The beach front has also white sand but our guide tells us that it was taken from Panglao Island. Nevertheless, it adds beauty to Balicasag.

As an alternative for those who are not into swimming, diving, or snorkeling like me, you can take a tour of this small island (by yourself). You won’t get lost.. its just a small island.

You’ll get to see the Naval forces central detachment,

You’ll also see an old  watch tower and a new light tower.

You might end up getting hungry as it nears lunchtime after your activities in Balicasag Marine Sanctuary. You can buy fresh sea food like fish, squid, shrimp, and crabs and have them cooked at the beach front.
