I have been to several known beaches in Quezon Province and plan to visit more specially those islands that require long trips and several boat rides.
A-LI-BI-HA-BAN, located at the tip most part of Quezon Province known as Bondoc Peninsula (BonPen). It will take 10 hrs bus ride to reach San Andres terminal, around 5mins tricycle ride to port and 20 mins ride to the island.
Please check this link on how to reach the island (DIY Travel Guide by Freedom Wall). I took the Superlines trip from Cubao to San Andres. It was a non-aircon bus and took at least 5 stops, a bit tiring but it was a fine ride.
Alibijahan is dividend into three Polo and Polo 1 is sort of the center of the Island. Main community with school and the docking area of bangkas from mainland.
Luckily my contact Bangkero is the main contact of the resort primary owned by the Barangay Captain.
He assured me that if I stay on resort, my tent and things will be secured specially at night because they have Tanods that roam around the vicinity.
I stayed for 3 days and toured the island. This island offers Mangrove forests, lakes and sandbar. Hiked from Polo 1 to Polo 2 ..... and tambay ALL THE WAY!!!!
Pulo dos for me is the best place to stay and do camping. The place is not crowded because it is far from the main community and the shore line is perfect for strolling.
One advantage in Pulo 1 (uno) is that there are several sari sari stores, fishermen as well that can offer their catch for sale.
Pulo dos (2) has long stretch of white sand. The beach has clear water because their are few sea grasses below. On the other side is a mangrove forests with fresh water connecting to the sea.
The next time I will be in Alibijaban, I will camp out at Pulo 2 (dos)
