Quitinday Falls and Underground River | Things to do in Jovellar-Albay
|Address:||Brgy. Quitinday,, Jovellar, Albay|
Quitinday Hills are scattered like giant mounds of greens in the hinterlands of the town. Mayon Volcano in the background adds a dramatic view to the hills.
Dancalan Beach is a crescent-shaped shoreline in the sleepy town of Bulusan, Sorsogon. A public beach easily accessed from the highway, it faces the Pacific Ocean with a very shallow swimming area that goes for several meters before getting really deep. Its pale-colored sand is almost white and talisay trees provide its beachgoers with some shade. There are a few resorts in the area but despite their presence, this spot does not lose any of its simplistic appeal. Campers are welcome to pitch their tents, while those staying just for a few hours can rent day cottages. A minimal fee is also charged to visitors to help with the maintenance.
A sky full of stars and mangrove trees lit by fireflies make evenings in Ogud River an enchanting one. On this cruise, a little boat takes visitors down the river and into a more remote part of the town where only mangroves and other vegetation line the riverbanks. It is a serene journey where one can also learn from the tour guide many interesting facts about fireflies. Like for instance, how their existence is connected with the whale sharks. The Ogud River Firefly Cruise can accommodate groups of up to 5 people per boat. The jump off point is roughly 20 minutes from the town proper and is reachable by motorbike or tricycle. The actual cruise, on the other hand, lasts about two hours, and is best experienced on clear and windless nights. Gliding through this artery of the larger Donsol River is perhaps the best way to cap off an adrenaline-filled day with the whale sharks.
