Crystal Clear water of Sombrero Island | Burias Island

Sombrero Island
Crossing the waters of Burias Passage from Tinalisayan to Sombrero was a heart pounding experience. Not only that, as we were getting nearer to the shoreline,  coral ecosystems and underwater flora and fauna are visible because of its clear waters. I took off my pink sando while on the boat because my skin hurts, a sign that, for sure, I will have sun kissed skin due to sun burn but it's fine, am positive that my skin will still recover after a week. Instead of covering myself or applying Belo sun block before jumping off the boat to the shallow water, we just grabbed our cameras and proceeded walking by the shore.

Fine White Sandbar of Tinalisayan | Burias Island

Tinalisayan Island
Tinalisayan Island was our second destination during our Alibijaban to Burias Islands escapade. Traveling from Animasola to this island takes an hour but among the three islands we visited (with Animasola and Sombrero Island) this is irrevocably number one. When I jumped off the boat and landed on the shallow crystal clear water, I easily felt the relaxing feeling because the water was really cool, a contrary to the heat and UV rays from the sun. Our boat was parked by the tip of the sandbar, so walking on the long stretch of a fine and powdery  white sand, with the other visitors on their colorful swimming attire, was just awesome! This long sandbar always greet the visitors with breathtaking beauty.

Gigantic Beauty of Animasola Island

Animasola Island
Animasola Island is one of the sun-drenched islets of Burias Group of Islands in San Pascual, Masbate. We traveled 3 hours via motorized banca from Alibijaban Island, San Andres, Quezon just to witness the magnificence of nature curved on the gigantic rock, perched into the water.  Just the journey itself while crossing the sea, with the huge waves, was remarkable. Our motorized banca was like hopping on and off the huge waves. From afar, Animasola looks ordinary, same as with the islets we've visited, however, as we were getting nearer, the view was just astounding because of its unique formation.

The Beauty of Alibijaban and Burias Islands

Alibijaban Island
Alibijaban (locally pronounced as Alibihaban) is a tourist island situated in San Andres, Quezon; a 9 to 10 hours travel from Manila. It might be a time consuming travel, but expect that you'll be rewarded with a breathtaking beauty. The island has a fine white sand shoreline with trees, bangcas, and local cottages. Mixed on the fine white sand are small living crustaceans and sea shells, sea shells by the sea shore. The cool emerald crystal clear water is rich with underwater bio-diversity, such as fish, colorful star fish in different sizes and appearance, and many more.
