Sunkissed. Sunburnt. Suntanned.
I am writing this post today still bearing the ache of first degree sunburns I’ve got from a long trip I made to one destination in my Island Mindanao that I have long wanted to visit. But these itches and pains are worth it knowing I was able to realize one dream – to finally set foot in the southernmost islands of the whole Davao Region, the three islands of Municipality of Sarangani in Davao Del Sur.
Do not be confused. I am not referring to Manny Pacquiao’s Sarangani Province but to this town more popularly known as Balut Island.
Have you ever seen a boiling hotspring no one dares to swim or bathe? Have you ever witnessed a huge colony of flyingfox bats flying out of dusk? Or seacows playing freely underwater? Have you ever wandered around to a 17-hectare oval-shape island surrounded purely by sparkling white sands?
These are the many things to savor and enjoy in the side of the Philippine Archipelago. These are among the many reasons why I got sunkissed, sunburnt, suntanned while relishing every single moment I stayed at Sarangani.
Join me as I chronicle my JOURNEY TO THE SOUTHERMOST ISLANDS OF DAVAO REGION.
