Travel Tips:

    • For inquiries, contact Aling Gemma: 0947-5911630
    • There are communal restrooms in the island
    • Overnight is allowed so bring your own tents though there are tents for rent (PHP 300-400)
    • Charge all your electronic devices and bring extra batteries as electricity is not free. At night, the generator only runs from 6 pm to 12 midnight
    • Bring your own potable water
    • Buy all the necessary food and beverages before going there as everything is way expensive than the regular price (Eg. 1.5L coke = PHP 120)
