And the tour includes a visit to the Vanishing Island (Banising as mentioned by the bangkero), HInatuan Cave, Sibadan Fish Cage ('Piskids' as what kuya bangkero said), and the Tinago River.

I highly suggest Cabgan Island in Barobo, Surigao del Sur!
Powder-fine white sand and turquoise water: two of the many things that this island can offer. This is one of the unspoiled islands that I've been to. I was in awe!
