With the many long weekends and holiday breaks coming up, an escape from the busy city sounds like a good idea. Booking a hotel somewhere or traveling out of the country might be the go-to but there’s another option where you can really disconnect. Glamping spots have been popping up in local beaches so it might be time to try it out. You still get to experience camping but in a more luxurious way. You’ll have actual beds and sometimes even tables and chairs. However, most of these places have little to no internet access so you have no choice but to be one with nature.
For surfers and those who enjoy water sports, consider Easy Adventure for your glamping trip. Located at Charlie’s Point in Baler, you’ll have access to the beachfront and overall relaxation. You will also be able to completely disconnect since they don’t have electricity and rely on natural resources. Book your trip and get ready to put your phone away.

If you’re thinking of making your way to El Nido, consider booking a nest at The Birdhouse. Each tent can accommodate up to four people and is surrounded by birds and wildlife.

Another glamping spot in Baler is the Sand and Stars Beach Resort. Here, you will be able to camp right on the sandy beach. The fee of P1,300 to P1,050 a night includes breakfast, access to the beach, and of their grill. The tents are also fitted with colorful and patterned furniture, which makes for great photos.
