I was captivated by the beauty of nature, the serenity of the entire island, except those who were singing in karaoke; the hospitality of the people (they're very accommodating and friendly). Our island hopping on our second day there was so cool! You will see the blue-green and even the blue part of the sea as you ride thru motor... More

Apart from I love the nice, tranquil, unspoiled island, the one other thing that this place stand out is its people. No matter which hotel/resort you stay, people here treat you as their guest. Even the dogs here are friendly! They are nice enough to keep me company.

I was invited by former workmates in this place and we spent just the weekend for this getaway. I've been here about 5 years ago and I can say that the place has quite improved as I saw new resorts being established in the place. We stayed at the Playa Amara Resort which is kinda modernized in terms of architecture... More

It's very far from Manila but when you arrive it's all paid off. We stay somewhere in Maniwaya and I find the beach close to perfection. What I hated there was the Huge wave when we returned to the island we stayed but overall it's amazing.

Maniwaya Island in Marinduque is like a mysterious woman.. whom you cant really pinpoint whats good with her or whats not... Ok lets look at the good side. It's quiet. Not to many people go there. It has a beautiful sunset. It has a very nice view of the Milky Way!!!! (That made my experience worth memorable). The sandbar is... More
