If you're after a long, wide stretch of finely-powdered white-sand beach, go to Pangulasian to get your fix.

Pangulasian is managed by El Nido Resorts; visitors must get permission from the resort at Miniloc. Once you're there, you'll find that the island's long beach is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, beach sports, and viewing the sunset. The coral clusters along the beach attract loads of marine life, giving snorkelers an eyeful.

A walking trail snakes through the island's midsection, providing an unparalleled opportunity for birdwatching just after sunrise and immediately before sunset. At the end of the trail, you'll have reached the island's highest point - a great spot to view Bacuit Bay in 360 degrees.

Divers will want to visit the south and west of Pangulasian. The southern shores of Pangulasian are teeming with coral and fish between forty to sixty feet. West of Pangulasian, Jip Rocks retains its undersea beauty, despite some blast damage from dynamite fishing.
