     Amenities 


The Private Philippines Beach Villa sits in its own palm grove, the
beach villa is bounded at the front by a secluded beach. The
residence is fully equipped with en suite bathrooms, air
conditioning, a contemporary kitchen, large open plan lounge, dining
room and two storey entry hall. The floors are tiled throughout with
cool ceramics and marble. A TV and DVD player are available for your
entertainment, if you have any favourite DVD films, please feel free
to use the multi-region equipment, a small store nearby has all the
latest blockbuster films if required but be warned, the TV is a
piece of furniture that usually gathers dust at Villa Pacific.

A Patio and Sun Lounge area provide the perfect setting for morning
coffee and as the day dissolves into sunset, perfect for cocktails
as the blood red sky bleeds into the ocean. The Philippines beach
Villa has two tables and eight comfortable chairs on the patio.
There is usually, god willing, a fabulous sunset every evening.

Hammocking can be a great way to relax and relieve stress although
you should try not to hog the hammocks as there are sure to be
others in your villa party waiting to chill to the swing of the
Philippines night breeze.

A Volleyball court and Badminton court are available on site, as is
a hammock, Boules area and BBQ pit. Philippines BBQ’s are usually
lit using coconut fibres and shells and add the perfect flavour to
fish, steaks, lobsters and prawns. Assistance with the beach villa
BBQ is available if required.

Surfing, the private Philippines beach villa is only a short
distance from the famous Philippine National surfing beach at ABCD
Calicoan, the Philippine National surfing championships are held
every October and the opportunity for breathtaking surfing or simply
fantastic surfing photographs along the Calicoan coastline is
limitless depending on individual photographic ability.

Swimming and Bathing, The creek between Calicoan and Sulangan
provides the perfect spot for swimming in the crystal clear, warm
water, which will beckon you in on every occasion. The creek
seperates the Philippine island of Sulangan from Calicoan island and
joins the Pacific to Leyte Bay, it is always clean and refreshing.
Leyte Bay is very calm, whilst the Pacific Ocean has some great
surfing waves ideal for both professional surfers and learner
swimmers alike, you will be spoiled for choice at Villa Pacific
Philippines.

Snorkelling for beginners is very pleasant in the creek but with
younger children, check the direction and strength of the slight
current first. Swimmers can snorkel anywhere on the reef at the tip
of the sand bar where coral heads, and multi coloured fish are in
abundance. Try a canoe trip around the nearby Philippines island of
Kandalom for some exceptional, untouched snorkelling areas.
We also run a trip out to Pear Island which is a reserve for ocean
creatures snorkling here is the best in the world and totally
natural, you will never forget Pearl Island.

Scuba Diving There are some excellent sites in the locality of the
villa for scuba diving although divers should be trained to an
international standard PADI, BSAC, and prepared to travel to the
venues, scattered around the Philippine islands.

Fishing is available in the creek between calicoan and Sulangan for
small fish, perfect for the kids who can use small nets. The reef
provides plenty of fish for the casual fisherman but for the
enthusiast, a boat can be rented with a pilot and tuna fishing is
available (see photo in REVIEWS section records tumble in Sulangan
100kg Tuna) The waters around the beach villa are perfect for all
types of fish including shrimps, prawns and the finest lobsters ever
seen. Philippines Leyte Bay is very calm, whilst the Pacific Ocean
has some great surfing waves, you are spoiled for choice at Villa
Pacific. Full details will be supplied on application.

Space Floating On a crystal clear, dark, cloudless Philippines night
go to the beach in swim wear and try not to look up into the night
sky. Walk out into the ocean until about knee deep in the warm
Pacific. Sit down carefully on a clear sandy area, look to the
horizon and close your eyes. Lean back until your body is floating
comfortably anchored only by your heels, keep those eyes closed
tight. Relax, steady your position and when floating comfortably,
count to twenty slowly and then open your eyes. No further
explanations will ever be necessary.
Can also be achieved on the beach but not quite as mystical.

Karaoke The local villagers love to sing and will welcome any guests
into the Karaoke huts. Have a beer, go to the karaoke and have a
good laugh with the locals, make sure you take part it’s a great way
to meet your village hosts, once your inhibitions are gone the
perfect holiday starts and you become a valued member of the village.

Beachcombing- See also Samulan beach in tours, Villa Pacific
Philippines, being only 600 miles west of the Challenger deep, the
deepest ocean in the world and the Marianos Trench, the tide is
always throwing up unusual objects and shells onto Calicoan and
Sulangan Island by the million - enjoy.

Photography / Filming There are no superlatives to describe the
Philippines sunsets and views, wildlife, general scenery, habitats
and tour possibilities for photographs. If a picture paints a
thousand words the internet will never be large enough to
incorporate the words to describe this Philippines paradise on
earth, just make sure you have enough film and/or batteries to cope
with demand.

Full and detailed information will be supplied for your care and
enjoyment with your booking details.

SPECIAL INTEREST (Top Secret)

Samar has an idyllic tropical background for the surfing adventurer.
There are no real details in surf magazines as to where the surfing
areas are and this is a place for the true surfer to rent a jeepney
and explore. Many of the breakers on Eastern Samar have been surfed
by a handful of real enthusiasts. Some breakers have most likely
never been surfed before. (ABCD Beach, the Philippine National
Surfing Championships) - this beach is just 10 minutes from the
beach Villa) Get ready to thump your chest to restart your heart,
the high season breakers are phenomenal. September through to
February yields the monster breakers.

With time and effort you could be well rewarded with one of many
locations in this area of secret surfing paradise. You would be best
advised to start your quest around ABCD Philippine National Surfing
Beach at Sulangan and linger there, and then head off north, or
south.

The season for the best waves is generally September through to
March, with the bigger swells arriving later in that period. The
Philippine National Surfing Beach has some of the best waveforms and
pipes in the world, in October you're going to need a clean pair of
Speedos after every wave.

The people of Samar are extremely friendly. The scenery is a
tropical delight, which when combined with some classic un-crowded
surfing makes this an ideal place to visit and explore.
