Pebble Beach

pebble beach (8)In one of my trips to Mindanao, my cousin brought me to a beach that was very much different from all the other beaches that I’ve been to in the past. This beach had its shoreline lined with pebbles – millions of them. It was quite a sight to see. Different sizes of pebbles, some small – the same size of pebbles on a pebble-washed wall.  But some were big – really big. They were bigger than my fist – which probably should not count as pebbles. In fact according to wikipedia – a pebble is supposed to be smaller than 64 mm –pebble beach (4) my fist is a little bit bigger than that. But according to the Surigao City website, all of those are pebbles.

Anyway, back to the trip. When we went there I was quite amazed with the fact that the pebbles were actually covering the whole shoreline. It was probably more than a kilometer long. And these were no ordinary pebbles. There were quite smooth. This was probably caused, most likely, by thpebble beach (1)e movement of the water when the tide would come in. There were huts along the side of the road and a small resort was still under construction at that time. I think it would be a nice place to stay in, but I would suggest, if you’re not used to walking on pebbles while going to the beach, that you wear your sandals or flip-flops when you go down to the beach to swim. Or else you may end up with a pair of over-massaged feet before you hit the water.pebble beach (2)

We were just there to check the place out since we did not bring our trunks. This is one place that you should not miss if ever you would go to Surigao del Norte. By the way, if you plan to go there, you can ask any local where Mabua Pebble Beach is. They would be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
