Explore the sights and heritage of northeastern Albay in this whole-day tour that includes hotel transfers within Legazpi City. You’ll be visiting museums, churches, and local specialty shops in this 8-hour tour, where you’ll also have a chance to experience the refreshing waters of Busay Waterfalls and Black Sand Beach. Complimentary refreshments, entrance and parking fees, and the services of a tour guide are also included in this tour.
Your driver will be picking you up from your accommodation in Legazpi City and bring you to Mayon Rest House, which is also known as Mayon Skyline View Deck. Since this nature park is located on the eastern slope of the Mayon Volcano, it’s one of the best places to see and take pictures of the volcano’s majestic beauty.
Next, you’ll learn about the local culture with a visit to Tiwi Pottery, featuring a huge collection of vases and jars, as well as the National Museum, which showcases Bicol’s heritage and geological history.
You’ll then visit Tabaco City Church, which is one of the national cultural treasures found in Bicol, along with Daraga Church and Cagsawa Ruins. This church has been constructed using volcanic soil and rocks with a rococo bell tower that serves as the distinguishing feature of the church. You’ll also step inside Tabaco Cutlery where you’ll get to know the art of making steel cutlery, a popular industry in the town of Tabaco.
Your next stop is at Busay Waterfalls, which is located in Malilipot town in Albay. Considered as one of the highest waterfalls in the Philippines, Busay Falls involves a short and easy trek. Once you reach the site, you’ll find natural pools with cool, clear waters so dive in for a refreshing dip.
Afterward, you’ll find souvenir items to bring home at the Handicrafts Factory before going to Black Sand Beach, a long stretch of shoreline where the rolling waves of water from the Albay Gulf and jet-black sand from Mayon Volcano’s past eruptions meet. It’s a rare and charming sight, so be sure to take pictures for your Albay travel photo album.
You’ll also visit the centuries-old Sto. Domingo Church as well as a local paper-products factory, which features handcrafted goods made of strong indigenous materials like abaca.
Your last stop is at Typhoon Reming Shrine, a memorial park dedicated to Albayanos who perished from a devastating typhoon in November 2006. At the end of your tour, you’ll be dropped off back to your hotel in Legazpi City.
