Exploring the Next Boracay

Subic, Matnog, Sorsogon, Bicol, Philippines

Being a local of Sorsogon, I can’t help but write about our tourist spots in the province. Having already featured Bulusan Volcano Natural Park, this time is the so called, the next Boracay – Subic, Matnog, Sorsogon, Bicol, Philippines.

The beach in Subic, Matnog is almost like those found in Boracay, with powdered white beaches and pristine waters. One of their main attractions include the fish sanctuary and a hidden cave. My friend, Steve, who I said arranges local travels, assisted our colleagues from the INGO (International Non-Government Organization) here. They can’t help but enjoy every moment in the fish sanctuary.

Snorkeling is allowed inside the lagoon provided that they are not wearing any sunblock lotion. This is to protect the fishes from toxins. The lagoon has different kinds of aquatic species.

Aside from the Fish Sanctuary, there’s a hidden cave which you may explore. Inside is the very pristine waters and white sand. Sometimes, tourists had it all for themselves as it is isolated.

Boiled Crabs and Fried Squids

After swimming, a feast is partaken which usually include sea foods, spicy crabs and squids.

Exploring this secluded paradise, the interaction with the fishes at the fish sanctuary and the tour inside the cave would give you a one-of-a-lifetime experience. Steve, my friend, a colleague from the Spanish INGO I worked for more than 10 years would be happy to tour you around Bicol. When planning for a trip, consider, Subic, Matnog, Bicol, Philippines. Steve would be happy to serve you being the team leader of Bicolanong Rabas (Rabas as I translate is – Adventure Seekers).
