The ‘boiling lake’ of Nag-Aso in the town of Manito is another off-the-beaten-path wonder in Albay. This 3-hectare lake is fed by a hot spring that has a temperature that can reach 100° Celsius, hot enough to boil eggs within 10 minutes.
Pinamuntugan Island in Bacacay, with its golden sands and blue-green waters, is one of Albay’s hidden gems off the beaten path of most tourists.
Did you know that Albay has its very own version of Bohol’s famous Chocolate Hills? These little-known hills straddle an area stretching from the third district to the second district of Albay. The hills are not as conical and symmetrical as the ones in Bohol, but they are remarkably similar in appearance and are probably of the same limestone composition. Indeed, these hills are a natural attraction and potential tourist destination in Albay just waiting to be discovered and explored.
San Miguel Island is located off the eastern coast of Albay in the Lagonoy Gulf. It is part of Albay’s chain of islands that include Cagraray, Batan and Rapu-rapu. San Miguel Island is home to an island marine reserve established by Coastal Resource Management Project in San Miguel Island (COREMAP-SMI).
The Kapuntukan Hill lies approximately a kilometer away from the busy Legazpi port. Because of its shape, it is also fondly and more popularly called by Legazpeños as the Sleeping Lion Hill, with the higher peak resembling a lion’s hunched shoulders and mane and the lower peak, its rump.
