Completely New SUBIC BAY...

Over the long weekend, my family and friends went out of town and experienced a completely new and different SUBIC Bay trip.

After regularly visiting Subic for many years, there are still many new places to discover.

New beach resorts: One of them is the Camayan Beach where we went. Nice white sand beach. They have very accomodating staff. Facilities are excellent but the food are a little expensive. You can bring food or grill there. You just need to rent a griller. We rented a big hub(Cabana) @ P750. They have nice snorkling and dive sites and relaxing beach front hotels too.

New hotels: My favorite are the ones at the freeport - The Lighthouse and Vista Marina. They have nice rooms and swimming pool but as usual, those hotels are fully-booked again.

Here are the pictures of our full of fun trip! 3 days and 2 nights!

checked-in at the Subic International Hotel Saturday pm...

reserved 2 twin ajoining bedrooms so the kids can see each other and play anytime ...

had lunch at the MEAT PLUS CAFE. Jovy's favorite American cuisine resto. Good food and yummy steak. Still the best!

then went straight to Royal Subic Duty Free to Shop shop shop!
(Jane and my favorite part of the trip haha!)

got these in my shopping bag.


and more sweets!

my kids love these tiny colorful gummy bears...

our new favorite gimik place, Ralis Bar & Grill.. by the bay. Nice view, cool weather, great food.

The restaurants specialty...Blackened Stuff - Loiusiana or Gulf Coast specialty: meat or fish coated in a unique blend of spices and cooked in special wax.

What we had...blackened chicken breast. We just love the taste of the blended spices. Crispy in the outside too.

the next day, we went to Camayan Beach resort and the kids really enjoyed swimming and playing in the sand.

Got so many pictures to share so just please take a look at my slide. :) Cant wait to make another mini album for this trip!!
