Visiting Gumasa, Glan

Posted by Kristan Monday, December 21, 2009

I spent a day and moment of my Christmas break just to relax from school stuffs. Since most of us decided to visit Gumasa, I joined in. Gumasa just fits the word wonderful.

Gumasa is a barangay in Glan, Saranggani province widely known for it's belt of white sand beaches. For people who prefer peaceful ambience, then the 3-kilometer stretch of white sand in Gumasa suits you best.

HOW TO GET THERE:

Our starting point is from Gensan, and negotiated the driver's price to lead us directly into Gumasa.

For people who want certain stops, look for a public van which is mainly heading for Glan terminal. Vans are found beside Gensan's bus terminal, Bulaong. Arriving in Glan's terminal, approximately 40 minutes, go see jeepneys heading for Gumasa, or ride motorcycles, widely known as habal-habal in native dialect.

BEST THINGS TO DO IN GUMASA BEACH:

1.) Play beach volleyball. Trust me, it's really fun diving in the sand just to save the ball.
2.) For overnight stays, consider a bonfire party! It is really good to sizzle up a cold night in Gumasa trough bonfire.
3.) Play Frisbee. Since the place is silent, few people visit the place unlike the other famous beaches, you'd definitely indulge into playing physical activities in Gumasa.
4.) Stroll around the white sand stretch. Walking along the seashore with friends is a good way of relaxation.
5.) Take photographs. This is the best way to preserve your memories with Gumasa. Click the shutter!
6.) Visit the small caves. Along the stretch of the beach, small caves meet you at the edge. It willbe fun dipping into their dark shades. Just be cautious.
7.) Meet people. It is really a fun thing to do when you talk to a person residing in that place. Talk with them.
8.) Somersault and dive into the waters. It would be a fun thing to do. Splash into the waters of Gumasa and find yourself staring at the blue sky.

I'll visit Gumasa again! Hopefully!
