Island Hopping

Burias Group of Islands : Sombrero πŸ’š Tinalisayan πŸ’š Animasola Island  🏝 

Just when I thought Calaguas will always be my number 1 until I came face to face with Burias group of Islands.

​Kailangan mo ihanda ang sarili mo sa mahaba habang paglalakbay, a 5 – 6 hrs bus ride and 2.5 – 3 hrs boat ride.

You have two options on how to get here, first you could take the Pasacao in Naga Bicol or like we did the San Andres Quezon jump off point.

We hired a boat to take us in Sombrero Island resort and for our island tour as well. Since it was a Holyweek rampa,maaga kame umalis​ to catch the 4 PM bus schedule with direct route at San Andres Quezon. Unluckily we didn’t make it hahaha

So ang ending namin, sa JAM liner ulit kame. Medyo love na talaga namin si JAM liner hehehe

From Lucena grand Terminal, chance passenger kame kasi around 7 pm na kame dumating dun, Wala na din mga van na bumibyahe papunta dun and besides 5 lang kasi kame. Balak pa sana namin mag dinner muna habang waiting na may dumaang bus ng biglang dumaan yung superlines hehe punuan na pero may mga vacant na ilan. SO ayun we grabbed the opportunity kahit na standing ovation kame kesa naman mag hintay kame ng until morning sa Lucena grand.

Around 2 AM kame dumating sa San Andres too early for our boat ride​.

Good thing maganda at safe sa San Andres Port….Nakakaen at nakatulog pa kame…Sunrise πŸŒ… na ng magising kame, may mga ilang turista na din ang dumating…

Good morning…β˜€

Around 7 AM na din kame nakaalis ng port, hinintay pa namin sila kuya na mamili ng mga kakailanganin daw sa isla..

Medyo malayo ang sombrero island resort, about 2.5 hours ang byahe pero super sulit naman 🚣

The next day pumunta naman kame sa Sombrero Island.

Swimming sa katirikan ng araw hahaha

Super ganda at super linaw ng tubig sa dagat, kung marunong lang sana ako lumangoy baka tumalon na ako.

Super ganda ng Burias as in OA sa ganda. Sana hindi ito masira at mapabayaan.

Brunch…

Bago kame bumalik ng San Andres Port dumaan pa kame sa Dapa Island or mas kilala sa tawag na Snake Island 🐍 . Na feature na ito ni Drew and during their visit marami silang nakita na mga sea snakes at other kind of snakes. Kaya nga medyo nag doubt ako at sianabi ko pa kay kuya Dodong na kahit hindi na kame idaan dun. Pero mapilit si Kuya, pagsisisihan daw namin kapag hindi namin nakita. Dapa island daw ang pinaka maganda sa lahat, iniisip ko nga parang ang OA naman ni Kuya hehe pero yung mga nakausap din namin sa San Andres napaka ganda daw talaga ng Dapa Island. 

Dapa island from afar…Iniisip ko that time mas amazing pa din si Animasola pero nung nakalapit na kame…OMG…totoo pala…Ang ganda ng Dapa at gusto ko mag sisi kung bakit nagpalit na kame ng mga damit…Hindi tuloy kame naka akyat sa taas at hindi kame nakaligo…

Wala naman kame nakitang snakes sa paligid…isang side palang to ng Dapa anu pa kaya kung nasa taas kame…Super breathtaking ang peg dun…

Mga 2 hours or higit pa yung byahe namin pabalik sa port at gusto pa nila kuya bangkero na idaan kame sa Pulo or mas kilala sa tawag na Alibijaban island…Hindi na kame nagpadaan kasi nakapunta na kame dun…Ang bait ng bangkero namin superb…

Going back to reality…Dumaan muna sa Church β›ͺ before heading back home..🏑

πŸš— How to :

DIY : You have two option, first direct route to San Andres Quezon via Superlines in Cubao or Barney bus in Alabang (Kindly check their website for schedules). Or take a bus going to Lucena Grand Terminal (JAC Liner. JAM Liner or Lucena Lines). From Lucena Grand Terminal meron van or bus na papuntang San Andres port. Kung umaga kayo darating ussually 9 AM to 10 AM umaalis yung van or kung madami naman kayo pede na kayo umalis agad. Kung sa gabi naman katulad namin chance passenger sa darating na bus. Swerte lang kame kasi may dumaan na superlines pero medyo puno kaya hiwa hiwalay kame at yung iba nasa aisle. From San Andres port dun na kayo magpa sundo sa mga contacts nyo.
