Detailed location provided after booking
- Horseback riding
- Scuba diving
- Wildlife watching
Scuba diving: There is an eight-hectare reef located 15 minutes away from the resort, the Manta Bowl, which is the feeding ground of Manta Rays. The waters are full of plankton and have a strong current, which attracts creatures such as whale sharks, thresher sharks, hammerheads, and tiger sharks. For a dive to enjoy corals and macro critters, the San Miguel and Udoc islets feature more than 12 dive sites each with its own unique collection. Night diving options are also available. For inexperienced divers, glampers have the option to take courses with certified professional instructors. A camera room is available for use free of charge. Nitrox and scuba diving equipment rental is available at additional costs.
Whale shark swimming: Close to the property is Donsol, the largest congregation of whale sharks in the world. This location is a boat ride away from the site, about an hour and a half away. Whale sharks are inoffensive creatures, and you can swim alongside them! This is an activity that can be done en route to the glamping site.
Horseback riding: This province of the Philippines is known as “cowboy country” for its many ranches and rodeos. This property is located on a 500-hectare ranch, and it has been in operation for more than 100 years. You can ride on and through this ranch and visit untouched beaches. Around the property, riding is free of charge—glampers only need to inform the reception as early as possible so as to ensure availability. Trail rides can be arranged for a small fee.
Kayaking: There are kayaks on this property, available free of charge, though they are on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Firefly river tour: The Mangrove River is one of the few remaining areas in the world with a large population of fireflies. This is an evening-guided activity lasting a few hours, and there is a small fee. Glampers can choose to go by paddle boat or by motor boat.
Fishing trip: Glampers can have a three-hour fishing trip with a local fisherman, who will show guests the Filipino way of fishing and will share his knowledge of the ocean.
Island tours: Go on a day-long boat trip to visit the various islands near the glamping site. Guests will see things such as limestone rock formations and waterfalls, and they will be able to swim and snorkel in crystal-clear lagoons. Guests can then have their lunch on a white sandy beach.
Village immersion: Glampers are free to walk around the island and enjoy the community—some may even take guests out on their daily fishing trip. Glampers may rent a local motorbike that can bring them to the town center. The elementary school is 20 minutes away by foot, and guests can attend some of their classes and share some of their stories and knowledge with the students.
Bikolinaria culinary tour: The Bicol region of the Philippines is famous for its typical meals. Guests will be guided by the chef who will explain how to make authentic dishes such as Laing, Pinangat, Tinutungan na Manok, Bicol Express, and Pili Nut Candies. If traveling with a larger group, guests can also have a demo organized, where these dishes will be prepared in front of them. This tour can be arranged in different locations, depending on glampers' desires and schedule.
