My aim for the day was get some shopping done, sample some good food, get a henna tattoo, go to White Beach (apparently the 'nicest' beach in Galera), and just relax. Of course, 'relaxing' in the hotel's private cove involved something totally alien to me, and I ended up totally loving it: snorkeling. Very handy, considering the hotel's beach was literally about 20 steps away from our section.
Our section of the resort.
And the hang-out place.
View from the rooftop restaurant.
However, before I jumped in the water, the hotel staff told me off, saying they required all guests to use life preservers and beach shoes. Um, okay then.
For some reason, I really like this picture. :P
I love Puerto Galera!
Blue Crystal's private cove.
After snorkeling, we all went to get our henna tattoos. Mine was pretty customized. I wanted a fireball, but in the middle, a profile of the moon and a single star. Of course, personal meaning. :) I like Efren's henna tattoo of a carp, but I forgot to take a picture of it. :(
The girls were all about running off into boutiques and shopping (hence the lack of pictures, but here are the rare moments when everyone were actually together. This was in the bazaar (shopping again) of White Beach. Poor Efren had to be the camera-guy. :( Thanks though bro.
Really cool jet-ski dining tables.
Welcome to White Beach!
This poor boy was lugging around that heavy case of drinks, so we all bought a cup of coconut juice each. Very delicious. :)
Life is easy and breezy. :)
