This island, which is connected to the larger Governors Island by 120-meter pontoon bridge and a 546-meter zipline, was named thus because it was previously untouchable, owing to a now long-gone colony of sea snakes that used to reside there. Now it's the perfect location to stretch out on the beach, have a picnic, or spend an idyllic night at it's guest house (PHP5,000, good for 8 pax). The reef surrounding it is currently being rehabilitated, but visitors can look forward to a special surprise: Inside a cave lies a gorgeous statue of a mermaid named Cyril, commissioned by the town's current Mayor, Arthur Celeste.
Named after another former Philippine president, Marcos island is home to comfortable accommodations (PHP5,000, good for 8 pax) and a welcoming stretch of beach that just begs for you to relax on it. A short trek will bring you to cliffs where you can literally take the 12 foot plunge. Don’t worry, the lagoon below, which is teeming with fish and other awesome aquatic creatures, averages around 12-feet deep depending on the tide, and opens out into the open water, where a quick swim will lead you back to the beach.
Sailing up to Quezon Island is enough to bring a smile on anyone’s face. A statue of former Philippine president Manuel Quezon welcomes all its visitors, while accommodations for rent sit comfortably on one of the island’s little perches. A mini zip line spans from one end of the island to another, while a two-floor restaurant caters to your every need and whim as you stretch out and relax on its pristine white sandbar.
