Places to be and to do activities when in Camotes!

Caves: Bukilat Cave

To start off,  Camotes connotes a lot of things but to me the first one to come to my mind is Caves! Amazingly this small island is a house to several caves that I must say a subterranean in nature with spring inside it.

One of my favorite among the caves in the island is the Bukilat cave!

Brief  History: The cave’s name is from the its discoverer  and during the World War 2, it served as a hiding place and a shelter to the villagers.

Some other caves in the island are Tangub Cave, Tangub Cave, Crytal Cave.

Cliff: Buho rock cliff diving

Cliff diving in Camotes? Why would I dare do that? Well, one way of discovering oneself is facing one’s fear. So , let go of the things that’s holding you back and dare to be bare.

Speaking of favorite, I found new Cassava cookie which is a favorite to a friend of mine. It’s a good cookie not so sweet and it’s healthier with all the benefits of Malungay which is reach in iron.

Whenever I go to a place, I  always tried to befriend them. Anyway people there in the island are naturally hospitable, charming and accommodating.
