Marinduque Wildlife Sanctuary | Things to do in Torrijos-Marinduque
|Address:||, Torrijos, Marinduque|
Located in high in the mountains of Pulang Lupa, this park offers a sweeping panoramic view of the eastern seaboard of Marinduque. The bloody gun battle between the Filipino revolutionaries led by Col Maximo Abad and the American Volunteers led by Capt. Deveraux Shields resulted in one of the very few victories won by the Filipinos over the Americans. The Americans officially admitted their loss as recorded in the American War Archives. Today an obelisk, a NHI marker, and a concrete retablo marks the place.
Poctoy White Beach is the only white beach area in mainland Marinduque thats offers a stretch of more than a kilometer of fine white to grainy cream sand. The place is complimented by available modest accommodations for overnight travelers and more than a dozen native huts for rent. It also has a good view of Mt. Malindig from the beach area.
The cave is located in Brgy. Bonliw, less than 200 meters from the national road. A Community-Based Rural Tourism program maintains and handles the daily operatins of the cave. There are identified seven chambers in the cave. Remnants of human skeletal remains of pre-Hispanic Filipinos can be seen near the caves entrance. Immaculate flowstones abound the next chamber, while fruit bats thrive in the innermost chambers. This cave is ideal for beginners and old people. It is included in the upcoming 14th National Cave Congress.
