The first and most obvious reason to save Dahican Beach is that very few people have ever been here and imbibed its beauty on a sunny afternoon, with a gentle Pacific Ocean breeze bringing the sounds of dolphins frolicking in front of a beach that they know is protected by Man . . .

What is “explorer tourism”? In a nutshell, explorer tourism is all about going somewhere that is so new to tourism that you may be the first person to experience or discover something there. The additional benefit of being the first to experience or discover something is that you frequently receive the honor of naming the something.

For many years Ecotourism in the Philippines has had bad-press, and justifiably so, e.g. tourist attractions that allow the visitor to observe the natural environment from the comfort of a gas-guzzling SUV traveling a concrete road, riding a zipline through a manicured portion of forest or, visiting a theme park, set in a portion of cultivated land beside the forest (from which it was hewn), to observe a selection of caged animals. Not exactly “Eco”!

Few know where Sibuyan is, fewer still know Sibuyan better than the forest rangers and hiking tour guides. If you are considering hiking with Mother Nature for an explorer holiday on a tropical island then you need to visit Sibuyan . . . Sibuyan is the one place on Earth where the Environment is predominant and consumerism virtually non-existent.

Beyond eons of time recorded, Maestre De Campo (also widely known as Sibale) was formed from the heart of the Earth in a prolonged volcanic eruption that punctured forever the surface of the Sibuyan Sea. The volcano island spewed millions of tons of lava, ash and rocks skyward, that fell back to the ocean floor to create one of the most intriguingly beautiful islands at the very centre of the archipelago that is known today as The Philippines.

Two new ferry services are now available that will help tourists visit parts of the Philippines largely overlooked in the past. The first is from Manila to Romblon (and Masbate and Cebu); the second is from Pinamalayan to Maestre De Campo (Sibale), Banton and Simara (Corcuera).

If you have ever traveled on a Philippine inter-island ferry then you will know that the toilets (vernacular: “Comfort Rooms”) are the last consideration for passenger comfort and are frequently a disaster area: smelly, often with broken cisterns and frequently with no running water or drainage, the complaints have mounted and mounted, especially for Montenegro Lines . . . because Montenegro have reportedly long maintained a strangle-hold on routes to the most beautiful parts of the archipelago. We have found an alternative and, everyone who is compelled to travel by ferry, should take note.
