Have you ever wondered how would it feel like to be at the southermost part of the Phils where Brunei and Indonesia looks like a stone-away from the map?

It took us 1.5 hours from the port to reach the island. You will experience the vastness of the ocean, Celebes Sea at that, stilt houses and some islets on your way there.

Panampangan Island in Tawi-Tawi is the longest sandbar in the country. It stretches upto 3 kilometers and connects to its nearby island. It's so beautiful. I hope the photos would do justice but I tried to capture it the best way I can. The island has remained inhabitated and with very minimal infrastructures. There were just 3 cottages and a restroom for male and female. Access to clean water is a challenge so you would need to get water from the ocean should you need to use the toilets.

It was around 10am when we arrived and we took our time walking by the beach and going at the far end of the sandbar. Rested below a huge tree where we ended having a nap. 12:30pm was time for lunch and it was a seafood feast. We had crabs, squid and different types of fish that are so huge! This was also about the time when it started to be low tide and the whole island became even more breathtaking! From the powder-like white sand, starfishes and sun dollars that you can now clearly see from the sand. That was the time when we saw that two islands connected by the sandbar! Amazing! What a beautiful country we are blessed to have! How I wish I could share more than 10 photos!

Oh and the best part, It was my first time to wear my |looloo shirt and I made sure that it will be at one of the best place of the country! Shoutout to Peanut D and Roegan T 🧡128536128523 Ahem! Pa-gc naman dyan! bwahahaha! 128514
