Fun in Hundred Islands

The last time I visited Hundred Islands was like ten years ago. Since it is just located in the province where I live, I seldom or barely visit the place at all. Nothing has changed much since my last sojourn except that I came to realize how beautiful the place was. It was a  haven for persons who wish to experience the calmness of the ocean scenery, where the only sound you can hear are the wind blowing and  the water splashing along the shores of the Hundred Islands, one of the enticing spots in the Philippines.

For one to appreciate the island hopping, a motor boat is readily available with a tour guide that will take you from one island to another.

Blue, calm water surrounding the islands.

Crocodile Island because of its shape.
Island shaped like a turle thus it is called the Turtle Island

Fascinating school of  fishes in the pristine waters.
Bat cave. See those black ones hanging onto the tree? Those are bats!

"Lulubog-lilitaw Island" or the "Now-You-See-It-Now-You-Don't Island," is said to be the 124th island when low tide. When high tide, it disappears making the islands 123 in all.

Oh, how inviting the white sand was!

First time to encounter bangar fruit, used in dyeing blankets. I don't think it is edible.

A quiet place for a stop over for some refreshment during the island tour.

Special thanks to Manong Jimmy as he is fondly called by many, our guide and navigator.
