We started with all the easy ones first. Did you know that the water right in front of the Beach Club is home to a school of fish (I forgot what they were called, though). Ask for some bread from the restaurant; don't forget to tell them it's for the fish feeding. Anyway, the moment you drop the bread into the water, be prepared to get mauled by the cute fishies (and my mauled, I meant adorably tickled haha).
When you're on the boat, the water is so clear that you'd think you're still in shallow water. You can still see straight through to the bottom. I'm a pretty strong swimmer so I said I'd go in without a life vest but when I dove right in and saw how deep it actually was, I had to ask manong for a vest! Anyway, we spent most of our snorkelling trip feeding more fish, bigger ones this time. The manong who drove our boat and toured us mentioned that Amanpulo is home to a huge school of batfish. He even taught me how to use the bread as bait to try and catch (by "catch", I meant hug and release) one of the batfish.
Another highlight of the snorkelling trip was when we saw two of Amanpulo's resident pawikan. God, they were huuuuge! We found them happily munching on some seagrass. Manong was so nice, he tried to make them come up to the surface so we can see them better but, alas, food >>>>> everything else. I guess, I can related to that. haha. Looks like I've found my new spirit animal!
Manong took us on the Hobie Cat down to Shark's Point where some baby sharks can be found playing. Unfortunately, we didn't see a single one. :(
We blocked a huge part of our second afternoon for spa treatments like massages and wraps. What's an R&R trip for if not to get pampered, right? The Amanpulo Spa is the highest building on the island. From the lobby, you pretty much have a panoramic view of the beautiful scenery.
