To Do List: 
  • Sign up for Tours A, B, C, and/or D, offered at shops in town. These tours are full days, including a beach buffet lunch, and are the best way to explore the surrounding islands and beaches. Tip: Head to The Alternative for your tour. Top notch service and lunches!
  • Hike the Taraw cliff (with a guide) to reach the best vantage point for Bacuit Bay. 
  • Go diving! Some of the best diving spots in the world with amazing visibility and marine life.
