Quezon Island Hopping Adventure

After giving you a gazillion of photos of the 3 islands we visited in Quezon, it’s now time to provide more details of my adventure. Been receiving loads of inquiries about this travel so here it is.


Getting There

We rented 3 vans to accommodate all of us. The vans include drivers for a worry-free travel. I was not the one who contacted the van rental so I can’t give you details but I think it costs 15K inclusive of gasoline, driver and toll fee. Don’t quote me on that please. :) We were supposed to leave Manila at around 2AM but ended up leaving around 5AM because the drivers are late. I was so closed to being pissed. My friend who called them told us that the drivers are supposed to know how to go to Borawan coz that’s part of the deal. But it turned out, our drivers didn’t know Quezon at all. It’s their first time to go there as well. Thank goodness for good ol’ GPS for saving our lives and time. G.p and I are using our blackberry and android smart phones as we travel. Kami pa nagsabi kay kuya na lagpas na sya!! Kalurkey!



We stayed at Tamarind Tree Resort. It was the first resort we saw that actually rings a bell. It was a bit pricey. At first, they wanted us to pay 500php per head for the accommodation. We’re just on day tour so we all think it’s too much. Then my other friend and I haggled and the Manang agreed to let us pay 150php per pax for the use of resort amenities like the shower area and their lockers. Lockers na mahirap buksan at shower area na kasing laki ng bubuyog ang lamok. Ganon! But what I liked most about the place is that it’s very safe. They got guards everywhere. And the resort is very clean. The Tamarind Tree Resort is also the one who provided our boat rides. I guess it costs 1500php good for 10 pax. Not sure pero feeling ko ganon lang sya.

We only spend around 2000php per pax for this travel. The 2000php includes transportation, accomodation, pay for the island entrance and food. We had packed lunch and ate picnic-style in Kwebang Lampas. Since we’re only on day tour, we just bring some packed lunch, a couple of chichirya and snacks. Then we mooched off on some friend’s baon. Ganyan talaga ang buhay.

Other Details

We left Manila around 5 or 5:30 AM and reached Padre Burgos, Quezon at around 10AM. We then went ahead and did island hopping.




We left Dampalitan at around 5:30PM. Padilim na talaga! Then went back to the resort to clean up and prepare.

Quezon is such a beautiful place. I enjoyed our island hopping adventure and had fun looking at the other islands and the trees and nature in general. Ang lakas maka-saya!

But the highlight of our trip is actually the rainbow we saw on our way back to the resort. It was the most beautiful rainbow I ever saw. And very unique too.
