|boat going to Tres Reyes Islands in Barangay Pinggan|
From Boac, you have to ride another jeepney going to Gasan. Fare is P35.00. More specifially you have to alight at Purok Castillo, Barangay Pinggan. Travel time from Boac is more or less 1.5 hours.
Aside from Bellarocca and Maniwaya Island, Tres Reyes Islands is a famous island hopping destination in Marinduque. It is under the jurisdiction of the town of Gasan. The islands' names are Gaspar, Melchor, and Baltazar. But only Gaspar has a white-sand beach. The two others contain only steep cliffs and rock formations.
From Barangay Pinggan, we tried to rent a boat going to the said islands.

This cave is the largest among all the caves on the island and Kagawad Dodong shared there were burial remains recovered from the said cave.
|approaching Melchor Island|
We did not dock at Melchor Island because it was already raining. Instead, we decided to go to Baltazar Island.
Baltazar Island is known as an excellent diving spot in the area. It has also an underwater cave that you can explore.
We did not also dock at Baltazar Island due to the sudden change of the weather. Instead, we decided to go back to the docking area in Barangay Pinggan.
From the docking area, we decided to go to another tourist spot in the area. We boarded a jeep to the town of Buenavista.
|Malbog Sulfur Spring|
In the town of Buenavista, we rented a tricycle ride to Malbog Sulfur Spring. We rented it for P80.00 for our round trip ride. Normal fare is P15/pax to the area. It is about 2 kilometers from the town proper.
Malbog Sulfur Spring is located at the base of Mt. Malindig. The sulfur spring smells like an egg and the smell stays in your body for quite some time.
We took only souvenir pictures and decided to go to our next stop.
|Hot Spring Resort|
Our second to the last stop was the Hot Springs in the same area. It is located about a kilometer away from Malbog Sulfur Spring.
Rates are as follows in the hot spring:
