Have you tried exploring the beaches in the northern part of Cebu? Aside from the famous public beaches in Tuburan and the white sandy islands in Bantayan, Carmen, which is located along the seaside, also boasts a number of beaches you can try. Alegarbes Beach Resort is situated on a rocky coastline in Puente, Carmen, Cebu. Unlike other beaches that have a long stretch of shoreline, this humble resort’s pride comes in rock formations that the visitors will love.
A big rock is sitting a few meters away from the shore. If you’re an adrenaline junkie, or simply want to conquer your fear of heights and deep waters, you can climb up the rock through man-made stairs and plunge into the cold seawater. There’s a rope connecting from the huge rock to the shore so if you’re not a good swimmer, you can simply hold your life into it and still try rock jumping. They say you cannot get the full experience of the resort unless you do it.
Also, jumping involves a quick burst of energy which improves cardiovascular health, metabolism, bone density, strength, muscle tone, balance, and coordination.
Sit Back and Relax
Experiencing the same thing over and over again can cause stress. Changing your setting by going to the beach, your senses are engaged in new sights, smells, tastes, and sounds. This can improve your mental state and increase feelings of relaxation.
And did you know that the color blue is a highly peaceful color? Blue can be especially helpful for stress management because it can encourage a powerful sense of calm. When life is too much to bear and you’re feeling blue, ironic as it may sound, dip into the blue waters of Alegarbes Beach Resort. Together with your colleagues or family, take a break and visit this resort to enjoy precious time by the sea. There are cottages for rent where you can sit back and breathe in the salty breeze.
See the Sunrise
Early birds get the early worms—or so they say. However, when you arrive at this resort earlier than the rest, you can get a glimpse of the beautiful rising sun. The sound of the waves will soothe your mind. Plus, it is mostly high tide in the morning which means rock jumping will be on your list.
Moreover, study shows that getting exposure to the sun and the ocean air is great for your mental health. Exposure to sunlight is thought to increase the brain’s release of a hormone called serotonin. Serotonin is associated with boosting mood and helping a person feel calm and focused. (healthline.com)
You’re lucky to be born in this era where taking photos is at the end of your thumb. Create memories by flexing your summer OOTD in the simple garden of the resort. The elevated setting of this resort will give you a better angle on the blue waters below. Make it a habit to snap photos as many as you can because if you think you only do it for a timeline update, then you should know by now that there’s more to it. Aside from preserving wonderful memories—both old and new—photography helps you find beauty in this world. Positivity is a good fuel to your mental health.
We go to places for many reasons—to breathe, mostly. In Alegarbes Beach Resort, your thirst for shaking off the crumbs of stress is one of the main reasons why such a beautiful beach has been developed for you to enjoy.
