Tambobo Bay - Road Trip with Boo Boo

Happy hearts everyone! Most people find it depressing if you we don't have dates on Valentines Day, but, it's not depressing at all. We have friends and families. Even if I have a partner, I spent my Valentines Day with my friends. My partner has to go to work, and we already had a make up date before Valentines Day. We're not so clingy with each other, and we meet up once a week or three times a month.

I'm at Tambobo Bay
My friends asked me one time why I don't go out with Max in a road trip. That gives me an idea of reaching Tambobo Bay and Malatapay market. Our endearment is "boo", and later on we call ourselves "booboo."

It was one boring day, and we have to spend our rest day together for the first time. I asked him why he never went out with me in a road trip. He told me, because I never asked him so. I didn't feel guilty, because I know what he's getting at. He just wanted to change the story. I dared him to go with me in Tambobo Bay. He was caught off guard, telling me with all the excuses and everything. But, we off and went to Tambobo Bay that day.
Beautiful cove in Siaton
What's in Tambobo Bay?
It's a beautiful cove where many yachties are attracted to stay from a long travel. The place is really clean and peaceful. It's also surrounded with mangroves that serves as a marine sanctuary. Let me take you with me. 

Since there is no beach resort in the area, from Dumaguete City, Philippines, you've got to stop in Malatapay market. Sumptuous lunch is serve in many carinderias or eatery. They are only open every Wednesday.

The port for Apo Island is also in Malatapay.

Tambobo Bay is located in Siaton, Negros Oriental, Philippines. From the national highway, you'll find a junction that will take you to the Bay.

The road is not fully cemented, but cars can definitely pass. There's not much houses as well.

Tambobo Bay from afar
After all those bumps and rough roads, we're able to see a glimpse of the bay from afar. I tried to take a lot of pictures, but I gave up due to the scorching heat of the sun.
"Welcome! It's beautiful to see Tambobo Bay. " The locals posted this Welcome note.
Schooners, sloops, catboats, sunfish (a type of sailboat), catamarans, ketches and yawls—found in Tambobo.
Awesome white sand bay
I was so tired and drained from our travel. We hid ourselves in a small shades and talked for awhile. The place is really marvelous. It's wonderful how they manage to keep it clean and beautiful.
He is exhausted, but I forced him to smile.
He's trying to figure out if swimming is restricted in the area. No signs anyway.
Instead of swimming, I encouraged him to pose for me.
The water's really inviting.
The water is blue because it's deep. Check out the place in Google Map.
Yachties

We're unable to find someone who can tell us about the place.

I have to hold my hair, because it's really breezy.
We went home after two hours. I discouraged him from swimming, because there's no one who can help us if something bad had happened.
Tambobo Bay

Thank you for your visit toay. Tambobo Bay is where yachties and world sea travelers found haven for a quiet peaceful rest before typhoon hit the area where they are sailing. If you have time to check it in Google Map, try it out. You'll be amazed by how this little place welcomes strangers and travelers from other places of the world. Till here! Happy Valentines Day!


Just me, 
Phioxee

  1. What a beautiful place, perfect get away for anyone who doesn't want to be bothered. Valentines day should not only for lovers, i think it should be for everyone to celebrate the day with the people who are near and dear to you. The thing is most equate it with just the lovers only. Thanks for sharing this pictures.

  4. LOL. Bakit si BF mo ay ayaw kang samahan sa roadtrip? Ang saya kaya magbyahe. Sayang nga lang at hindi kayo nakapag-swim-swim man lang.

    Isama mo uli siya sa susunod para naman mas mag-enjoy siya sa kakagala tulad mo.

  7. Akala ko dati single ka, haha. At least, wala na lang nagawa si booboo mo nun yinaya mo siya sa Tambobo Bay, hindi siya nakalusot sayo no? Haha. Sobrang nice ng place, but since sabi mo e malalim yun tubig, hindi rin ako mag-enjoy masyado dahil matakot ako mag-tampisaw, haha.. You two look good together, btw. Naku, baka may magselos sa post na to, charot!! Hahaha

  32. Tambobo bay is beautiful. GREAT pictures. The Cove in Siaton is stunning with the blue sky and water

    We don't do Valentines Day up big either. I don't like going out on Valentines Day and fighting the crowds.
