There are 307 islands and islets in the province of Tawi Tawi and fortunately, I did a half day island hopping tour to see some of them when I was here. Everything was arranged by my tricycle driver cum tour guide cum body guard. Unfortunately though, I lost hold of my notes where I put all information about my Island hopping experiences. Anyway, I had a good time visiting 3 nearby islands. The people here are lucky because they still have beautiful islands and beaches to enjoy.
Here are some of the photos of the adventurous island hopping I did in Tawi Tawi.
HOW TO DO AN ISLAND HOPPING TOUR IN TAWI TAWI
To do an island hopping tour in Tawi Tawi, contact a boatman at the Chinese Pier to assist you. You can haggle on the rate depending on how long and how far your activity will be. Better yet, seek the assistance of the Provincial Tourism Office located at the Provincial Capitol.
MY PERSONAL BIAS
The islands I saw do not have fine white sand beaches but the waters are clean and crystal clear. The main attraction of island hopping is the opportunity to experience unspoiled beaches and islands.
