Photographer's Note

Differently from European and North American beach life where most of the people wear as little as possible to get some tan or to show off their super slim body, most Filipino's and maybe other Asians as well, tend to cover more of their body when on the beach.

One of the reasons to wear more clothes on the beach is that many Filipino's don't like to get a tan, they rather have their skin as light as possible, to look more European, where as Europeans and Americans think the other way around.

At this part of the beaches of Panglao there were hardly any foreign tourists. Appearantly they prefer to go to the better known Alona Beach, only a few kilometers away from this beach, where there are also several diving resorts. At dumaluan beach (this one) you will mainly find locals and therefore a different kind of beach life compared to what most of us here at TE are used to in Europe and Northern America.
It is up to oneselve to explore a different culture or stay safe in your "well known and safe" tourist world.
