If you are especially interested in bird watching, check Alibijaban out. One of the additional activities you can experience on the island is to try their floating cottages. The area is a protected marine sanctuary and an amazing place to explore.

If you wish to stay on the island for more than a day, worry not; homestays and cottages are available for you to spend the night. A perk of being in Alibijaban is that you can go island hopping to see Burias Island in Masbate, which consists of several islets, including Sombrero Island, Dapa Tinalisayan Island, and Animasola Island.

Alabat Island

If you are looking for a spot that can take you to different places at once, Alabat would surely satisfy your wanderlust!

If you love the outdoors, you can go on a trek and witness the overflowing beauty of Tumiis Falls. Island life will not be complete without stuffing your stomach with fresh fish and seafood; however, in Alabat, you can have lunch in the middle of Lamon Bay on a floating cottage.

Aside from enjoying the Islands pride, none other than its spectacular beaches, there are other activities you can enjoy when you decide to visit the paradise, such as snorkeling, island hopping, camping, and picnics.
