I was a bit skeptical on the thought that there is a virgin island. With the modern world we live, I was thinking every island is already commercialized, not to mention that this island is promoted by the Province of Bohol.
As we came near the island, we need to follow a certain sea-trail because the water is too shallow. The boatman is afraid the canoe might hit the chorals, a rock, or it may get stuck in the sand. We also have to pretend we are students going for a research because the island's care-taker says that they no longer allow tourist due to garbage issues. I am now sure if that is still the case though...hehe
|This is the port of the island. It is actually a sand-port...cool, right?|
|There is a spider on the biggest mangrove in the island. We were confused how he got there. It actually made me research about it, and found out that some insect can actually walk on water...strange, right?...hehe|
|Whenever I see this photo, it makes me sing. Finding love in a hopeless place. I know it's not hopeless but this beauty standing still alone in this place, extraordinary!|
|These are tiny little islets that is connected to the main island through a sand path. This extension made the island look like a boomerang. Be careful on the sea urchins though...hehe|
|These fellas are the culprit...hehe|
You can explore or walk the entire island in less than 15 minutes. That is how small it is. So, we did explore the island and have fun talking, taking photos, and just have fun with everything we see as we walk along....hehe
|Meet the invaders.|
|Poor starfish. This people might have been starving...tsk. tsk.|
|Now it's crying...hehe|
|We are hoping the mangroves can actually hid us from the camera....hehe|
|Our journey towards the strange islet.|
|I'm bleeding in love with v.island. I don't have a clue what this is up until now. I also want to leave it that way- a mystery. I was a bit scared the first time I saw this...hehe|
|Someone is checking out his Google Map. Searching where on earth we are. I bet he is not successful...hehehe|

We made sure we left nothing but footprints. We took nothing but photos, and we kill nothing but time. We should promote island preservation such as this for our future. This island is certainly an epitome of beauty. Nature at it's best, i must say...xoxo!
Next stop: Yum yum yum!
