Maniwaya Tour - 2 Days

Palad Sand Bar Maniwaya Island Santa Cruz Marinduque_2

Maniwaya Island is part of the town of Santa Cruz in Marinduque province and is less than an hour of boat ride away from the main island. It is surprisingly undeveloped with only a handful of resorts lined along its shores of rough coral stones and white sugary sands. Its water is teeming with life although negative effects of cyanide and dynamite fishing in the past are still very much evident in one too many dead corals scattered in its ocean floor. Its rustic vibe and tranquil state are its most redeeming qualities. Plus, it is totally off the path and uncrowded so you are guaranteed to have that patch of sand to frolic under the sun with for that much needed tan.

You will definitely enjoy your stay in Maniwaya island as there are plenty of activities that you could do.

Day 1

Check out Palad Sand Bar – Not only is Maniwaya Island a great place to get a respite out of the bustle but it also offers some spectacular sites such as the long stretch of sugary white sands in Palad Sand Bar.

Ungab Rock Formation – Sail to the amazing rock formation and beach in Ungab Rock.

Snorkel – Illegal methods of fishing was rampant in this side of the country in the past but it’s still nice to see the surviving underwater ecology in the waters of Marinduque.

Try water activities – If you are the type who easily gets bored with just frolicking at the beach then don’t fret. Water activities such as banana boating, kayaking, jet skiing and paddle boarding are offered in some resorts within the island.

Do unlimited photo ops – The place is absolutely stunning! You can get as much dose of those Instagram worthy photos as you like.

Test the waters – You’re at the beach babe! What else to do then? You gotta swim!

Just frolic under the sun – Nothing beats relaxing by the beach, just watching the tides and the blue skies and simply letting time pass by.

Sunset watching – Maniwaya Island has one of the most spectacular sunsets in the country so spending quiet moments by the beach while watching the harmonious color of the breezy afternoon collide as the sun bids the day goodbye is always a perfect way to cap off one eventful day.
