3rd day of a 3-day sequel featuring Tour B as follows:

1. Entalula Island
2. Cadugnon Cave
3. Vigan & Snake Island
4. Pinasil Island & Cathedral Cave
  


1. Entalula Island     
      The Entalula Island was the first stop we had for our third day. The rock formations were really beautiful. One can only imagine what eruptions or quakes occurred that could have produced those bizarre forming rocks.

2. Cadugnon Cave
   We had to pass thru a hole just big enough for a person to fit in order to enter into the cave. It is believed that this cave had been used as a burial site during the Neolithic Period.

This is the sight we saw upon entering but then you have to go up a steep slope to go to the other part of the cave.

3. Vigan & Snake Island
       The Snake Island is called as such because especially during low tides, a snake-like formation of sand appears which connects the island to the mainland. It was high tide though when we went there but the connecting part is still visible since it comprises the shallow part between the islands. We also trekked towards the peak of the hill to have a better view of the magnificent scenery below.

4. Pinasil Island & Cathedral Cave
    The Pinasil Island is much visited because of its Cathedral Cave which is called as such because of its dome like structure resembling that of a cathedral. Although we did not enter the cave, it can actually be accessed by the use of smaller boats. Watch out though for bats and sea snakes which are said to abound the area.
