Burias Group of Island, San Pascual, Masbate, Philippines


 


After xx years of planning, finally I am able to visit the island and ticking off this on my bucket list. It was way back 2012 I think since we had our Alibijaban Island trip, wherein the place is not yet highly known that time. We only have limited time that is why we were not able to visit Sombrero Island. At last, this 2017, we were able to see it and some of the other islands Burias has to offer.
Good thing that even is its summer time, the place is still not too crowded when we get there.

We joined a group tour in order to save some money. Thanks to JaVee of GalaPH. I first met him when we did our North Caraga trip (Butuan, Surigao, Siargao, Dinagat Islands). We joined forces together with their group to be able to save money. Now he has his own travel agency named GalaPH. So proud of him!

The hosted meals I must say are very delicious! It's a buffet as well so you can eat as long as there are available food in your group's table.

We were not able to do the cliff jump because the waves that time. However, the view up when we climb was amazing. Check out the little video I made to document our trip.

  3. Wow, truly Burias Island in Masbate should be on everyone's bucket list. I like how cloistered the place and the water is so teal and full of life. I haven't been here, but this will surely be penned on my bucket list. Thank you so much for sharing your itinerary with us as well, it would be really a great help.
