I've been to the island 3 times before ,but never ventured to North shore. This last time I made the trip and it really changed my impressions about the island. For those looking for a more off the beaten track, North shore area provides a more undisturbed environment.
We can hope that with the new highway connecting this area the local ambiance can integrate with tourism without destroying the beauty. Low impact resorts , ecological and educational adventures are key to preservation of the local beauty that is now there. Land and ocean exploitation that is not supervised by a green minded local government does not a healthy community make.
Tom and Liz live a low impact approach; (3 cabins for rent) which are environmentally friendly(all bamboo and nipa) . Its clean ,and not financially exploiting. The personal hospitality and service is unbeatable. I hope for more of the same in this area to keep in sync, balance, synergy, and harmony with the local life and culture and natural environment. We are hoping that with Liz's help Tom will be speaking Visayan/Siargaonon soon ;)
