I didn’t really know what was up for us in Balabac when we ventured there in 2014. My sole intention was to see the old lighthouse in Cape Melville. Never did I imagine that the place will move me so deeply.
Situated on the southernmost tip of Palawan, Balabac is a group of 31 islands and islets scattered on the rich water of Sulu Sea blessed with unspoiled fine sandy beaches, endemic flora and fauna and vivid marine life. With its remoteness, the place has preserved its beauty. It is generally offbeat and remote… it is the last of the last frontier.
May this reminiscence fill the longings and the gap that separates me and my beloved paradise.
