"Mt. Guiting-Guiting is a sacred place. It does not belong to this present generation, nor to any other. Our ancestors taught us not to touch the sacred but to reverence it as a constant reminder that we are mere ephemeral creatures."


-Fr. Raymun Festin, SVD

The majestic Mt. Guiting-guiting proclaimed as Natural Park by the Philippine government: home to the world's densest forest and a plethora of  unnamed plant and animal species. Most difficult Philippine mountain to be climbed. Photo from http://homepage.hispeed.ch


Sibuyan Sea has rich marine biodiversity. It is largely unexplored by divers, but those lucky and adverturous enough to have ventured there report some tremendous diving.


The ever-flowing Cantingas River, the cleanest inland body of water in the Philippines as proclaimed by Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Here, you can swim with the fish and shrimps, and literally may drink the water where you swam.  Photo from www.geocities.com/cantingasriver


Cresta de Gallo is a kidney-shaped unexploited islet 45 minutes off Sibuyan Island. Cresta boasts a dazzling white-sand beach, vast coral reef teeming with colorful and breath-taking underwater life making it ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving, unusual volcanic rock formations, and most of all, serene and paradise-like surroundings thereby making your stay on the island, no matter how brief, a very memorable one.
