I have been to Capiz twice. But the last time I was in this part of Western Visayas was in 2009 when Roxas City, known to for its moniker as the Seafood Capital of the Philippines, hosted the Western Visayas Tourism Assembly.
There were some attempts on my part, go return to Roxas, but never pushed through. Then last month, i was scheduled to go to Antique. Funny thing is, Roxas, Capiz was originally not part of the plan, but yeah, it pushed through!
It’s the last full day of our Bicolandia Adventure with the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA).
We woke up a little bit early, had our usual breakfast then rode the coach. Nah, we won’t be doing another rolling tour. We’re off to another paradise.
This time, we’re bound for Misibis Bay Resort in Cagraray Island Bacacay Albay!!!
It’s the second day of our Media Familiarization Tour sponsored by the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA).
We woke up a little bit early and traveled from Sorsogon City to the town of Matnog, Sorsogon.
Long before, I know knew Matnog as a port town. This is where the bus from mainland Luzon bound for Visayas gets loaded to RORO vessels and travel to Allen Samar. Matnog
But it was only recently that I discovered that Matnog also has its own charms. Little did I know that it has also its own fair share of paradise. A paradise just waiting to be discovered.
While I was in Romblon, I got the chance to visit the Looc Marine Sanctuary. It is located in the town of Looc in the island of Tablas.
The Marine Sanctuary is 48 hectares wide. According one of the Looc Baywatch member who accompanied us, the sanctuary has been opened to the public since 1999.
Before heading out into the waters, we proceeded to the office of the Looc Baywatch Task Force for a short briefing and pay the entrance fees. Entrance to the Marine Sanctuary is PHP100. Snorkel rental is at PHP50.
