Maniwaya, Marinduque: Day 2 (Island Hopping and Visiting Ungab Rock Formation!)

If you can remember my first post about our Maniwaya island travel in Marinduque, well here is my second and continuation post. It is all about our second and third day in Maniwaya, Marinduque. The first thing that we did on our second day was we woke up as early as 6:00 am because we have a call time at 6:30 am for our island hopping. If you’re wondering why it’s too early, it is because we want to see the beautiful Palad sandbar. The boatmen told us that it is better to go there in the morning when the tide is low. We took our phone, sunscreen, and snacks and go straight to the boat.

We went to Palad sandbar and we took some amazing photos there. By the way, we rented the boat for 1,500 pesos. We’ve met a nice couple from Germany and asked them if they also want to go island hopping that day and they said yes. We split the boat rent for four persons. (I guess that’s how you should do when you’re travelling on a budget.) The sandbar was gorgeous and it has a white sand surrounded by crystal-clear water.

After we’re done taking pictures and appreciating the beauty of Palad sandbar, we went to the boat and they took us to the amazing Ungab rock formation. It is a small island in Maniwaya, Marinduque with beautiful rock formations. I don’t know how to describe it but we had a good time taking pictures there. I also saw that there was a hotel (if I’m not mistaken) or private resort near to it. The water was clear and the shore has many cute seashells.

We went back to Wawie’s Beach Resort after we’re done with the Ungab rock formation. We just took a rest, had lunch and just stay on the nipa hut near the beach. Maniwaya island is good for you if you’re looking for a relaxing and peaceful kind of beach. There’s no nightlife there but you will appreciate it if you just want to relax and breath your stress away from work and anything that makes you feel insane. Marinduque is my hometown and I can’t wait to blog more about the beautiful places that you can visit there! We spent the third day travelling back home.
