Pebble Cave: Be Mesmerized By Bataan's Cyan-Tinged Ocean Floor

One of Mariveles' most revelling destinations, found within the corners of Nagbayog Cove, is a chamber of stones, refined and rounded by the movement of Bataan's waters and sands: the Pebble Cave.

From the bow of the boat, one could at see the cyan-tinged pebbles of the cave, lavishly strung out the ocean floor. Be extra careful with your feet as sea urchins are lurking around the crevices of the cave, well, beauty will always have some sort of catch behind it.

After prancing around the open waters, one could take a short respite with a bottle of soda by the shingle beach near the cave's entrance.
