Mt. Tapyas - It was on our first day when we climbed Mt. Tapyas. To get to the top, you would need to take 700+ steps. The trail to its summit was safe since it was paved and concrete. A huge steel cross is situated at the peak of Mt. Tapyas.

Maquinit Hot Springs - After climbing Mt. Tapyas, we headed to Maquinit Hot Springs to relax and rejuvenate. It is the only known saltwater hot spring in the Philippines. You can reach the place after your island hopping activity since your boat can duct right near the mangroves or you can reach the resort by land by hiring a tricycle.

Waling Waling Island - Also called Bulog Uno island. Small paradise indeed!

Twin Lagoon - is two salt water lakes separated by a narrow opening. Advisable to go here when it is low tide, you can swim across the narrow opening to get to the other lake. When high tide the opening is completely submerged and you'll have to swim/dive through it.
