Join this island hopping and marine sanctuary adventure in one of Bicol’s emerging tourist destinations, Matnog in Sorsogon. You will explore Tikling Island and Juag Island, teeming with beautiful sceneries and natural life. This 12-hour excursion includes a packed lunch, two-way transfers, and boat and tour guide services.
A tour vehicle will give you a lift from Donsol, Sorsogon going to the port of Matnog. Here, a boat will be waiting for you to bring you to your first stop, which is Tikling Island.
Tikling Island is home to a stunning beach with pinkish-white sand, thanks to finely crushed red corals that are sprinkled with white powdery sand. The waters around the island are so clear that it’s possible for you to see the ocean floor with your naked eye while you’re swimming here. Tikling Island is also draped with lush verdant vegetation, so don’t miss out on taking pictures of this paradise-like tourist destination.
You will then go to Juag Island, a marine sanctuary for various species of fish. With waters so clear, you don’t need snorkeling gear to have a look at them.
You can also feed the fishes if you want. Just make sure to give them only fish pellets that can be bought at the entrance. This responsible act can help with the conservation efforts being done for the aquatic creatures in the area.
Ask your guide if swimming is permitted since there are times when there are too many guests, which might scare the fishes away.
The lagoon that surrounds the Juag Island Fish Sanctuary is a beauty in itself, too. You’ll really feel close to nature, so take the time to enjoy the incredible scenery.
After you’ve had your fill of adventure at the waters, you will return to the port, where your vehicle is ready to bring you back to your hotel in Donsol.
