Bicol, Philippines still has a lot of unexplored wonders of nature… those not yet popularly known but will leave you coming back for more.
We traveled via a jitney (Public Utility Vehicle) for 1.5 hours from Naga City to Brgy. Bahao port. The breath taking view of the coconut trees all over the place relaxed me during the trip… Then, from the port, there is another 25 mins. boat travel to Poro Island, Libmanan, Camarines Sur.
I was with college friends and other joiners thru a tour package offered by Kaddlagan OutdoorAdventure Tour. But anyone can DIY going to the place. We first went snorkeling and its the first time I saw a live underwater fist- sized Octopus (Unfortunately I failed to take a photo of it) , then we saw different species of fishes to include those of Nemo and Dory!! And yes, we swam along with a school of fish!!!
I really loved the water! The rich coral reefs and everything underneath!!!
Then, the guide accompanied us and did some mountain hike then some rock climbing on on the rocky slopes and cliffs:
We took a light hiking going up the mountains, and then, went on a little rappeling activity going down to do float circling!!! It was super fun!!!
And then after a while we did some rock climbing for some photoshoot and we saw a live crab!!! Haha!!
The pictures we took are “buwis buhay” as we take them at quite a height and in a cliff!!!
It was a great experience and I am definitely be coming back to Poro Island… it’s a place without resorts around just the local folks who made the bahay kubo cottages and making a living out of domestic and international tourists…
TODAY, I’m officially a beach bum, wanderlust, and adventure seeker.
I so love Poro Island, for sure will be coming back here!
