Summer heat is officially ON!
Where is your destination to actually escape this intense heat? A lot of us prefer to cool down in out of town beaches and other prominent summer destinations in the country like Bohol, Palawan, Boracay, Davao and the likes. Going to these places means digging a hole in your pocket and extra effort doing your researches. Fun activities and definitely awesome experiences would then be the result.
Do you want to surf? How about dive? Maybe you wan to fly too? If you live just in Metro Manila and you don’t have the time for an out of town, one of the coolest destinations is just within your reach that can offer you these experiences. YES. Club Manila East, Taytay Rizal can actually offer these activities. They have the Ocean Waves, a 14-feet deep diving pool and their newest attraction – CME FLY
It is definitely an ocean within the city. OceanWaves is the country’s most powerful simulated wave pool that perfectly mimics that of oceans – perfect for surfing.The wave here really differs from that of the ocean because it is uniform and definitely not salt water (harder to catch a wave). The surfers use the long board in this ocean wave pool.
Just recently, they held the 2nd CME Surfing Competition organized by Philippine Surfing Academy (PSA). The event was open to all beginner surfers. Categories include kids (under 13), open women’s and open men’s. I am just fortunate to be invited and cover this event.

It was too exhilarating to watch the surfers grab their boards and paddle out. It is even more exciting to see them balance out and ride the waves. I am actually stoked to see little kids ride the waves just like pro.

Note: CME provides surfing lessons to those who like to learn this water sport. Perfect activity to heat up your summer!
The 14-feet deep diving pool offers the same adrenaline rush with that of a cliff-dive. Your energy will surely be heightened as you jump-off the ramp and touch the water. You can do whatever diving position you want – just be very cautious for your own risk. Though, lifeguards are all over the vicinity so you won’t feel any worry that you might drown.
CME FLY is a 320 meter zipline. It is said to be the longest and nearest zipline in Metro Manila. For just Php150 a ride, you can already experience to fly and see topview of the resort. The CME Fly is now open!
