Wandering in Tikling Island, SorsogonBy Wanderingjoshua
It wasn't far from Subic Beach so we didn't have to wait long before docking. The beach was very similar to the one in Subic. The pinkish, soft sand was something we were getting used to. But behind the coconut trees were different rock formations which were the highlight of this island.
There was a short trek through a forested area before reaching the rock formations. Behind the trees stood large, black rock formations reminiscent of Biri (for me at least).
The picturesque rock formations were something else. They are just big, black rocks but their rawness and natural beauty were something to look at.
This rock formation looks like a throne.
Underwater on Tikling Island
Aside from the rock formations, Tikling Island presented itself as a viable snorkeling spot with many colorful corals and rocks.
We didn't have any gear with us that's why I settled taking photos of the nearby corals, which were just by the rock formations. I didn't have to venture out to capture these colorful corals. Sir Alex told us that this side of the island was a prime snorkeling spot..
Visiting Sorsogon has been a revelation. There are many beautiful spots on this side of the Philippines which are underdeveloped. As always there are ways to develop a place without harming the ecosystem or casting people aside. Aside from the beautiful locations around this province (which are plenty, I haven't even been to the other parts yet), the people had a connection with each other that was endearing.
The long ride all the way from the northern part of Sorsogon to the end of Luzon was worth it.
How to get to Tikling Island
The trip to Tikling Island was included in our day tour of Juag Lagoon and Subic Beach. Sir Alex allowed us to rent his boat and services for only P1,000. You can contact him through 09183045437.
We caught the last ride from Matnog at 4:30PM to Sorsogon City where we had to catch the last van at 7PM to Legazpi, Albay.
