the sky was cloudy when we prepared for the island hopping. we are to visit Virgin island and Hilantaga-an island with a small motor boat. we crossed the Sta. Fe pier and we first dropped by Okoy Beach East of Bantayan .we then went off to see the Virgin island which is also called Silion island. the island is largely made up of rocks with some strips of white sand beach.
as we we get closer to its major docking site, we see cottages. the island itself is actually a beach resort but we are not interested of the resort. because we are curious of what the locals is boasting about this island ever since we arrived in Bantayan.they said that the Virgin island has one of the best snorkeling site here in Bantayan. before jumping into the water, we decided to take a loop of the island to search for the best spot for snorkeling.and we finally discovered why it was called Virgin island. that's on my next post.
