Nearby attractions

Hundred Islands: Quezon Island
0.62 km away

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.

Hundred Islands: Virgin Island
1.89 km away

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.

Hundred Islands: Governor's Island
2.08 km away

A couple of fun facts: This island is also known as Primicias Island, duly named after a former Governor, and is home to what the locals fondly call the PBB house, so named for the 2-room guest house for rent that local stars stayed at during one of the show’s previous seasons. For those interested in sleeping over on this little piece of paradise, the PBB house can accommodate 8 people for only PHP5,000 per night, but there are also 11 gazebos for rent throughout the island for only PHP600 per day. Adventure seekers can make the 380-step climb up to the 546-meter zipline that connects it to Virgin Island, or cross the 120-meter pontoon bridge. There’s also a viewing deck which provides spectacular views of the Hundred Islands National Park, along with a breathtaking statue of Joseph the Carpenter by the sculptor Cyril.
