This group of islands is stunning and wont be long that its really on the tourist radar. When I visited I was the only westerner on the tour as the rest were locals. Places visited were Bantigue Sandbar, Tanke, and Cabugao Camay.

Our trip would have been perfect if not for EMILMARV travel and tours ruining it. First tourist guide was not guiding enough. Our group have to ask him first (all the time) of what island we are about to pass and which island are we...More

The place is amazing as you are welcomed by very kind local villagers. Pristine waters, one of a kind lagoon and unique caves will surely make your stay worthy.
