Summer of 2014 was heating up! Literally, Metro Manila's temperature was raising its bar to 30 - 35 degrees Celsius. Escaping the urban heat, Fortune Island in Nasugbu Batangas was my destination.
This island is located 14 kilometers and about 45 minutes to an hour away from the coast of Nasugbu Town. This island is basically an abandoned island, previously owned by the Leviste.
Near the pillar, a diving spot portion can be accessed. Unfortunately, swimming/diving is not for me so I skipped that option.
The island is perfect for photo shoots, pre nups or simply for Facebook cover photos. The only access to the island is via boat, during our visit we paid 3000.00 for boat and that was good for day tour while 4000.00 for overnight.
Since this place is abandoned, expect no stores, no proper comfort rooms and most specially NO fresh water source/s. What this island offers to its visitors aside from the Pillars is the beach front. For people who is not into snorkeling, a shallow portion to the right side is perfect for swimming.
The island is also perfect for diving and also well for snorkeling. The Pillars was designed similar to the Ruins in Greece while on the far left a replica of a Spanish Warship was built, patterned after a San Diego, a galleon sunk near the island in the 1600's.
One day, I will try to visit the place again but it would be an overnight stay. I think the island is perfect for sunset or sunrise view or simply stargazing.
Fortune Island, another perfect place for a quick summer vacation with a touch of little Greece found in the Philippines.
