Ladol Beach

WHENEVER MY family is gathered, we always make it a point that we go to the beach together. And Ladol Beach in my hometown, Alabel, Sarangani Province, has witnessed a number of family gatherings. If you have time to scan our photos at home from the 1970’s to the present, there are always shots taken on the sands of Ladol beach.

If you are thinking that Ladol beach is a tourist spot, you are mistaken. It’s a public beach near a fishing village so it is not well maintained. People just go the shore, spread blankets on the sand, assemble their umbrellas, or makeshift tents, where they can share with their family fresh fish grilled on the seashore or sweet homemade kakanins. Some groups rent shabby cottages near the shore while others are content with parking their vehicles near the water, as in this picture:
