We enjoyed a day adventure with a stop on Miniloc for some great snorkelling! We loved seeing a jack fish, turtle, and lots of small tropical fish swimming with us in the bay!

Once you land on the shore it seems like you've landed on your private place. All around is beautiful and the atmosphere is like in a movie.

It is a must to swim and snorkel in the beautiful beach with very fine white sand and very clear seawater in Payong-Payong Beach. Likewise you will see the fantastic rock formation of the other islands nearby.

I love that it's so quiet here, most tour will stop by this island for lunch only. But you can explore the beach (it's small) and take pictures, it's a relaxing place.
