One of the best beaches in the Philippines. No matter the tide Daku is always a great place to swim. Rent a kubo on the beach and have the local fishermen cook up some of their fresh catch. There is also a few good surf break at Daku so it’s a great place for a combo day-trip of surf and beach!
A nice place to go to in the afternoon and evening. It has a nice beach for swimming, a public market, long pier to sit and watch the sunset. It is also the one of Lay Lay’s BBQ and a couple karaoke bars that can be as fun as they are annoying. Still its a great place to see the island life and partake is some partying with the locals. This is also the place to get a night burger when everything else closed.
The lagoon is beautiful with crystal clear water and high surrounding hills that keep it secluded and calm. Perfect for snorkeling and lounging in the two story kubo that sits right on the water.

A maze-like place consisting of limestone islets, where the only way in or out is the cave entrance that vanishes during high tide. Another must see is the jellyfish lagoon, home to millions stingless, friendly and playful jellyfish comparable to those in Palau. With its unique seascape and landscape, the place promises everyone a truly unforgettable, enchanting and extraordinary experience.
At the northern tip of the island are the Taktak waterfalls. A perfect stop when touring the island on motorbike or by car. Cool fresh water runs down a high cliff into a Filipino style pool, many locals hang out here and jump from cliffs and trees into the refreshing waters below, just be aware that it’s not very deep in case you should be lured into a dive.
