White Sand Beach of Dampalitan Island

Dampalitan Island
Dampalitan Island came from Dampalit or shoreline purslane in English (Sesuvium portulacastrum) which is a type of a perennial herb that grows in the coastal areas throughout the world, which is also visible in this Island.  According to the caretaker, they can actually create a sumptuous salad out of this herb.   This kind of dish was already published online and even on some TV shows.

This island is rich with coconut trees, pine trees, mangroves and shrubs that bears with colorful flowers.  Encircling the whole island is the shore with white sand beach covered with shells.  This island serves as the residence of Ate Mercy and her family.  They also created fish cages in the other side of the island that serves as their livelihood, aside from boating packages.  The residents go fishing, catching crabs and shrimps; they also raise hogs at their backyard for future purposes.

Ate Mercy's children living in the islands were also studying, but they need to take a boat just to get on the main land then to the school.  While we were in the bus going back to Manila, we passed beside the gate of the school, and if I'll be going to measure how far it is, I really don't know.
