A honeymoon island

Located in Bacuit Bay, Miniloc is one of four properties of El Nido Resorts, and part of a group of sustainable resorts in Palawan. This 40 year old resort attempts to resemble a coastal Filipino village with a magnificent setting. The holiday paradise only occupies 1% of the island and is at the edge of a plentiful house reef. Snorkellers and divers alike can have close encounters with huge jack fish and a variety of marine species just at its house reef. Even a black tip reef shark if they rise early!

The Bacuit bay is said to have been discovered by Japanese divers in the 1970s when they had to anchor due to a fishing line getting caught up in their engine. Since then it has been popular amongst divers, snorkellers and tourists as in these islands marine life is abundant. In specific, Miniloc Island is also popular among tourists because of its Lagoons.

Local transportation

Filipino ingenuity and necessity for a mode of transportation gave birth to these tricycles. They originated from military trycicles left behind by the US military during WWII. This popular mode of transport is a motorbike with a roofed sidecar bolted to it to transport passengers and anything else through the narrow streets and small towns in the Philippines. The engines of the tricycles range from around 50-125cc which means they never go too fast; but the rides sure are bumpy!

In Hove, actually

Among the sand, on promenades, or in groups of tiny “villages”, are brightly coloured, shed-like structures that make the British coastline unique. It is estimated that there are at least 20,000 of these typical and iconic beach huts along England’s shores.

Local authorities usually stipulate colour schemes. Here in Hove, beach huts must be a specific iceplant green and dark cherry. Doors can be any single solid colour or vertically striped in multiple colours. Hut doors can now be constructed from either panelling or tongue and groove.

A licence fee for 2018/19 is £367.20 including VAT.

These huts are in not in Brighton but in Hove, actually. An important distinction between where is posh and where is not.

A natural swimming pool

A secluded cristal clear tranquil beach in Western Australia. Ideal for swimming if you are not too cold as the rocks shelter the pool keeping it calm all year around.

The large boulder granite rocks that surround it make it a stunning and interesting destination. Especially for adventures, but be warned some rocks are slippery and you might fall flat on your back!
