Good morning, today I am checking-in from the most popular Beach in Panglao Island in the Philippines – Alona Beach. We woke up 5 am to catch the first sun rays, enjoy morning coffee and fresh mango juice. I really love being up early, it makes me feel as if I am a few steps ahead of the rest of the world, that is still sleeping and I can see it waking up.
Alona Beach is very touristic, with plenty of bars and restaurants, diving clubs, shops, tours, and chaos. I always prefer something more private, so early morning is the best time to explore the place.
Everybody was waking up, local kids were starting their day with small breakfast by the sea, dogs were playing and the boats were filling up with divers ready to explore the underwater. This hour was full of different mise en scenes, each one worth of being photographed or written about. Beautiful moments.
