Donsol

Donsol, located in Sorsogon, is known for its beautiful bodies of water and whale watching activities. Head the local village in Donsol and swim with the Butanding, a whale shark, said to be one of the gentlest creatures of their species. Visit the Donsol River in the afternoon and find the perfect spot to watch the sunset, or simply enjoy a cruise on its waters. Wait until it gets dark and you will see the fireflies.

Island hopping is also a must-do in the area — visit Tikling Island for a good snorkeling session, or camp on Subic Beach in Calintaan Island and explore its underwater caves. Both islands also have pink sand. Go to the Juag Lagoon Fish Sanctuary to get a closer look of different marine life in the area; you also have the option to swim with them if you wish. Visit the Irosin town and enjoy its natural spring water at the Mateo Hot and Cold Springs or the Mapaso Spring to relax and unwind.

Dive in the famous Manta Bowl, known to be the Manta Ray Capital of the Philippines. It is also home to many unique species of marine life that make it a must-visit for anyone with an interest in marine studies. Hike up Mt. Bulusan; once you finally reach the summit, you’ll get to enjoy a view of the Pacific Ocean and the West Philippine Sea. For those who want to explore more of the area’s history and culture, go to St. Joseph Parish Church in Barcelona town and admire its architecture, or head to Juban’s Old Houses, where you can admire their antique furniture and collections.
