I’m testing my new tire on the back roads of Ternate, Cavite. So far, I have failed to explore the beach resorts near Puerto Azul but succeeded in
penetrating the defense taking a short beach stroll in Cavite de Boracay with a bonus of probably-not-always-allowed tour inside the Ternate Marine Base. The road in this mountain, doesn’t end in the Marine Base. It ends on a gated, exclusive resort on a cove known as Caylabne.
According to their website, the name was derived from Calabuenaor “Good Bay”. Google translate explained to me that Cala is Spanish for “cove” and Buena for good. Okay, Calabuenaor doesn’t exist on the web except from their website (or related to their site). Anyway, I promise I won’t do much talking on this post. This is not a review per se. I’m not a guest, just a solo motorcycle rider who happen to be exploring the roads of Ternate. It so happened that the road ends here… their resort. I thought you might like seeing what it’s like so…..
Again, this is not a review of the resort so I won’t be making any observation or recommendation. I was only there for about 30 minutes and stayed along the roads. I never got near the beach, the cottages or any other amenities of the resort. Please go to their website or contact them if you wish to find out more.
Then I checked my tire just before setting off again. I’m starting to get used to it, thank God. Taking a closer look at it, it really does look like there less contact point to the road when it is upright. Although that presents an exciting opportunity to lean the bike lower when banking, it is not needed often.
I have already been to two beach resorts but I still have to check something out. If you are in Ternate or Maragondon, and you want to go to Nasugbu, Batangas, you have the go all the way around and up to Tagaytay because of Mt Palay-Palay and the mountainous terrain of the area. That’s like more than 2 hours of driving. But now, that barrier has been breached! The Ternate-Nasugbu Tunnel is now open! Read about it on the next post.
