Best Activities for Summer — Milo Sports Clinic

Summer is not so FUN without swimming adventure but how would you really have fun on waters with your kids if it takes all your time just by worrying and watching while they play. You may also want to teach them how to swim by yourself but they are just so stubborn and keep on ignoring you. 

Resorts and Private Pools businesses are now very popular in our city so really have to consider teaching your kids how to swim or enroll them in swimming classes.


Before the school year ended, I already had been looking for summer activities best for my kids and enough for my budget. Fortunately, I had seen this Milo Sports Clinic in Swimming tarp hanging in front of Alta Vista Antipolo. I called and asked for the price and it’s really much cheaper compared to other swimming tutorials and trainings here in Antipolo City.

Mountain Climbing as we all know is a very exhilarating and dangerous sport or pastime.

Please read this carefully before going through the stairs.

At Real Cove Resort, challenge yourself on mountain climbing, but instead of using harnesses or any other equipment, the mountain were carved with 460 stairsteps. 

The stairs has no railings so please proceed with extreme carefulness. It is not advisable for people with health problems to climb this mountain. For first timers, you may feel drowsiness on your way to the top so find some chaperone. Do not forget to bring at least a bottle of drinking water.

Last 50 steps before the top

Somewhat a very easy climb. The stair slope is gradual until you reach the last 50 steps before the top. You can also pause at any point while taking pictures all around, “I actually paused and sat at the steps 4 times when I tried the stairs.”.

You could surely relate to the experiences of Roberto Romeo ‘Romi’ Garduce, our very own Mountain Climber from Balanga, Bataan, after completing this challenge. “I felt a little exhausted but satisfied and happy upon reaching the top.”

The Bosay Resort Experience

Enjoy the Bosay Resort with your family during daytime.

My kids really liked soaking into the water every summer and they liked Bosay because they could hop from one pool to another. They enjoyed the pool slides as much as the ambiance of the place.

What I like about Bosay are the structures. All facilities are skillfully designed like an art masterpiece so I usually photograph my kids in almost all corners of the resort. I also feel relaxed and comfortable either on their cottages or rooms.

Enjoy with your friends during night time.

For night swimming, I would recommend spending it here because the place is safe. Instead of going to regular disco house, try the Disco Pool. You can also use the videokes and sing with your friends.

From Antipolo to Real Quezon (One day adventure)

Another way for Antipoleños to spend summer is visiting Real Quezon Beaches. Antipolo City to Real Quezon is only about 100 kilometers or nearly two hours travel. You can choose among hundreds of cottages for rent along the shores of Pacific Ocean in Real where you may find comfortable.

Mountain views on our way to Real Quezon

From Antipolo City, you will pass several towns of Rizal along the Manila East Road like Baras, Tanay and Pililia. Through this road, you will also pass some towns of Laguna until you reach the junction in Nanguma  then go straight through this National road until Batuhan, Famy, Laguna then take the left route and travel through the winding Siniloan-Famy-Real-Infanta Road. You will not notice your two hour travel because of the beauty of the places you may pass by.

Early Family Outing for Summer Season — March 2, 2014

We had an early family outing wanting to see the fresh beaches. We reached Real at around 6:00 am but we went first to the market and bought some fresh fishes and shells to be grilled before we actually search the best place for us. I would recommend you to be here earlier in the morning to be able to buy freshly catched fishes of different varieties.

antipolo to real-19

We had chosen La Juliana Beach Resort because of their cottages roofed with cogon grass — cooler choice to cover us from the heat of the sun. The rental is only 300 pesos during this date but may increase a little during mid-summer.  Air-conditioned rooms are also available.


Our children were too excited so they rushed into the water when we arrived at the place. The water is wavy. “You are much too early for summer season.”, said by one of the resort caretaker. “The water may be calm by the third week of march.”, he added.

Luckily, we were able to bring styropor boards so our children enjoyed the waves. At first, we were afraid because the waves were big. On my estimate the highest could even reach at almost two meters and may pull our kids back into the water after splashing into the shore.

antipolo to real-15 antipolo-real-11

I was worried, but as our kids played into the water, they learned how to deal with the waves by going with it before reaching the shore. They also learned to jump over the waves so they will not be taken through the shore. I enjoyed watching them as they are pushed by big waves on their styropor boards through the shore.

I enjoyed our foods. Grilled bangus filled with onions and tomatoes, grilled clams “halaan” dipped in vinegar with siling labuyo, grilled marinated pork belly, grilled chicken legs, grilled hotdog for the kids and etc. All grilled except for the rice.

We packed up at around 4:00 pm and headed home. We reached Antipolo before 6:00 pm.

3B Rest House

3B Rest Houses now have six units for rent at a very affordable rate. Each unit is built with fine swimming pools with inclined depth to fit you and your kids.
