Mt. Bulusan Natural Park & Bulusan Mountain Lake
The site is a favorite destination of mountain climbers and nature lovers for a number of excellent reasons: Mount Bulusan remains to be an active volcano; the surrounding forests boast of exotic flora and fauna; and the mystical Lake Bulusan lying 2,084 ft. upon the slopes of the volcano.

Island hopping is a must-do when in Matnog, with its picture-pretty little islands featuring fine white, black, and even pink sand beaches. The islands are jump-off points for scuba diving and deep-sea sport fishing.

Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water. W. C. Fields
