⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ When I was still editor-in-chief for a local magazine, I spent a few days shooting fashion and beauty editorials here with my team. If you’re familiar with the popular Philippine surf town Baler, Aurora, this is just a bit farther, but a lot quieter. They take care of *everything* for you: food, accommodations, surf lessons, massages, just let them know whatever you need! The best part about Côte is that their rooms, which are repurposed containers, are so comfy despite the “roughing it” vibe. When I interviewed one of the owners, he said they chose to construct their resort this way to create the least impact on the environment—all the more reason to support them! I never wanted to leave!
