To travel is to live– Hans Christian Anderson
Last year, I stop going to places. I was feeling down the whole year. So, as 2019 came, I start again to make myself happy. To rebuild myself. Some may say travelling is just a waste of time and money. But they will never understand how travelling helps me to fight and live more despite of the struggles that i’m facing in life.
And if you really want to travel and not spend a lot of money. You should be a little wise and resourceful. Metrodeal is where I look for budget friendly travels. Week after we went to Erins Place Resort. I saw the Ferriest Day Trip to Camaya Coast for 599 pesos on metrodeal. The promo is only until the end of January.
Ferriest Day Trip promo inclusions

We booked for January 30, 2019 because Wednesday is the only day that I don’t have classes. I don’t expect a lot from our trip but I am very excited.
Our trip was scheduled at 4:30 am but the day before Camaya Coast texted us that our trip was rescheduled at 7 am. I was very happy because I really dont know how I can go out of the house at 3:30 am.
We booked a grab car so we can go to the terminal as fast as we can. Because it is already 6:30 and the gate will close at 7 am. Fortunately, we reach the terminal two minutes before 7 am. We present our printed voucher to the front desk with our Valid IDs then they give us our seat number. We were the first one to enter the gate and the ferry. I was very excited so I dont have any pictures of the ferry with me. But I will post some of the ferry boat pictures below. All the photos is from Camaya Coast Facebook Page.
It was our very first time to ride a ferry boat. That is why we spend a lot of time on the upper deck of the boat. Then we search for our location on google map. Its so refreshing when you are surrounded by the waters and it is very windy.
When we reach the main entrance. We present our voucher and they check our bags. Then they gave us our welcomed drinks. Well, I was very amazed with the resort staff they are very kind and cheerful.
When we saw the rattan lounges. It’s so perfect because there is a lot of trees so we will not worry about getting burn by the sun. I was so amazed when they have cold water dispenser in some trees.
Another thing I love about Camaya, is the area for free charging. Because I forgot my power bank, my boyfriend and I decided to just stay there. Well, the charging area has its own tent with rattan chair and table.Also, the view is superb.
Things to do in Camaya
- Biking – I’m glad because after 20 years. I finally learned how to ride a bike (thanks to my boyfriend for being so patient in teaching me how to bike)
Because of that I was able to enjoy the unlimited biking in Camaya. Well, its not really unlimited. But if you’re lucky enough that there are less guest in Camaya then you can enjoy biking for more than one hour.
Biking in Camaya is a very refreshing experience. Imagine, biking around lush green scenery with a lot of palm trees and in front of you is the cream sand, the sea, the sky and the sun. Plus, it is very windy and Camaya Coast is a very clean beach resort. So if you visit Camaya Coast dont forget to ride a bike.
2. Kayaking – After biking, we rest for 20 minutes. Then we decided to register for kayaking. After that we change to our swimming attire. Then we go kayaking. My heart is so full while we are getting around the ocean. The water is so clear. Even it is so hot that time because its 11 am.
After kayaking, we didn’t go to the inflatable water park because it’s so hot and we have to eat our lunch. We need to recharge because biking and kayaking is refreshing but it is also a very tiring activity. After eating, we visited the hotel pool and swim there. We were the only one swimming there that is why we enjoyed it so much.
3. Playing at Inflatable Water park – It may not be as big as Inflatable Island in Subic Bay Free port Zone. The water park adds more enjoyment and activity to Camaya Coast guests. I just hope that they will add more inflatable activities.
4. Enjoying the beach – The beach is clear, salty and the water is very warm that day. That is why I feel so relaxed. The water is knee deep.
I thought it will rain that day. I’m glad that it didn’t.
5. Swim at their Infinity Pool – Their infinity pool is beautiful and clean. That is why we spend the rest of our stay here. We enjoyed swimming back and forth or just relax in their kiddie pool.
6. Photo ops or just enjoy the beach – one hour before our departure time. We are now ready to go, because we still have to roam around the resort one more time and take pictures with our ootds.
How to get to Camaya Coast
The Camaya Coast new Ferry Terminal is at the Esplanade SeasideTerminal One Esplanade at the back of SM Mall of Asia near Vikings. The travel time is less than 1-2 hours via Supercat Ferry depending on the coastal conditions.
Via own vehicle
Camaya Coast is not accessible by public transportation. Using your own vehicle, take the road via NLEX to SCTEX exit and ply towards Subic, Olongapo. Take Dinalupihan exit (around 77 km. to site), turn right along Roman Superhighway towards Bataan passing Hermosa, Abucay, Balanga, Pilar and Limay. You will reach Mariveles town proper after passing the zigzag road, marked by Jollibee and Death march marker and from there, follow the directional signs leading to Camaya Coast site.

I hope you visit Camaya Coast anytime soon. The deals they have is very affordable. Now the aqua park is open. You have one more reason to enjoy Camaya. The only thing that I dont like in Camaya is their pricey foods. Yes, they have many food establishments but it is very pricey. But for people who have the money or the budget then this place is very perfect.
Tip for budgetarian like us :
Try to eat a lot of foods while you are in the ferry.
