it was time for us to leave the island but we kept on talking about how beautiful the corals and the creatures are. we set aside our diving masks and snorkels as we look forward to see our next destination.Hilantaga-an island was our final stop for the island hopping. if the Virgin island maintained a serene environment, this island is busy because it is occupied by fishermen. you will see houses and fishing boats along its shoreline but the water is still clear.what's good is that the officials of Bantayan opened this island to the locals for them in order to keep them from occupying the well preserved Virgin island. but a large part of this island are still haven for snorkeling.since we spent so much time snorkeling at the Virgin island, we decided to return to Sugar Beach resort in Bantayan island while closely passing by Hilantaga-an.
happy independence day dom!
Ganda nong bahay sa dagat. mapupuntahan ba yan? the number 1 and 7 pics are most of my fave.

Dong, about travelling ba ang seminar na pinuntahan mo?? lol
kakatakot naman yung nipa na nasa gitna ng dagat pero mukhang relaxing kung gusto magpahinga=)
I'm sure snorkeling in such rich waters was an experience worth remembering.
I've never been to that island but my sister-in-law was from there and I used to have a classmates from there.....I heard from them that fishing are the main works of the people and Bantayan is among the islands of Visayas who produces good fish...they have nice beaches too..
>hi doc rio, hehehe... hindi naman. puro kasi pasyal nakikita mo. yung nipa hut ay gurad tower ng isla. hindi ko alam kung pwedeng akyatin pero parang masarap nga magpahinga dun.
belated independence day doc!
>hi rachel, it is one of the best birthday gift i've received this year. one great snorkeling experience.
>eric, yes. yun nga ang kanilang kabuhayan dun. a very nice island kasi hindi pa ganun ka busy. bantayan is one of the major producers of danggit. sana makabisita ka din doon. it's worth it.
