MT. PINATUBO

WHALESHARK INTERACTION

DONSOL, SORSOGON

Donsol, SorsogonThis place at the southern tip of Luzon recently made a huge break on the country’s tourism when hundreds of whale sharks were spotted congregating in the muddy but plankton-rich waters of Donsol. Whale shark spotting in Sorsogon became a word of mouth passed on to every tourist exploring the Philippines. Thousands of visitors arrive each season to swim and witness the presence and  friendly behavior of the whaleshark locally called "Butanding."

These gentle giants arrive from as early as November but the official season starts from February and runs until end of May, where the sea of Donsol is at its clearest and calmest. Local tourism officials and professional divers have established guidelines on proper whale shark watching intended to maintain safety and to defend the creatures from over exploitation.


SURFING

Philippine surfing … not quite a destination that would conjure up images of brilliant surfing breaks. Truth be told, surfing in the Philippines can be fickle, but if you are after an adventure, are willing to go off the beaten track and are not afraid to try something different, then surfing in the Philippines will not disappoint you.

With 7,107 islands, the roaring Pacific Ocean bordering the eastern coastline and the South China Sea on the western coastline and attracting more typhoons than most neighboring countries, Philippine surfing is alive and well. In fact the Philippines is not a new surfing destination, with surfers enjoying the waves here since at least the sixties, maybe even earlier.

Philippine surfing can be both temperamental and seasonal, it is important to know when the best time to come or you may be disappointed. There is nothing worse than a surfer without a surf. You can either surf the east coast or the west coast. The east coast probably gets the better surf. But like everywhere, surfing in the Philippines is inconsistent, however, on a good day, it is totally unforgettable!

ZAMBALES

Zambales is a province on the west coast of Luzon north of Manila. It is bordered to the west by the South China Sea, hence the surf action. The opportunities for surfing in Zambales are enormous. The entire coastline offers adventurous surfers many possible surfing breaks.

As with most Philippine surfing breaks, the word that comes to mind the most is inconsistency. You are able to surf all year round in Zambales, however, you may have to search fairly hard to locate rideable decent waves. During the months of May to late November, the surf is probably at its most consistent, not necessarily at its biggest, but you will definitely get more consistent waves. The period from December to April requires a lot more help from mother nature, usually in the form of a low depression in the South China Sea, which can whip the swell up to three or four meters. This is a big powerful swell and requires a good level of experience.

SIARGAO

Surigao del Norte is a mosaic island in the northeastern tip of Mindanao, a province that has managed to preserve its natural marvel through the years.

On the eastern side of the province is Siargao Island, a tropical jewel that hosts one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and home of wave surfing, the latest sport and tourist attraction to take the country by storm.

Siargao is a tear-drop shaped island situated 800 kilometers southeast of Manila. The east coast is relatively straight with one deep inlet, Port Pilar, with a coastline marked by a succession of reefs, small points and white sandy beaches. There are similar neighboring islands and islets with similar landforms. The reefs and points are excellent for picking up any swell that comes along turning into clean, fast waves.

The best known surfing break now with a world reputation of being in the top Surfing Waves in the world, is nick-named "Cloud Nine". But there are literally scores of breaks down this coast, and everytime a surfing expedition is mounted in the area, more new breaks are being discovered.
