The beach of white sand

I had a vacation at Kaputian Beach Park, western side of Samal Island. There are about 10+ cottages and the beach of white sand.

Coconuts (buko)

This man is climbing to take coconuts upon my request. He then chopped the nut and served me fresh coconut juice. I was allowed to have rest at his small bower facing the peaceful sea.

What a peaceful time I had

Kaputian beach has beautiful white sand. Most of people in the resort wait until about 4PM to swim, except these boys. The island over the water is Talicud Island.
