Would you still swim in this beautiful white sand beach even if…

…even if its just beside the cemetery?

I was swimming at the beautiful Santiago White Beach and from the distance, at the far end of the strip, I can see a beautiful but short strip of white sand. And I thought, wow, that one must be great for an intimate swim with a special someone.

But then, as I tried to look keenly at the shadowed areas, I was just surprised! Underneath the coconut palms and mantalisay trees were sepulchers, niches of the dead! Scary! But personally? I won’t mind.

What about you? Will you still swim here? I’m just not sure if you will bump into some grinning skull…

  1. the beach with its white sand and cool water looks enticing and made even more stunning by the greeneries in the background. but, i dont know, the thought of the cemetery near it feels eerie.

  2. The beach and white sand is great… just never mind niches… it is like, having a house near the cemetery which is also common in the province. I will just enjoy swimming!

  3. maayo untag ila nang i-relocate ang sementeryo kay basi sa imong kuha nga photo taas kaayog potential ni nga beach. easily accessible man kaha sya?

  4. basig nagpauso ang unang naglubong diha. instead nga sa layo unta to ilubong, dira nalang daplin sa beach kay gusto mangaligo. hehehe!
