Holy Week in the Sagisi

This was another moment of holy week spent in an island. Particularly in Sagisi Island, an inhabited island that is an hour boat-ride away from Surigao City.

Sagisi is one of the stopovers for an island hopping package offered by some of the tour operators in Surigao City. The island offers white sand beaches, enticing cool and clear blue waters, and lush shades that is good for hangout and relaxation.


Added to the exciting island hopping adventure adjacent with Sagisi is another tourist destination in its neighbor island, the World War II-old Punta Baluarte. Plus the countless possibilities of experiencing some more white sand beaches in the cluster of islands around. There is this Bikini Beach comparable to Naked Island in Siargao and the Samputan Beach in Hinatuan Mine site that is visible from the island. Samputan Beach which is located at the island site of the Hinatuan Mining is blessed with very fine white sands that submerges one's feet according to our pumpboat operator.

Speaking of white sand, the back side of Sagisi Island hides an amazing delight of fine white sands spread in its less than half a kilometer shore bordered by rock formations. It is accessible by foot following the trail that cuts in the lush hill of the island heading to the other side.

For less than 5 minutes, an amazing site of white shore will catch your attention. Even amazing as you set foot in its finer than sugar sands.


The serenity of its environment is very contemplating. And its fine white sands made me darker than dark, as if I am a piece of driftwood stuck in the beach.


As much as i wanted to dip in its coolness, i was afraid a one month bleaching will not make any good to bring back my, ehem!, tan (burned) color. So with all my might, I resist not to swim and sunbath anymore. Instead, did the camwhoring part of the adventure.

As we wait for our "loser yayas" get done with their preparation of the lunch consist of kinilaw and grilled fishes, we the señoritoes and some of the social climber yayas around played volleyball. God must forgive us for being so naive with the observance of the Maundy Thursday.

The Islander is the star of the game. Beating its opponent team in 5 straight games. Wahakhak!
Its so nice of Sagisi Island's caretaker to maintain the volleyball court.

Look at the moves... (wonder if i hit the right target)

It seems like you had a lot of fun during the holy week. Was there also a time to reflect? :) The one month bleaching was hilarious.

By the way, please change my site from The Asian Traveler to An Asian Traveler. I lost my custom domain. I have now my new web address http://www.anasiantraveler.com . I’m still in the process of modifying my blog. Thank you.

Reminds me so much of the formerly family-owned beach resort in Antique. It's so close to the mountain. Ang ganda nung mga rocks.

Pero mas maganda ata yung sand nitong Sagisi Is. ^^,
