We weren't able to book for the resorts pumpboat because the one we contacted eventually did not book for us. So instead we tried looking for one outside the resort and paid php1,500 (its not a...

The best-kept secret of the province. It will instantly give you an impression that it is an untouched destination. Crystal clear waters, fine powdery sand, pure solitary experience. It was never crowded as we were lone wanderers in every island/islets we visit.

Britania Group of Islands is a best destination for vacation. It is located in the Britania, San Agustin, Surigao del Sur. These islands are comparable if not more beautiful than any other island in Asia. Here you can savor the very fresh sea foods on earth. Swimming is not dangerous as the contour of the sea bed is plain to... More

One of the country's newer destinations. Go on a boat trip to visits several islands. You will get limestone outcrops with vegetation, white sandy beaches, another with a stretch of coconut trees swaying in the breeze, and one with just blinding white sand. Marvelous! Visit these island before the horde arrives.

If you are in Surigao Del Sur, include this in your itinerary. The reason was this group of islands is just a 15-30 minute boat ride from your resort (provided that your in britania too). They are tiny islands which you can enjoy privacy. The color of the sea is amazing from deep blue color to sea foam :) There... More

We explored east Mindanao and stopped for a night at the Britania Islands. Wow, so wonderful. The sea was great for bathing. We took a boat tour for the islands and stopped at some of them. THe sea was nice but we couldn't find much in it. Maybe the fish and corals were on holiday. You really MUST go there.... More
