It is one of the nearest beach destinations from Manila with serene beaches, fun activities, and beautiful resorts — so no wonder why. Kwentong Dagat is a newly built beach resort in Liwliwa, Zambales. We went there few weeks ago with friends, and we definitely had fun! It was amazing that despite the gloomy weather, the place still looked lovely and peaceful.
Also read: Hermana Menor Island, Sta. Cruz, Zambales. The resort itself might look really jungle-ish but the road going there is smooth. Free parking is available within the premises and I was glad that even the parking area is being shaded by an army of pine trees.
It is also just a 5-min drive from the public market where you can buy food supplies. After checking in at the reception, the staff escorted us to our cabin. But not until you open it and see that it actually has an airconditioner, comfy beds, and most importantly, a relaxing fragrance which was quite unexpected! Each cabin has 2 double beds and 1 loft bed ideal for up to 6 persons.
It has basic conveniences like hooks for clothes and towels, 2 pairs of electric outlets for charging, a lamp shade, and an extra fan for the upper bed.
Toilet paper and hand-made soaps were also provided. You can book this cabin via Airbnb and you can get 1, Php discount when you sign up with this referral link. Total price could be almost 5, Php but booking it with a new account will make it cheaper around 3, Php. After signing up, you can book the property here.
The resort also has shared comfort rooms and wash area. Washbasins were also available with a couple of huge mirrors conveniently installed. Liquid hand soap was provided at the wash area. Dining area was huge with several tables and chairs. Have I mentioned that they also serve free breakfast? Unlimited brewed coffee and bread with different spreads, not that heavy but enough to wake you up and start your day. And you might ask, how about the aircon? Is it cool enough?
Well, let me just show you a photo of our dearest cooking oil which also happened to fall asleep just like we did. It was literally a chilly night, good thing the blankets provided were fleeced so we had a sound sleep. They only have 4 available cabins as of writing so make sure to book yours in advance. I also loved how the place glows at night!
It was like the only resort that lights up everytime darkness creeps in. It looked magical! But then again, we forgot to take photos. We got busy preparing our dinner. Speaking of which, authentic beach experience is not complete without grilling your own food for at least once. Always remember that, folks!
Our dinner was grilled chicken and fish yellowfin. Desserts were bananas and Mr. Donuts munchkins that we bought from 7-eleven just fronting the public market. We also bought snacks and drinking water at 7-eleven. Everything else we bought from the public market.Summer season is about to end in few weeks here in the Philippines.
Kung Bakit Maalat ang Dagat
And before the rainy season officially start, The Flawsome Lady went up north for a new travel experience. Located inside a small fishing village called Liwliwa, their location used to be a secret spot for surfers looking to enjoy the waves without the extra crowd. Kwentong Dagat is the first vegan-friendly resort in the province owned by a group of friends who are also vegan.
Yes, you read it right! He immediately checked our cabin and handed us our key. We get to settle inside our cabin Cabin 1 and I must say that they look better I actually find it cute! The exterior design of the cabins is a combination of traditional Filipino style and a modern rustic beach house surrounded by tall Agoho trees. Inside the cabin are 2 double-sized beds and a mezzanine floor. Each bed and the mezzanine can accommodate 2 people each, making the whole cabin fit for up to 6 people.
Pillows are so soft and I love how those soft blankets made us warm during the cold weather plus the air conditioning. And in our cabin, I appreciate having plants inside and these all-natural handmade soaps ready for our use. There are also outlets available inside which fits Type A and Type C plugs for your electronic charging needs. They have designated areas where you can pitch your tent.
I do not recommend you pitching your tent near the beach area as it really gets hot during the day. Kwentong Dagat specialises in vegan dishes. You can borrow kitchen tools and utensils from Kuya Reymar and Kuya Ian. I recommend you try their vegan dishes! I know for sure that Alex would be happy to cook for you and share stories! You can go there early in the morning and buy all your needed fresh ingredients to cook for your stay.

Nang ilalagay na niya ito sa buslo, bigla itong nagsalita, "Huwag! May kapangyarihan ako - mahika!
Kaya ibalik mo lang ako sa tubig at ipagkakaloob ko sa iyo ang hihilingin mo. Naalaala ni Mario ang dampang tinitirhan niya. Lagi itong inirereklamo ng asawa dahil sa kaliitan. Umuwi ka na at makikita mo ang iyong malaking tahanan," sabi ng isda na kaagad namang ibinalik ng lalaki sa tubig. Hindi lang malaki ngunit tila palasyo ng hari sa gara ang nadatnan niya.
Malaki na ang bahay namin. Nguni't hindi pa pala nasisiyahan ang asawa. Sabihin mong walang mga kasangkapan. Dapat ay iyong magagandang mesa, silya, kama at mga dekorasyon sa bahay. Palibhasa' y takot sa babae, bumalik si Mario sa dagat at namingwit. Nakakahiya naman ang asawa ko," bulong niya sa sarili. Nagkataong lumalangoy pala sa malapit ang malaking isda at nang makita si Mario, ito'y lumukso sa kanyang bangka.
Nguni't nakikiusap ang asawa ko, kung maaari raw, mabibigyan mo ba raw kami ng mga kasangkapan? Natitiyak ni Mario na matutuwa na ngayon si Ana. Malaking biyaya na talaga ang ibinigay sa kanila ng isda. Pagdating niya sa bahay, sinalubong siya ng asawa sa pintuan.
Humingi ka naman ngayon ng magagarang alahas at magagandang kasootan. Nais kong makita ng lahat dito sa bayan natin na tayo ang pinakamayaman dito," utos ng babae sa asawa, na alam niyang hindi kayang sumuway sa bawa't sabihin niya. Hiyang-hiya si Mario na humarap uli sa isda, na madali niyang nakita sa pampang na pinaglalagian nito. Matagal na hindi sumagot ang isda, parang nag-iisip.
Kapagkaraka ay nagsalita, "Nakikilala ko na kung ano ang uri ng pagkatao ang asawa mo. Isa siyang sakim at walang pakundangang babae.
Hindi siya marunong mahiya, at hindi rin siya mabait na asawa. Parurusahan ko siya.Pick your preferred language. We speak English and 42 other languages.

Kung kailangan ng mga tao ang asin sila'y tumatawid ng dagat upang kumuha nito sa ibayo. May isang taong ang ngalan ay Ang-ngalo. Siya'y napakatangkad. Pag siya'y nangingisda sa dagat, ang tubig ay hanggang tuhod lamang. Kung siya'y naglalakad makikitang ang mga bundok ay kapantay ng kanyang alak-alakan. Isang araw ang mga tao ay naubusan ng asin. Kailangan nilang tumawid sa dagat. Naalaala nila si Ang-ngalo at sila'y nag usap, "Dapat pa ba naman tayong maglayag sa bangka?
Atin na lamang usapin si Ang-ngalo. Kung kanyang ilalagay ang isa niyang paa na pahalang sa tubig, tayo'y maaaring maglakad sa pagtawid sa dagat. Sila'y nagkasundo at nagpunta kay Ang-ngalo. Si Ang-ngalo ay mabait at mabuting kaibigan.
Kanyang pinagbigyan ang mga tao sa kanilang kahilingan. Inihalang niya ang isang paa sa dagat upang lakaran ng tao.
Ang mga tao ay malayang nanulay sa paa ni Ang-ngalo. Dala-dala nila ang kanilang mga supot nasisisdlan ng asin. Katulad nila'y mga langgam na naglalakad sa troso. Hindi sinasadya ay kung bakit nang ilagay ni Ang-ngalo ang kanyang paa sa dagat, ang kanyang talampakan ay napatapak sa pugad ng langgam.
Hindi naglaon at ang mga langgam ay gumapang sa kanyang binti. Nang makarating ang kanyang mga kaibigan sa kabilang ibayo, kanyang inalis sa pagkakatuon ang kanyang binti. Kung kayo'y handa na ay saka ko itutuon uli ang aking binti," ang sigaw niya sa mga tao. Nang mapuno na ang mga supot sila'y sumigaw, "Kami'y handa na. Ilagay mo na ang iyong paa, Ang-ngalo. Hintayin nating makabalik ang mga langgam sa kanilang pugad. Saka ko ilalagay ang aking paa. Tumawa ang mga tao kay Ang-ngalo, "Walang katuturan ang iyong pagkamalaking tao.
Katulad ka ng bata. Natatakot ka sa langgam! Nakiusap ang mga babaeng nagluluto, "Pakidala na rito ang asin. Iya'y kailangan-kailangan namin. Hindi pinansin ng mga lalaki ang tutol ni Ang-ngalo.
Patuloy ang mabagal na paglakad nila na parang nagpapasyal. Si Ang-ngalo'y hindi na makatiis sa kagat ng mga langgam. Kanyang hinila at iniurong ang kanyang paa.Isang araw, natutulog ang mabagsik na leon. Isang daga ang naparaan at siya'y naamoy ng leon kaya't ito'y nagising. Bigla nitong hinuli ang daga. Nagmakaawa sa leon ang daga. Huwag mo akong kainin! Sa liit kong ito'y hindi ka mabubusog. Pakawalan mo na ako. Balang araw ay makagaganti rin ako sa iyo.
Minsan, habang naglalakad sa gubat si Leon, hindi niya napansin ang isang bitag. Nakita na lamang niya ang sarili sa loob ng isang lambat.
Hindi malaman ni Leon ang gagawin. Paikut-ikot siya, nagpipilit na makawala. Isang unggoy ang naparaan. Pakakawalan kita? Kahapon lang ay hinabol mo ako para kainin.
Tapos ngayon, tutulungan kita? Hindi, ayoko! At nagpatuloy ito sa paglakad. Napakaliit mo," pagalit na sagot ni Leon. Hindi na sumagot ang daga. Sinimulan niyang ngatngatin ang lambat hanggang sa makagawa siya ng butas na daraanan ni Leon. Salamat, kaibigan. Makagaganti rin ako sa iyo," sabi ni Leon.
