So this trip wasn’t planned at all. It was one day before my friend, Clarise’s birthday when we decided that we are going on a trip to Pangasinan. Clarise’s brother, Rhenzo discovered this resort through a facebook post and we fell inlove. We discussed things in our group chat then came up with the conclusion that we’ll actually travel there to celebrate her special day. So he booked a reservation for the three of us in Masamirey White Sand Beach located in Baybay Norte, Sual, Pangasinan.
About this Resort
Masamirey Cove Resort is an ideal place to be for a much needed escape in the city. I totally recommend everyone to visit this place to be captivated. It holds white sand beaches, clear blue waters, an infinity swimming pool, asian-inspired villas, wonderful cabanas and cozy private rooms. They also have a bar and grill restaurant. We stayed there for only 2 days and 1 night yet we had the best stay ever! The people there were very accommodating and friendly, from the receptionist to the life guards, resort staff and even the driver. If you are looking for a beach that’s not jam-packed but with beautiful accomodation, this is the perfect place for you.
Note: It is best to check their website first and book a reservation before actually visiting the resort. Bringing small snacks and drinks is allowed but bringing large amount of food may be subject to a corkage fee of PHP 150.
