Finally! after a tiring and wonderful day we finally arrived at our last stop, Britania, San Agustin. Its about 1-2 hours ride from Hinatuan, Enchanted River. We stayed at Mac Arthur’s Place which will be our jump of point for Britania Islands hopping for tomorrow morning. The resort offers perfect view of scenic Britania Islands, it has air conditioned rooms, catering services, videoke, and of course some ice cold beers. Services stop at 10 p.m due to barangay ordinance, so if you wanna have some great time with your drinking buddies better start early.
Britania Islands is composed of 24 or 25 unspoiled islets of powdery white sands. These islets are situated at the Lianga Bay and faces the great Pacific Ocean.You can do a lot of activities here such as sightseeing of mesmerizing views, swimming, island hopping, snorkeling, and many more. . . .
Our first point of destination was Hagonoy Island its about 20 minutes pump boat ride. This Island can be compared to the famous Boracay Island because of its powered like sands.
Boslon Island is surrounded by different rock formations and one of the biggest island among the 24 Island of Britania. It was named after a priest who took shelter on the island during the world war days. This place would be our last stop, so we stayed long and entertained our self exploring the island.
If i would describe my stay in the province of surigao in one word it would be “awesomeness” . I was so grateful being able to see the beauty of nature with the help of my friends of course. staying there was amazing and a pure leisure time.
