Tired of the beach? Go to this town in Sorsogon

By Jose Carretero, ABS-CBN Bicol

MANILA, Philippines – A town in Sorsogon offers a one-of-a-kind summer adventure to holidaymakers who are tired of going to the beach.

Pilar, located at the southeastern part of Luzon island, is only an hour away from Legazpi City in Albay. Here, visitors can explore a cave’s wonderful rock formations which can give a feeling of stepping into a different planet.

The cave, home to thousands of bats, also played a part in the country’s history. During the Japanese occupation of the Philippines, soldiers reportedly sought refuge here.

After visiting the cave, visitors can go to Pilar waters, home to rich marine life, or to the Egret Sanctuary where they can watch magnificent birds in flight.

“First time ko po makakita ng ibon na marami tapos magaganda,” one tourist said.

Another added, “Pagdating namin ikukuwento ko sa mga friends ko, relatives, kasi maganda ang lugar ng Pilar, Sorsogon.”

Vacationers don’t have to pay a king’s ransom to experience exotic locations. Pilar’s tourism office is offering affordable tour packages to make traveling hassle-free.

The only thing you have to worry about now is how to squeeze fun and relaxation in one day.

“We are promoting it at a cost of P2,900,” said tourism officer Joel Navora. The fee is inclusive of the guide and boatmen’s services, boat rental, and snacks.
