Sorsogon is a land of breathtaking scenery as it is blessed with the bounties of nature.  The province is home to many world-class islands and beaches where visitors both local and foreign have enjoyed throughout the years, like the scenic island of Paguriran.

Nested in the Sawangga Bacon District of Sorsogon, the island of Paguriran has long been a favorite destination for many visitors who want to spend their vacations at the heart of pristine nature.  The island is surrounded by unique rock formations that resemble the remains of an extinct volcano.  A stretch of white sand cast against the clear blue water of the island is perfect for sunbathing and a long, refreshing swim. One can enjoy snorkeling and explore the island’s diverse marine wildlife and unique ecosystem.

 

How to get there:

Many bus lines offer overland trips to Sorsogon City.  From there, take a tricycle to the jeepney terminal for jeeps headed for Bacon. Ride a jeepney to Sawangga Baco, then Paguriran Island.
