Ride with Me in Masbate, Masbate!

Summer 2013
Masbate, Masbate

Only one province left in Luzon to visit.

Masbate is known as the "Rodeo country in the Philippines". The major source of livelihood are copra, mining, and cattle rustling.

How to get there
By Air – Zest air or PAL Express –

By Sea – Super Shuttle RoRo , Trans Asia, Star Home, Montenegro Lines, Medallion

By Land – Roro Bus, Mega Bus, 

There are so many tourist spots in Masbate alone. But due to lack of time, I was able to visit only some of the spots.

I hired a Mang Ramon (0930-707-3396), a habal-habal, for P800.00 and engaged in a 4-hour tour of Masbate, Masbate.

First stop - Gold Beach Resort

Second stop - Coco View Lagoon

       Third stop - Binuot Beach Resort

Beach swimming – Adult P50/Kids P30
Swimming pool –  Day P60/ Night P70
Rooms  -   VIP Room – P1,800
                Aircon room – P1,500
                Non-aircon – P1,000
                Duplex – P800
Cottages – P100

And I saved the best for the last - 
Buntod Sandbar and Marine Sanctuary

I hired a boat ride to the sandbar for P500.00 and the boat ride to the island is good for 10-15 minutes only. It is very near to the coastline of Masbate. Once you are there, it is Paradise! You can even trek, swim or snorkel at the nearby magrove in the reef.

Once you are in Masbate, you can hop either to Ticao Island; Bulan, Sorsogon; Pilar Sorsogon; or Pio Duran, Sorsogon.  Should you have questions relative to the boatride to Ticao Island or Bulan, you can ask Apple of Kooperatiba Boat (0910-737-7715).

Should you have questions relative to tourism, you can ask Mr Marlon C. Serrano (City      Tourism Officer) at 056-582-0781 / 056-333-5608.

It's More Fun in Masbate!
