Jomalig for a Cause

Last July, my workmates and I went to Jomalig Island, Quezon to take part of a beach clean-up drive and outreach program for Barangay Salibungot and other neighboring communities. It’s a great experience for me because I was able to reach out to those who are less fortunate, experience their hospitality, and be one with them while enjoying the beauty of the island.

🌟How to get there:🌟


πŸ”΅Day 1

πŸ•›12am: Ride a bus near Legarda Station, LRT Line 2, (Raymond Bus), travel time 5 to 6 hours

Tip: Be at the bus station by 11pm or earlier, the bus will start its trip once seats are occupied. The boat ride to Jomalig Island is Β around 6am, and suceeding rides are usually by private hire only.

We arrived at the bus station exactly 12am, but the bus already left. Here’s a pic while we are waiting for the next bus to Real.

πŸ••6am: Alight at Real Quezon, ride a tricycle going to the port, then ride a boat going to Jomalig Island, travel time 5 to 6 hours, depending on passenger count, less passenger means less travel time. You can have free lunch at the boat if you’re lucky!

Touchdown Real! Beautiful sunrise.
