Sorsogon, at the southern tip of Luzon, celebrates the Kasanggayahan Festival this October. Make it the perfect reason to experience these 6 sexy places!

What makes them sexy? Well, first, these destinations are simply gorgeous. Second—and don’t hate us for this inane idea—they’re great excuses to show off the body beautiful you’ve been working hard for. (Or, for those who place the premium on non-physical traits, these places will enrich your sexy spirit and majestic mind. O ha.)

And lastly, these places are still relatively unswamped by the hordes of tourists…meaning you can spend some “alone time” with your partner or loved one in an exotic destination. (Wink!)

Without further ado:


6) Subic Beach in Matnog

Locally known as Mala Rosa Beach because of its pink sand that contrasts beautifully with the azure skies and the crystal clear sea in Matnog, this place will captivate even the most jaded traveler.

Just a stone’s throw away, too, is Juag Lagoon, the fish sanctuary where you can feed the marine life. Everything’s going to be an unforgettable experience.


5) Mangrove Forest & Marine Sanctuary in Prieto Diaz

Ride a boat and explore the mangrove forest. Meet the different species, sample the fresh uni (sea urchin), and watch and learn how to make danggit.

4) Bulusan Volcano Natural Park in Bulusan

Nicknamed the “Switzerland of the Orient.” Take a long walk around the lake, or paddle your way in a canoe in the emerald waters of Bulusan, or grab a friend and ride the aqua cycle.

Go on a bird-watching adventure, or explore the rich flora within the park. And for the more adventurous types, climb the summit of Mt. Bulusan!

One of the most recent promotions—and one of the most exciting—the Panumbagan Sandbar offers an unparalleled view of two of the most prominent volcanoes in Bicol, Mayon and Bulusan.

The floating bamboo pods there are architectural marvels. A marine sanctuary offers snorkeling in one of the most beautiful underwater scenes. You can feed the fish in the open sea, too!

Thirty minutes away is Panlatuan Bay, home to one of the most abundant ‘lato’ reserves. Looking to get healthy? Get your fill of the freshest ‘lato’ there.


2) Siama Hotel in Sorsogon City

By far one of the top hotels in the entire region, Siama will pamper your senses. Nothing but the sounds of birds chirping and the crickets singing in the night. Its pocket design environment allows you to enjoy a relaxing and private vacation.

Must-do: take a dip in the pool with nothing but the natural green vegetation around you.


1) Butanding (Whale Shark) Watching in Donsol

The diadem of Sorsogon tourism, this is best done during the butanding season which is from December to May. Guided by whale shark interaction officers and under strict protocols (to ensure that butandings won’t be harmed), travelers can enjoy watching this creature’s magnificence in its natural habitat.

Those who have done this attest how exhilarating the experience can be. A bonus offer is firefly watching along the winding Donsol River. That’s best done during or near the new moon phase of the month.
