With hilly peaks that can rival that of Batanes, it's been touted as the Philippines' "Happy Island," for good reason: simply seeing how wonderful it looks like will definitely make you happy!
Waterfalls are a true staple in any Filipino traveler's itinerary, primarily because of how many are present in the country. Malabsay, located in Naga, is one popular destination because of the relative ease of reaching it, as well as how magnificent it simply looks.
Whether you're a surfer or a kiteboarder, the three kilometer stretch of fine sand in Bagasbas will definitely please you. In fact, this small town, in spite of its provincial feel, holds a few of the best surfers in the entire country! Prepare to live the surfer life in this idyllic and quiet surf haven.
Donsol is one of the few places that can be considered as a sanctuary for whale sharks. This is in stark comparison to some resorts and provinces that abuse and take advantage of the animals for profit. Unlike these resorts, Donsol does not feed the sharks, and allow them to come and go as they please. So if you want to experience swimming with them in a way that is safe for both parties, come to Donsol!
Lastly, if you're looking for someplace quiet to shy away from all your big city problems, Oas in Albay is probably your top destination in Bicol. A town steeped in tradition and culture, there's so much the solitary man or woman can do here: visit its many churches, perhaps weave your own basket, or try any of their wonderful local dishes. With its vast fields and quiet, provincial atmosphere, may your problems be swept away by the winds!
