by lakwatserong tatay

From our tireless 1st day trip. We need to have a scenic view were we will just chillax and of course, photo sessions will be present. Johari's places is really nearby a shoreline, and were really lucky because just few meters away. One of the 5 beaches/island of Sorsogon is just reachable by walking across its shoreline. By researching some info's regarding with this islet..this is just an small island infronting the Paguriran Island Beach Resort, that can found in Sawanga, Bacon District, Sorsogon. The island itself is very picturesque, with a beautiful lagoon at its center with the earth and craggy rock wall formation enclosing it, jutting upwards. much like a volcano crater.

Paguriran Island
Although this island has been featured in several print media, it has remained almost untouched. Maybe this is one of the most uinqie characteristic of this island,because the visitors of this island, the tourist and the locals are more conscientious enough to protect and preserve this magnificence island. Paguriran Island lagoon in the past, was  used to be a sanctuary for giant sea turtles or pawikan. Residents say there are plans to restore the pawikan sanctuary. At present, the waters surrounding the island is Bacon's marine sanctuary.

Early walk is good to your health
While walking across it's shoreline you can see that it's sea water is really a waste free environment because you could see some mangroves and even shells on it's shores.

On it's island, is a really majestic view that you could see also the Mayon Volcano, sad to say that time Mayon Volcano again is shy to us. You could also see the Marine sanctuary around this island. Some rock formations is also present on this island, that reminds me of Palawan. This island reminds me of White island (bohol) because the time we arrived on this island you could actually walk on this white sand as you can see above. Before you will enter it's lagoon you could probably take some photo opps like what we did....

Some of the rock formations around this island
To climb up the upper part of this island, you have to prepare some gloves and a pair of trekking sandals, because of the rough edges of its rocks that could give you some brushes or maybe a bit cut...hehehe....FYI...don't used any sandals specially like most expensive one's...because maybe you will suffer afterwards...hehehe...And of course, this is one of the most important thing that you must not forget...CAMERA's.......hehehe...
