You don’t need a tour guide to enjoy summer!!
Vanishing locally wara wara literally it vanishes during high tide and its seasonal during Amihan or the northeast monsoon. The wind from the pacific blew making the waves bigger and the wave bring the sand from the deep of the ocean to shallow waters their came the Vanishing islet. Now it’s an opportunity for us to enjoy it before habagat southwest monsoon blew again. So enjoy it till it last!
WHAT TO PREPARE.
Since its an islet, absence of grocery store is expected. First you have to prepare things like food to eat because there is no grocery or a sari-sari store in that place because it’s an islet. I highly recommend you to bring some tap water to wash at least your face because salt water after it dried is sticky. And cloths for replacement of your swimming cloths a long sleeve dress is good for you to reduce the effect of sun burn. Don’t forget to apply lotion.
How to get there.
If you are from Legazpi City terminal look for the passengers Van to Bacacay fare is 35 pesos only every van capacity is 12-14 passengers. You can option to get the number of the driver just in case go home late and no more van available. If all you are in the same passenger van you tell the driver to bring you in the Bacacay port usually van ends in the town proper only. In the port there are many passengers boat. Available but often times are fully book so I again recommend advancing renting or asking for the availability of the boat. There is no regular trip to vanishing island so you really need to rent. BTW before i forget passenger boat has passenger limit capacity is 25-50 they big enough with comfy seats and individual life jackets. For sea sickness those how are not use to it making your stomach full before leaving your house is a good idea not to vomit or you can take medicine to avoid it. Before leaving the port a regular routine inspection of the coast guard is expected.
Now at the venue.
You don’t have to wait until peak of low tide because it takes hours for full low tide. You can already swim in the shallow waters. Your group can avail the floating cottage they have cottages with tables 500 per table 2-4 tables every cottage. On the peak of low tide local villager put some foldable tent that’s also available for rental 300 pesos only.
Dos and Don’ts’
1. DON'T LITER ANY OF YOUR GARBAGE because it will automatically go the sea and will add up to garbage of our oceans. Be responsible enough especially the children you have with.
2. Do not leave your children swimming alone. Vanishing island surrounding waters are deeper and sometimes strong wave can bring the kids those parts of the islet.
Van- 35 from Legazpi
Passenger boat – depends on the boat owner (agency tour guide charge higher) J
I highly recommend MB Ramil and MB Dreamer Passengers boat.
