Four of Britiania’s beautiful islets.
Our jump-off point was this little sea-side barangay in San Agustin. We arrived just in time for the start of a boat race.
The friendly crew waiting for us. Hop in!
One of the first few islands we saw. This one is very close to another island with a nice little beach.
On our way to the Naked Island.
This one is called Naked because, as you can see, it doesn’t have any vegetation.
Docking in a few seconds.
Quick photo with the whole group.
Our next stop was the Hagonoy Island. In case you’re wondering, Hagonoy is a type of mangrove. Apparently, the island has a lush supply of this mangrove which was why the name stuck.
Hagonoy Island. There’s a dilapidated wooden structure near the wider end of the island. Looks perfect for a beach house, I must say.
Dusk in Britania. We enjoyed the water for a couple of minutes because finally calling it a day. Our final stop, the city of Tandag.
