon room, several cubicles and open cottages. Chances are this place will be crowded.

    Or so can always stay with one of the locals. You won't believe how friendly and accommodating they are. Just don't expect Boracay type accommodations ;)

    email me at aebarredo[at]gmail.com if you need more help and info. I can recommend houses where you can stay at very affordable rates

  27. risa, Thank you! Matabang was not crowded? They did not overcharge you or anything? :)

  28. because the weather was not cooperative and the fact that it's weekday when we got there, i guess it's our "lucky day/s" the whole resort was ours and also colibra/culebra island.
    rate is under 300 per pax (attic)

  29. risa, Lucky indeed. I hope you were able to try fishing in their "pla-pla" pond.

  30. we went to dasol last summer 2009,,the place was breathtaking however staying in matabang beach spoiled it! the resort was highly commercialized..they practically charges everything!!!

  31. @Anonymous, thats why I prefer to camp on the beach or stay with one of the locals :)
