Pilgrimage trips, which used to stop in Manaoag town (site of the Minor Basilica of the Holy Rosary of Manaoag), now extends to Pilgrimage Island.

Being one of the most prominent tourist spots in the Philippines, I had this notion that Hundred Islands has already been exploited. I kept on delaying my visit to this place because i thought it's too modernized and crowded for my liking. I had this unfair opinion that its not worth the five-hour travel time.
