Like any other place in the Philippines there are two kinds of seasons- the dry season from November to April and the wet season from May to October. It is recommended that travelers visit during dry season, especially from December to February when temperatures are much cooler and touring will most likely not be interrupted by rains and will not be really hot going around.

We enjoyed a few hours taking pictures, flying the drone, swimming, snorkeling, taking under watershots before coming back to San Pascual. There are no cottages in this island but there are tables if you are planning to have your lunch there. It was our favorite one in our Burias Island Tour.

We spent more than 2 hours in Tinalisayan Island since we were alone we wanted to enjoy the paradise. You can go swimming around the island since there are no waves is quiet and calm. Make sure you bring snorkeling gear since the boatmen will not provide. And it’s clear the water plus you will see many fishes around.
