Sandbar. (sānd’bär’)

Philippines has a lot to offer from its people’s hospitality and friendship to its different tourist destinations including  landscapes, world known species like Tarsiers, Philippine Tamaraw, Pandaka pygmaea, the smallest fish and so many others and of course, its breathtaking, beautiful beaches.
Following are just some of the God given paradise located in the Philippines and they are called Sandbars.  Sandbar. (sānd’bär’) A long mass or low ridge of submerged or partially exposed sand built up in the water along a shore or beach by the action of waves or currents.

This just sounds yummy to me. It sounds captivating and must-have feelings!! I am so fascinated whenever I look at them. They looked like a path to paradise. There is something really amazing in them. You may take a look…..

BULUBADIANGAN ISLAND
 
For rates and directions and how to get there:

If you are traveling to Iloilo by airplane, take taxi at the Iloilo Airport and go to Tagbak Bus Terminal in Iloilo City. The easiest way to go to the Concepcion from Iloilo City is to take a bus at Tagbak Bus Terminal. I couldn’t find the bus schedules online, so I got the information from the drivers at the terminal. They informed me that there is a bus going to Sara (11 km from Concepcion) or Concepcion every 30 minutes starting from 2:00 AM until 2:00 PM. When we got there, we had just missed the bus at 4:30 AM, but luckily for us there was a bus going to Sara also at 4:40 AM. The travel time is between 2.5-3 hours. When you arrive in Sara, take public jeepney going to Concepcion and drive until the final destination. The jeepney ride takes about 15-20 minutes.

Remember that the last bus from Concepcion back to Iloilo City leaves around 3:00-4:00 PM.

More Travel Tips:

1. Electricity runs only from 5 PM to 10 AM in the island.

2. Toilet and bathroom are available for guests’ comfort.

3. Water for bathing/washing is available for sale at P20.00 per container.

4. Drinking water is also for sale but expect it to be more expensive than if you buy it from mainland Concepcion.

5. Bulubadiangan is not the only island off the coast of Concepcion. The municipality is dotted with several other islands worthy of your visit. Negotiate with the boatman or ask the resort owner for the rates of island hopping.

VIRGIN ISLAND

Virgin Island is one of the several islands included in Bohol Government’s jurisdiction. It is located 15-20 minutes away from Panglao Island in the Philippines.
