Simple & Rich Molocaboc Island at Sagay City, Negros Occidental




I just remembered this island that we stayed when we visited Carbin Reef in Negros Occidental. I saw again the photos of that escapade last summer and I realize that Molocaboc Island is a beauty of nature rich in marine resources.

So now I'm having this post featuring Molocaboc Island in Sagay City, Negros Occidental. I know it's a little late but anyways it's still a good share. Enjoy the post!

To reach the island we ride a motor banca from Vito port. It's a 20 to 30 minutes ride and take longer depending on the weather.

The weather that time is so unpredictable. When we're in the port, the sun was up and the blow of wind is normal, a great day easily said but when we're half way to Molocaboc Island, the weather suddenly change, strong wind, the rain start pouring and worst, the big waves are utterly scary. Though I enjoyed the ride, hahah!

A nice experience, pushing the motor banca using bamboo in shallow water. It's hard at first but maneuvering the motor banca where you want it to go is challenging.

Doing this ain't easy you know! ^^

Just how rich this island in marine resource? Surrounding the island are marine sanctuary and are well maintained. The photos below are some I've got in the shore and the shells we've bought there. And it's cheap!

A spikey type of sea urchins, very dangerous!

A variety of sea urchin that's not poisonous.

A thick mangrove area surrounds the island that shielded the residents of the island from the devastating super typhoon Yolanda last year, causing only minimal damages.

This thick mangroves shielded the island from super typhoon Yolanda.

Molocaboc island is divided into two, Daku and Diot. Connecting these two islets is a concrete walkway which enables residence to cross both island by foot. Though some part of the walk way was damaged by typhoon Yolanda.

Last shot. Jump shot! Wew!

That would be all for this post. Hope you've enjoyed it. Thanks for dropping by!
