When I was a kid, summer vacations meant that we would go to a beach somewhere with the entire family. It would be a quiet and remote beach or at least somewhere where the kids can be left alone to their own devices (which is probably the beach front) and the adults can relax and rest while barbecuing the fish or liempo and nurse a cold bottle of beer.
Years and tourism have changed the face of beaches and have made them into party places filled with foreigners. The true “family” beach resort or venue is slowly being replaced and are becoming more and more of a relic of the past. This is why I’m very grateful that the Blue Pavilion Resort in Infanta, Quezon still offers the traditional beach rest house.
The Blue Pavilion Resort is a family run business and offers wholesome and enjoyable family entertainment and recreation. The Salitas have managed to purchase the resort from its former owner but never changed the name “Ito kasi yung naging home base ng mga tumutulong sa mga nasalanta noong 2004. Dito sa pangalan na ito nakilala so di na namain pinalitan. (This used to be the home base of operations for those who were helping out the survivors of the 2004 tidal wave tragedy)” Rene Salita, the resort owner states.
The resort is perfect for family or barkada outings. The rooms are simple, rustic but has all the necessities. There are several activities that you can enjoy while you’re at the resort, the usual being swimming but you can also go up and down the beach with their ATVs. You can also try to catch a wave with their wake boards or even have barkada fun with their banana boat!
You can also take a short trike ride to the fish port just at the end of the road. Here you can purchase fresh fish off the boat and bring it back to the resort to grill. Make sure to go there just a little bit before 10AM when the fishermen arrive with their catch. Maybe you’ll get lucky and finally see the kraken caught.
But it’s not just about going out to the beach and catching some waves. It’s about being part of an experience with the people you love – and there’s no shortage of that when you’re at Blue Pavilion. The owners, staff and even the dogs make you feel like you’re part of their family who has come to visit after a long time.
