Are you feeling uninspired? Are you lost, maybe? Start an escapade and experience a laidback retreat at San Bernandino Island!
San Bernandino Island, reminiscent of Batanes, is a must place to visit for people who wish to see an astounding view of the endless horizon of the Pacific Ocean. If you are looking for a place so secluded that you can scream your lungs out without the worry of anyone hearing, then San Bernandino Island is the perfect place for you.
Experience the turquoise-colored, almost crystal water surrounding the island and dive deep in the ocean with your full-on scuba gear to see a splendid view of the undisturbed aquatic life of the sea. If you are a little bit daring and unfazed by the extreme heights, you can climb to the top of the lighthouse to enjoy a spectacular view of the entire landmass of the island. You may also sit at the cliff’s edge with your friends or loved ones and watch deeply as the sun succumbs to nothingness and the stars start to appear.
How to go to San Bernandino Island? Take a fifty-minute drive from Sorsogon City to Bulusan, Sorsogon. Once descended, traverse on a one-and-a-half-hour boat ride to the island of San Bernandino. Be cautious! The sea trip isn’t for the faint-hearted if you have motion sickness and dread the uncalm waves of the sea. Maybe you have to take a second guess planning this trip, but for those who like to seek challenges and are up for a little thrill, don’t miss the opportunity to experience the alluring beauty of San Bernandino Island!
