Because summer only happens once a year, people wait for the season to start in April before they would wear their usual two-piece for the beach. What more if summer happens every day where they live?

It is no kidding, because the thrill and fun of the summer season can be tasted every day when you take residency at Camaya Coast in Mariveles, Bataan.

To reach Camaya Coast, we traveled for about two hours using a yacht from Manila de Bay to its location in Bataan. Our journey to the place where summer occurs every day went very smoothly with the help of its awesome property consultant Gerlie Dolfo.

The cruise was quite a memorable experience for me, with my head singing 'My Heart Will Go On' while my eyes were darted at splashing of the saltwater while we crossed the  blue sea. And when we got to our destination, a small, fancy port welcomed us in grace.




















Most of the passengers boarded the yacht were going to Camaya Coast for a day tour. They were there to enjoy the beach, which was brilliantly ornamented with sunbathing benches, kayaking zone, and other swimming amenities.

According to the Joshua Espilita, Sales Manager, Camaya Coast will have its own golf course both for the public and its residents. For a P20,000-membership fee, a resident of the residential resort will enjoy all of its amenities- the beach, pool, golf course, water sports, function hall, etc.- lifetime.

How can you become a resident at Camaya Coast? You have two options:

First, you can avail of a cut of lot within the 450-hectare estate. We went around the estate (the residential region is above the beach accessible through a shuttle service) and witnessed ongoing developed gates to home a number of subdivisions. Lot sale is at P8, 500- 9, 100 per square meter.

Second, you can avail of a condo unit. A condo tower will offer studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units. The tower will have its own parking space and a roof deck to enjoy the view of the shoreline and the Bataan mountain ranges ahead of the estate.
































Earth and Shore Leisure Communities started the development of the area in 2007. According to the sales manager, a commercial center to host restaurants, clubhouse and other beach essentials is also on the list.

I was wondering if the place is prone to tsunami and other natural calamities, because living by the seashore may be quite attractive but dangerous. However, it was pointed out  that it is unlikely that a tsunami would hit the estate since the estate faces the south.

After checking out the upcoming subdivisions within the estate, we tried to see the waterfalls. We walked for around 15 minutes and found the small body of water in a calm state. To me, that was the humble climax of my Camaya Coast journey.

Because it was my first time to see what Camaya Coast has got to offer, we maximized the trip. In fact, I had my first times there: to ride a yacht, to go kayaking, to be in Bataan, to see a residential resort, to see kasoy, etc.

In a matter of hours roaming around the estate, I felt how wonderful life may be if summer hits everyday. Imagine waking up along the seashore, eating lunch under the coconut trees, and ending the night with a view of the majestic sunset. This must be God's promised paradise!

I noticed that the beach is very innocent--- maybe because of its distance from the capital region. Only a small crowd flock there for an intimate summer bonding, leaving the beach free from too much people and pollution eyesores.


























Camaya Coast can be reached through a 2.5-hour drive from Manila via the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX). It is near Clark, Subic and NAIA airports, too, but if you have a private jet plane, Camaya Coast allows direct landing to its vicinity.
