About Me

My photo
This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

gumasa: a sidetrip paradise destination

Sidetrip Gumasa Spread
Sidetrip Travel Mag (April-June 2009)

The beautiful beach of Gumasa in rustic town of Glan in Sarangani province (southernmost tip of Mindanao) recently got featured in Sidetrip travel magazine. Two of my photos were used for the article.

Sidetrip Gumasa
featured white sand beach of Gumasa

True to what the article mentioned, Gumasa's white sand beach is pristine and untouched by large scale tourism. Its considered to be the "Boracay of the South", sans the resorts, and the blaring dance music and parties.

My goodness. Sarangani perhaps na lang ang hindi ko pa napupuntahan sa Socsksargen! To think of it that I'm always at Tacurong, Gensan, Marbel, Polomolok...Someday I'll go to Gumasa!

I've been mulling whether I should include it in my next Philippine trip and your photos just make me want to go there all the more. Question: Is it only habal habal that can take you to the beach area or can you drive your own car from Glan?

Lantaw said...

Nomadic Pinoy, Nowadays you can bring your car up to Gumasa :)

Oman said...

Wow. Kahit umuulan parang ang sarap pa rin maglakad sa Beach. Lalo na kung ganyan ka broad yung shoreline. Beautifully captures Allan.

Lantaw said...

Dexter, Yup im using the same camera. thanks!

Reena, Malapit lang, mga 45 minutes lang from Gensan :). thanks!
