The white sand, water in different hues  of blue, dazzling waves, native ambience and the welcoming smiles of the locals there made up this stunning island. We had our speed boat rides during our one day island hopping on the three renowned islets there: Guyam, Daku and Naked islet.  We also explored the natural pool at Magpupungko and witnessed the right-reef breaking and the surfing frontiers at Cloud 9. This four-day getaway lift up my spirit and prayed in awe that this will hopefully not the last.
