cast away in colibra


A short boat ride from Tambobong (just about 20-22 minutes) is a small island called Colibra Island. Its also called "Snake Island" by some because of the sizable population of sea snakes there (we found none, our guide said its best to do sea snake hunting at night). See large version panorama here.

Its such a small island I can't even see it in Google Earth, but its a very nice place to get marooned in (at least for the day). The northwest side of the island is the best place for swimming and sunbathing. Be prepared for a good tan since the island offers very little shade.
We got the whole island for ourselves that day. The sky was amazingly blue and the wind a bit chilly (Colibra is in South China sea).
All sides of the island offer scenic views. Colibra is a must-visit if you happen to wander around the vicinity of Tambobong.

thankfully walang sea snakes. I really don't care to go sea snake hunting at any time of the day or night. ;) Great stitch for the panoramic view of the island!

we were there last april 22, the island itself is a must visit when you're in dasol, but there's a bit of disappointment when we got there, lot's of trash...
result of the power of internet,
more and more irresponsible people are discovering such place.

risa, that is sad! last time I was there they were starting to build some cottages on the east side of the island. the trash must be the result of the Holy Week crowd. The island is one of the more popular destinations, but there are other destinations there that are still virtually untouched.

bakit ganun no? you would want to share your experiences of what is naturally beautiful to behold so you post it sa web. tapos pag napuntahan na ng tao, i just don't get it. di ko nilalahat pero may ibang tao talaga na walang pakialam. ang attitude niya, care ko lang, problema na ng susunod sakin yan. is that typically pinoy o common yan sa lahat ng race?
