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.
Bacacay was found in 1649 as a barrio of Tabaco. By 1660, the barrio became independent and developed into a town or poblacion. It occupies the rolling terrain of the eastern slope of Mt. Mayon, descending to the low lands facing the open sea, Pacific Ocean. Under the watchful eyes and guidance of the beautiful St. Rose of Lima and the Lady of the Abandoned, the parish came into its spiritual being.
