GMA News: Ang Pinaka’ fun-tastic things to do in Albay


Team “Ang Pinaka” is not just about food trips. This May, the team went to Albay, home of the majestic Mayon Volcano, and discovered fun-filled activities to do in the province. Aside from admiring Mayon from afar, try island-hopping and spelunking.

Here’s how you can enjoy fun-tastic activities in Albay.

Cagraray Island Hopping

Brgy. Misibis, Albay

One of the most famous private resorts in Albay is Misibis Bay. Located at the northern part of Albay, Misibis Bay can be quite pricey; rooms go for $750 to $1200 a night.

If you’re on a budget and can’t visit Misibay Bay, try Cagraray Island Hopping and tour around the lesser known but equally beautiful islands of Lagonoy Guly. One of these islands is Manaet Monkey Sanctuary, home of coconut-eating monkeys.

The island hopping tour takes about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the weather. The blue green waters of Lagonoy Gulf, however, will take your mind off the long journey.

Cagraray Eco Park

Going around the Cagraray Eco-Energy Park park requires a bit of cardio work. You have to trek your way up from the pier to the park itself.

You will be rewarded, though, with an impressive sight of the Cagraray amphitheatre, the only amphitheatre in Asia, and picturesque Misibis bay; and the Cagraray Eco-Energy Park Chapel, a breathtaking piece of architecture.

Cave exploration

Just an hour away from Legazpi is the municipality of Bacacay, and a two-hour boat ride will take you the beautiful island of Cagraray, home of the famous Mataas cave. Mataas cave is one of only two caves in Albay open to guided tours and spelunking.

Going to Mataas cave would require you to trek the forests of Bacacay. From the pier, walking to the cave would take about 20 to 30 minutes. Exploring the whole cave, meanwhile, would take about a day because of its numerous chambers.
