|Everyone who comes by ferry from Hagnaya to Bantayan is greeted on arrival by two beautiful islands in the vicinity of Santa Fe. One is Virgin Island always had a little visit worthwhile because of the beautiful beaches and wonderful snorkelling opportunities. The larger of the two islands Hilantaga an Island is less well known but has still lost nothing of its pristine originality. Until now there only live some fishermen selling their fresh fish, mostly in Bantayan on the market or near the port of Santa Fe. Often the beautiful shell lamps coming from there, you can buy them everywhere in Bantayan Island.
The fishing huts are unfortunately not very Photogenic but who would like to experience like a real fishing village in the Philippines today, looks like there should necessarily do there a short stop. There are indeed often only simple houses and sometimes even just cheap tin huts, but the ordinary people you encounter there are the friendliest one you can only imagine. The things that are noticeable visiting such an island are the many colourful fishing boats and countless children welcome you often already at the beach. They are always friendly and usually come at once started always in the hope of a little gift. Brought sweets are mostly very common, no angry parents give a disturbance. So who ever has the time to make a trip to Virgin Island or just a circular tour around Bantayan Island should make here a short stop in Hilantaga an Island.
