Alibijaban Island is a virgin paradise located at the most southern tip of Quezon and is in the municipality of San Andres. From Manila, you will need to suffer a nine to ten hour bus ride or six to seven hours of driving if you have your own car. I went by bus and the journey was very uncomfortable and butt-numbing, and to make matters worse the bus was not even air-conditioned. It kept stopping to collect new passengers even though the bus was already full ( 4 or 5 times) and I wake too be with a bunch of inconsiderate passengers who kept on chatting even when they knew the vast majority of ...
Alibijaban Island is located in Quezon.
Alibijaban ??" a name that's synonymous with a budget-friendly, quiet getaway in the province of Quezon. This little island first interested me a year ago and it's not a popular tourist destination yet. I have long wanted to go here and luckily it did happen. I've been reading a lot of good things about Alibijaban island and now has become a destination of adventurers and budget travelers. Those who are seeking some white pristine beach to escape the stress and traffic of the city.

Who wouldn't travel far for this perfect moment?
Last weekend, my friends and I explored Alibijaban Island, located in San Andres, Quezon. We have been eyeing that small island near the Bondoc Peninsula. We estimated at least 8 hours land travel plus 30 minutes boat ride to the island, which is a protected area for biodiversity conservation and considered a key biodiversity area.
We came from Sta. Elena, where we conducted a recon for our outreach group, Trails to Empower Kids. We left Sta. Elena late afternoon and we decided to take the Buenavista - San Narciso - San Andres Road. It ...
Alibijaban. Say that again ??" A-li-bi-ha-ban. Pronouncing its tongue-twisting name is a struggle as going to this remote island. It involves an 8-hour land journey to the far reaches of Bondoc Peninsula in a town called San Andres, which is surprisingly within Quezon Province despite the long hours on the road. Dirt roads, zigzag roads, roads in the middle of nowhere ??" it seems endless. But if the off-beaten track to lesser-known beach destinations is what you seek, Alibijaban Island will not disappoint.
