Matapos ang cave exploration, nag-island hopping naman ang mga UNTV Dive team sa Sorsogon kung saan natagpuan nila ang isang fish sanctuary para sa mga endangered specie ng mga isda.
You are now leaving the island of Luzon is what all travelers read when they enter the Matnog Port. "646 KM, Municipality of Matnog" says the small letters at the middle of the welcome arch at the entrance of the port.
I haven't checked what's written at the back of the arch, but I believe that if there's one, it should read, "You are now entering the island of Luzon. Welcome to Matnog. It's 646 kilometers to Manila."
Matnog is strategically located at the south-eastern tip of the island of Luzon. Its port is one of the busiest in the Philippines, playing host to millions of people cross ...
I tore up my usual schedule in favor of spontaneity. This is one of the most unplanned travel I did so far. Needless to say, I've been in a wonderland.
Tikling Island is located in Matnog, Sorsogon, a private island owned by a local. Only a caretaker, together with his family live there. It is very serene and pristine. You would want to steal that island once you set your foot on the powdery white sands of Tikling.
Our side-trips were Subic Beach in Calintaan Island where few resorts await tourists and the Juag Lagoon Fish Sanctuary, a man-made nest for various and beautiful fish.
One of the Hidden Paradise in the Philippines. Experience drift snorkeling and discover the secrets under the sea. Enjoy the well preserved nature, the sea and uphill caves, the white sand beaches, the amazing sunset , the fish and lobster farm and a whole lot more!... and of course, never leave Matnog without trying the "must try" Curacha, King Crabs, Prawns, Lobsters and of course Special Kinunot (Malunggay with shark's meat) in Bantigui Beach Resort. Well, to be in Matnog is just like being in seventh heaven.

Our trip to Sorsogon's Subic and Calintaan Islands then off to Samar.

Case in point: the pink sand islands of Tikling and Calintaan and the Juag Lagoon marine sanctuary.
We arrived late in the afternoon at this sleepy port town after a 4-hour journey from Legazpi City, settled down at the Matunog Pensi ...
