Not a popular destination during the Hagabat, but timing is everything. Took a chance in the 3rd week of July, on one of those rare days when the forecast called for "partly sunny with thunderstorms". We were so lucky. There's even less people/tourists there during...More

A beautiful, less traveled by beach area. Experience the Philippines without the tourist headaches! This authentic fishing community is home to another beautiful beach, with much less traffic and local prices!
