We left Manila Friday night all praying for improved weather but it even worsened the next day. It was so rainy in the early morning we arrived in Sablayan. Our plan b was to stay in Pandan Island which is only 15 minutes away from town. It was here where we stayed for the night thus another hope for improved weather the next day. Again, it failed. But that didn't stop us from having fun.
They are well spaced too and beautifully made a stay in one would feel like staying in a high-end resort. Basic provisions for electricity, (solar) and freshwater (brackish) but in an island setting like this it would already be a luxury. We brought tents with us but we were thankful for the nipa hut accommodations as it is very inconvenient to camp in a rainy weather.
It pays joining group tours. One doesn't have to worry about cooking food. G Adventures partner in Sablayan was the one who took care of our food delivered in time for breakfast the next day. For dinner we had buffet at Panadan Island's restaurant. Decent food. Very filling. The island is very quiet at night. Sarap.mag.muni-muni. we were out drinking at our cottage and again by the beach. Went to bed around 2am wasted but very happy.
