Siquijor, Maria

PRINCESA BULAKNA


early morning scene in princesa bulakna, locals go out to pick  shells (locally referred to as sisi) that are usually attached to coral stones

the tour started in Princesa Bulakna resort in the town of Maria where i was billeted the previous day. Reminder to self: don't forget the resort orientation and the seasonal wind direction. if that sounded cryptic, here's a quick summary, resorts on the north-eastern side during Amihan (trade wind, north east direction from September-October to May-June)  will generally have rough waters and debris on their shoreline, and in the same manner, when the Habagat winds come in, the south-western side resorts should be avoided.



early morning, locals head out to collect sisi


low tide early in the morning, waters are rough and waves are big. during calmer season,  princesa bulakna has a gorgeous snorkeling front as it is a marine sanctuary
a clear sunday morning

from Princesa Bulakna we traveled to Lazi town that is home to the first four tourist spots for the day.
