Our next stop was not even on my list of potential places to see in the Philippines. Mostly because the Lonely Planet book did not have much to say, which is a mistake in my opinion. A lot of people recommended this little island from the last place we stayed so we took a chance. This island is great, the beaches are nice, the waves are calm by our …
... eire calmness. The only real action happening was passengers getting of the boat and one very active tricycle driver who had run halfway down the pier to get our attention and business. There's nothing like being white and nearly 6 feet tall, sometimes it helps!

In the morning the waves were pretty rough and it was windy. The owners of Liquid told us we should cancel that trip and try for the next day. No one objected to ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
