Lenten Season, aside from being a holiday for religious devotees, is also a moment for those who seeks relaxation and enjoyment. Booking flights, connecting to online travel sites, going to swimming pools and beaches are the usual activities at the time. However, if you're looking for a different kind of swimming experience, far from the famous beaches like Boracay and El Nido which expectedly get crowded and congested during the season, try going to the underdeveloped ones, but are also as beautiful as the well-known beaches in our country.
1. Dampalitan Island -- Padre Burgos, Quezon
 
Among the underdeveloped islands in Quezon Province, Dampalitan Island is the most famous. Your eyes will be drawn to the pine trees that lined its white sandy shores. If you're looking for a simple and laidback environment, then,  going to this place is just right for you. There are few cottages available but you can set up a camp at the designated areas. When you're going to take a swim, you'll surely notice a net barrier in the water. This is to protect the vacationers from the jellyfish so make sure to stay afloat within the "safe" area.
 
The challenge on this island are the absence of electricity and phone signal, and lack of comfort rooms. There are less than five restrooms in the whole island. Long queues in these comfort rooms are a common sight in Dampalitan. If you're a faint-hearted, then make sure that you'll finish your "serious business" at the restroom before sunset for it gets pitch black at nightfall. There are vendors that sell sticks and other needed materials if you plan to build a bonfire.
 
How to get there:
 
Ride a bus to Lucena City and get off at the grand terminal. Take a bus going to Unisan and tell the conductor to drop you off at QRCB Bank (Padre Burgos).
 
Take a tricycle going to Aplaya where you can rent a boat. Instead of asking the boatman to just take you directly to Dampalitan Island, you can also ask him to take you on an island hopping tour (Dampalitan, Borawan, and Puting Buhangin Islands)
