Inlove with Sambawan Island

Dahil medyo petsa de peligro (nung 11th dumating yung huling sahod) sumideline muna ako bilang kapitan ng banka. Sakay na!

Yeah! (bakit ang itim ng siko ko?!)

Syempre sya din meron.

Pag sinswerte ka nga naman, nakasakay namin sa boat si Mayor! Thanks Mayor Macorol sa pag welcome samin at pag arrange ng reservation for us sa Sambawan Island.

After about 20 minute boat ride from Maripipi mainland, safely docked to Sambawan Island

Though weather is still gloomy, hindi umulan, well mini ambon lang. Ang linaw pa din ng water!

Our hut  for the night.

Attic for larger groups, you can ask for additional matresses.

Turquoise water - seriously this picture is not giving justice to how beautiful the island is.

Things to remember:

1. Power is only available from around 5:30pm til 5:30am - make sure to bring POWER BANK
2. Bring your own food! There's a mini canteen in the island however, items are expensive - get this, raw egg is Php 15.00 and boiled/fried is Php 20.00
3. If you're planning to stay overnight, it's highly unlikely they'll take you back to Maripipi in wee hours (for you to catch the boat back to Naval departing at 5:30am), so be prepared with extra cash for a boat ride to Kawayan instead.  
4. Make arrangements ahead of time during peak season. It's a small island -there are only  few covered cottage ( I think about 6 or less?) the rest are open cottages. Sorry I don't have a contact number to give.

something infinitely interesting
