Simple Beach Lounging At Toril

Having gone for quite some times to different fantabulous white sand beaches with Resorts equipped with state of the art facilities and first class services, my idea/thought for an ultimate perfect Beach Lounging has become this luxurious. But this thought has changed when I visited a Public Beach in Toril, Davao City.

TORIL is a semi-rural area in Davao City, about 30 minutes to an hour ride to downtown Davao. Situated along the coast of Davao Gulf, Toril Beaches have been one of the favorite beach spots of nearby locals looking for a thrifty and economical beach outing. No entrance fees. No corkage fees. Everything is free except for the few cottages for rent.
But the whole place offers only simple Grey/Black Sand Beaches. No white sand beaches. No crystal clear blue waters. No luxurious services and first class facilities.

Everything you’ll see is SIMPLICITY! Everything I saw is a plain simple beach life!

BUT what amazed me was the fact that at the back these simplicities and behind its plainness, I’d seen hundred of smiles and a bundle of joys in everyone’s faces enjoying the simplicity of the beach. For simple people with simple joy, this is their pleasure. It is where they find bliss.

Just like this group of young boys enjoying their greatest times.

I almost believed that this can be simple paradise for simple people looking for simple pleasure until i saw something that almost threw out my intestines.
This is a reality. Behind its beauty of simplicity lies a sad fact that needs attention. We all need to care for surroundings. Be it beaches or our own dwellings. If so, its simplicity becomes a luxury.

tatalunin ng beaches ng Sarangani Bay ang mga beach ng Davao Gulf, pramis. Pero pauso ko lang yan. Hahaha. Anyhoo, great thing you love beaches.

Yeah, I agree with wilfred. Magaganda ang mga beach sa Sarangani compared to mga beach sa Davao Gulf. Hehe. Pero anyhoo, dapat talagang i-maintain ang mga ito. sadly, we are not caring and preserving it. hay. hope that they will realize how beautiful our beaches here in the country.

Sama mo naman ako next time. I'll be home (Mindanao) on Oct22. And also attend ka MBS2!
