A lovely drive from Roxas City, past the fish ponds to Agojo village. A short boat ride out to the island. Beautiful white sand beaches perfect for relaxing or swimming. Take a picnic and lots to drink.

Olotayan is the only island barangay of Roxas city. It's nice for a day of island fun. It boasts of white coral like sandy shore. Make sure to wear your aqua shoes and bring loads of sunblock!
