Maubo Beach: An Ideal Spot to Relax Down South – Patikul, Sulu
I’ve been away for ages and what I really missed about my hometown are the beachfronts where its unique and natural beauty is a come-on to the local and foreign travelers.
Sulu in the Southern part of Mindanao has been on news for years. It’s sad fact that people perceive the province as “War Zone” when in fact it should not be, for it has many distinctive spots that could cater to enjoy and worth the holiday of your family and friends.
The Maubo at its finest
There are several beaches in Sulu. If you’re looking for a beach to unwind but budget friendly, then Maubo beach is perfect for you.
Maubo is one of the finest beaches in Sulu. You can just ride on a motor tricycle for only 25 pesos. It is just 20-30 minutes away from Jolo (the capital of Sulu.), located at fourth-class municipality of Patikul.
Maubo beach has a crystal-clear water and one-kilometer bleached sand that you’ll enjoy to run in like a kid especially if it is high tide. One good thing about this beach is that it is for free and open for all. Its popularity never goes out of style for it’s now more developed for the local tourist attraction of Sulu.
Extra treat: The Timber Bridge
If you’re tired enough walking along the one-kilometer white sand beach of Maubo, why don’t you try leaping off from the Timber Bridge and enjoy the deep sea and dive?
Timber Bridge was built a few years ago and it attracted more local tourists. It has more or less 15 feet above sea level. Good thing, if you can’t swim well, there are available salva vida and life jacket which are readily available for rent. The delight it gives can be seen on the faces of people who jump off from it. It gives thrill and fun for those adventurous that is worth to try.
Be Entertained with Lumad Performers
They are not just a mere lumads that some people try to discriminate. Maubo beach opened its door for them. Instead of begging for coins and left-over food, Lumads are people that Sulu is proud to have.
Using their ingenuity somehow enrich their lives. People who watch their performance voluntarily give them rewards. Showing their sole talent in dancing and singing by means of their self-invented musical instruments is what fascinate their viewers.
The musical instruments they use are made of indigenous materials and the lyrics of their songs are composed under the sun. Isn’t it amazing? Yes, it is.
