Imagine, one minute you’re enjoying some quiet time at the beach, sunbathing as you listen to waves crashing–and the next you’re on a thrilling adventure in the middle of a jungle, manoeuvring you’re way around an ATV. This is how a vacation in Sheridan Beach Resort and Spa is like. Located at Puerto Princesa where forests, mountain ranges and seas are all a stone’s throw away, Sheridan Beach Resort and Spa offers a bevy of activities and tours around nature trails, limestone cliffs, intricate caves and more. And this beach bum actually got to try a few of them.
I usually just laze around the beach whenever I see sand and sea in front of me so doing different activities was a welcome change. First up was the Sabang X Zipline. We had to trek for less than 30 minutes to reach the zipline takeoff point. If you’re not a fan of doing a little cardio, I strongly recommend that you sacrifice a few calories for this activity. The view that awaits you after you zipline across the sea is breathtaking. Just seeing the waves crashing against the huge rocks make everything worth it. Trust me.
The second activity in the series of photos below is the tour around Puerto Princesa’s Subterranean River National Park. Okay, to be honest, I skipped this one because I’ve seen it the last time I stayed in Sheridan. But I dutifully stole photos from Sheridan first-timer Kryz to help refresh your memory and remind you just how beautiful this underground river looks. No wonder it’s now one of the New 7 Wonders Of The World! If it’s your first time in the city of Puerto Princesa, you must visit this place.
Third on the series is the Mangrove Paddle Boat Tour. This was a quick one but well-worth it as well. Our guide sang as we made our way through the river. For a moment, it felt like the world stopped. Everything felt so serene and calming.
And finally, the last but not the least is the ATV Jungle Track Tour. This was a first for me so the entire experience was a huge thrill. It may look easy but it’s not. My blogger besties and I kept bumping into trees and going off-track that our guide probably had to save us a million times. Still, it’s a new experience and I loved it!
