Highlight of Overnight Busuanga-Culion Immersion

Belonging to the less commercialized western half of Busuanga Island, the municipality of Busuanga extends to a multitude of utopic islands just off the mainland coast and down to Culion Island with spectacular World War-era shipwrecks and endless marine-life encounters beneath its cerulean waters.

Snorkeling in the healthy reef of Lusong Coral Garden and examining a sunken landing craft mark the start of our exploration. We cruise next to either North Cay or the still undeveloped Pamalican Island (not to be confused with its namesake in Cuyo). Both islands, north of our route, casually boast of blissful white sands and clear waters stretching all around to meet the horizon. Manta-rays and dolphins are among the many chance encounters while exploring the reefs.

Witness the simple life by the sea when we take a stroll in Panlaitan Island’s fishing village. Later, we venture up north for lunch in the shade of the looming limestone cliffs at Black Island. In contrast to its apparent darkness, this 50-hectare island produces silica making its fine sands glisten white. Spend the rest of the day exploring its caves, and surrounding coral reef as well as a shipwreck at very shallow depth before camping out on the beach. Here we enjoy picnics amid amazing views of the sunset and again, at sunrise.

Lose track of time with the soothing metronome of waves crashing on yet another magnificent expanse of white sand and crystalline waters with hardly anyone else in sight at the uninhabited West Nalaut Island. Situated in the westernmost end of the Calamianes, unwind in utter peace and quiet and be equally enthralled by its extensive reef system where blue marlins, dugongs (sea cows) and octopuses could be found.

The captivating blend of azure from the sky to the waters takes us south to Popototan. While evidently more developed than other islands on our route, this island also offers a tranquil scene on the beach and incredible underwater sights. Continuing the exploration further south, we reach the northwestern end of the Culion Municipality to Galoc Island. Also considered an important nesting ground for sea turtles, explore this island’s well-protected fringing reef.

Towards noontime, we head back to the white sandy shores of Pass Island in Busuanga for a late lunch, more exploration out in the house reef and more time for you to play and relax under tropical palms on the beach.

Just before losing the light, investigate the makeshift home of aquatic life spread over a gunboat taken down by hundreds of bullets during the Japanese invasion, as our voyage comes to an end.
