EXCLUSIVE: Mara Lopez shares her top three beaches in the world


After finally wrapping up shooting Erik Matti’s action film Buy Bust, Mara Lopez said she is excited that they are getting closer to releasing it in theaters. “Nag-po-post production na kami ngayon. But it’s good kasi it gives us more time for post. I’m excited kasi first movie ko ito na I do my own stunts in an action film. And that’s really what I want to get into,” she told PUSH.

With her jujitsu training currently off-season, the morena actress said she is happy to focus on surfing and travelling when she is not at work. She listed down her favorite beaches in and outside the country and why they are special to her.

Siargao: Her First Beach





“Siargao is one of the first places my dad brought me to when I was starting pa lang as a surfer. I was ten years old our last time there. It has changed so much and it needs protection. That island needs protection kasi it could be the next Boracay. It’s already getting there. It’s a beautiful island. It’s my favorite place kasi it’s not just for surfers. It’s for everyone that wants to have a good time, who wants to eat good food. Pero it’s definitely top of my list dahil sa alon. Pero even if you’re not a surfer ang raming dumadalaw dun kasi it’s just a good place to be if you want to eat. Para na nga siyang nagiging mini-Bali (Indonesia) eh. Parang ganun. Of course the progress is medyo scary di ba? But then it’s still on my top list even if it’s getting really crowded.”

Iceland: Her Most Unforgettable Beach

Dun kasi ako nag-Christmas. Second time ko na mag-Iceland. Ganun siya ka-awesome na iniwan ko na dun yung surfboard ko. Kasi gusto ko ng tumira dun. Ganung level na (laughs). Iniwan ko dun sa friend ko na surfer din. There was a chance before to live there but now kasi I’m super focused on work and stuff. Iceland was just so beautiful and I wanted a change of pace. I want to experience something new but then that was short-lived. Mga two years akong nag-de-desire to live there pero what happened was talagang right now my focus is the projects that I’m doing, there’s Buy Bust coming in July.” 

Baler: Her Top Beach

“This would probably be my number one. I think I practically live there! It’s a five-hour drive from Manila. It’s so beautiful and there’s just so many places to visit even if you’re not a surfer. So you can still do so many things. After Baler, Catanduanes is second on my list because it’s so secluded but still so pure and beautiful. It’s super nice there. I don’t go there a lot because it’s a little bit far. It’s just a one-hour flight so it’s still part of my top three here in the Philippines.”
