Kayaks and ATV's in Poctoy Beach, Torrijos

KAYAKS IN POCTOY BEACH


Since the start of Summer 2011, visitors and the young people of Torrijos and neighboring towns have been enjoying the very special thrills derived from kayaking.




These kayaks are rented out by Beach Hut manager, Toper Matienzo who runs this picnic address that you find right at Poctoy Beach.









A lot of people who frequent this popular white-sand beach are now drawn to sampling these colorful kayaks, available to those who would rent them at Php 150 per hour.

In these kayaks the paddlers stroke a double-bladed paddle to travel farther out to the sea or just leisurely explore the coast of Torrijos Bay. These Poctoy sea-kayaks (Beach Hut has four of them), are designed for travel by two-paddlers on open water.








This new watersport is now attracting more local sea kayakers and tourists. Shown here is Matienzo (second from left), with recent kayakers from Britain.













ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLES (ATV)


Beach Hut also rents out four-wheeled all-terrain vehicles (ATV). These vehicles are designed for a wider variety of terrain than most other vehicles. ATVs are defined as vehicles that travel on low pressure tires with a seat that is straddled by the operator, along with handlebars for steering control.

ATVs are perfect in maneuvering Torrijos’ terrain, such as the rugged and bumpy road leading to the Battle of Pulang Lupa historical site, the most recommended trail for riders.



Some ATV riders also travel from the battle site all the way down to the hamlets of Bangwayin and Maranlig, then back to Poctoy Beach. They pay Php 800 for single use of the vehicle, good for about three hours of a unique adventure. Beach Hut has four units available.
