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.
