For a quick laid back getaway, me and my friends opted to visit Alibijaban (Ali-bi-ha-ban) Island. When you look at the map it was located on the southern tip of Quezon, a tiny island. It was hours away from Masbate too.

The island is remote, their electricity is from their solar panels. Water was fetch to each house but on some areas there was a long hose that was passed along the residences.

Accommodation:
You can choose to pitch your tent or rent their kubo. We choose the tent, and it was fine. Water supply is can be ordered, 150 per big container drums. Dont expect for a luxurious stay because the island is not made for that. If you want to relax and really get away from Manila and stressful environment, this is a good place to visit.

Food:
You can bring and cook your own or the locals are happy to cook for you, just tell them what you want and how you wanted your food. Pay them and give a little some extra 128522.

Tour:
You can rent a boat for touring around the island, it was a 2 hour ride. You will visit some place where you can snorkel but be cautious about sea urchins! Also dont forget to visit the mangroves and sand bar!

Travel
From Alabang, it was a 6 to 7 hours drive and 15 minutes boat ride.

The island was huge, the water in front of our kubo was clear and clean! We really had fun enjoying the beach and sand!

Alibijiban Island is an island in San Andres, Quezon which is 10-11 hours away from Manila. The long travel time is totally worth it because you'll get to enjoy the clear waters, fine sand, relaxing scenery, and the sandbar during the low tide. There is also a part of that island where you can find mangroves. The island is not yet discovered by a lot of people so it is not crowded yet. Some bring their tents and camp out, while the others just choose rent nipa huts during their stay. You can enjoy playing different sports in the island like frisbee, or volleyball since they have net there. :)

Isla Alibijaban - Wilderness Area. A secluded island. White sand. A mangrove forest. Travelling to Alibijaban maybe long and grueling (4 -5 hours air-conditioned bus, another 8 hours ordinary bus and 30 minutes boat ride). But once you're there, the place will simply take your breath away.

The most memorable trip I've had so far this year. We didn't mind the almost 10 hour travel time since the island was so beautiful. Best I've seen this year. Fine cream sand. Softer and more fine than the sands of Boracay (as per my companions).

Borawan was our initial plan. Last minute Alibijaban, an island at the southern most part of Quezon became our destination. It was only supposed to be an overnight trip. But the island was so beautiful, we all stayed another night without hesitation.

I fell in love with the island and the cheeful locals. We decided to bring school supplies for the kids. We had fun playing games with them and making them smile. I even danced budots with them! Haha.

The mangrove area was really nice as well. Nice to lay down in the shallow water underneath the shade of the mangroves.

This will be another destination that I will go back to in a heartbeat!

Budget:
Bus to Lucena and back - 418
Van to San Andres and back - 600
Boat - 1700/9pax
Overnight fee: 100/night
Up to you on how much you want to spend on food.
