|Marinduque is located approx. 170 km south of Manila, so still relatively close by, but still little known. It can be reach by plane or bus trip to Lucena City with continuous boat trip to Balancan port. The travel cost by bus & boat are quite inexpensive (approx. P250.00 per person one way for bus & boat). Detailed information you can find on the following websites:|
At Katala Beach Resort we care for students, which like to explore the rich nature Marinduque island has to offer. Students can walk around and climb the mountains to explore the vegetation, flora & fauna, wild living animals like different kind of birds (with a bit of luck and patience you’ll see the Philippine eagles flying around, since several pairs of them call this island their home) monkeys, snakes, lizards, wild boars, butterflies in many colors, shape and sizes (pls. refer to http://www.geocities.com/idolsilva/marinduque.htm and many more. To explore all of this doesn’t cost anything, except maybe, if you like a local guide and use transportation, but both is reasonable cheap. The surrounding underwater world is waiting for your exploration.
|An inactive volcano named Mt. Malindig has given the island a sulfur spring (Malbog) and is itself a good spot for excursions. Different heights will show complete changes of flora and fauna, which everyone interested in botany will like. Historical sites are also available and even a white beach at Poctoy, Torrijos. You can go back in time exploring the fossils been found at Batala Caves, the Tres Reyes Islands and elsewhere around the island and many more.|
