After living in the Bacolod Area for over 3 years, there are still places that I discover for the first time every week. Last Sunday, we went to a fishing village, which is located near Barangay Sum-Ag and in Punta Taytay. There is popular restaurant known as Alcala’s Higad Baybay Resto Grill located here.
Turn right at the sign in Punta Taytay Beach area and you will be taken to a fishing village and small beach resort.
The Red Boat gets attention.
This is a great place to spend an afternoon. We rented a pavilion for P100 and it included a coin operated karaoke machine. Singing is something I really enjoy and even if you are not into today’s music scene, the karaoke machine in the pavilion included songs by Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly and Bill Haley and the Comets from the 50s and 60s. The Rolling Stones and the Beatles also were included from the 60s and 70s. There were so many songs to chose from that I would say that you will find several you enjoy singing!
Our six year old son enjoys playing, so we took our dart board and darts along. We adults had as much fun playing as our son!
You never know what you may see or find! A tree house on the beach.
The “specs” in the sea are fish folk gathering shellfish at low tide. Oysters, clams and red shell mussels are what are being gathered. Right down the road from this area is a row of seafood restaurants known as the Viewing Deck.
Never judge a book by its cover! There are a number of these seafood restaurants that don’t look like much from first appearance but once inside, it is a different look.
The bar is well stocked with even imported spirits available. A shot of tequila? It’s available. You can eat in or take out. There are also many vendors selling seafood that you can take home for a later meal. I enjoy all the shellfish. Oysters, clams and mussels.
As the saying goes, “different strokes for different folks,” but I am keeping myself busy by taking in the different things to see and do all around Bacolod!
