Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort Review
Previous Post: Resort Review: Bluewater Sumilon Island Discovery Day 1
There are three types of routes (beginner, moderate and advanced) and since we just had a great breakfast, we were more than ready to conquer any challenges along the most difficult route which takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour depending on the number of selfies you will take along the way.
Laughs. Though it is the hottest route, it also is the most scenic of the three. We passed by a lot of breathtaking and picture-perfect sceneries especially by the natural lagoon teeming with high mangroves and the marine sanctuary that is visited at times by migratory birds.
We also checked out their historic 19th century watchtower (Baluarte) and took a sneak peek inside. I also tried to climb up the lighthouse but only did it halfway since I realized that I am afraid of heights.
We also passed through Julie’s rock where I injured my left foot due to a misstep bumping my Achilles heel against sharp coral stones. Half-way through, we noticed a cool phenomenon in which the ripples of the waves met at a center point which was very fascinating to watch. We also dropped by the Grotto of the Virgin Mary and the so-called Yamashita Cave and took a quick peek inside.
Unbeknownst to anyone, Bluewater Sumilon Resort has a greenhouse filled with organic herbs they use for their dishes, a bee farm where they source their honey and also a compost pit with vermiculture where they make natural fertilizer from their fruit and vegetable peelings, a practice which is truly commendable! After the long walk under the scorching heat, we decided to retreat back to our rooms and have a quick nap before lunch.
