Nogas Island is underrated! This small island is simply beautiful and peaceful. The water is so clear like those at Cebu and Palawan. To go there you can try going to the Sira-an Hot Springs, then ask where you can hire a boat to Nogas....More

NOT pristine white sand. Cats and garbage strewn around. All in all nothing there to say wow at. Open fires kicking up a stink with whatever they cook on them. Not worth it. Noisy people. Cut down branches and bushes to make fires to cook.

The place was quite ok. You have to have a snorkeling gear for you to actually enjoy it there. Without a gear with you, there's not much to do. There's also no fresh water for showering. But you can at least buy some drinks there....More

i think by cottage they mean like native shack , similar to on beach at mararison island, somewhere to sit, leave your stuff while u swim etc bit of shade from sun... its not accommodation.as such.
