Booked last April 16-18, 2012, we were able to explore some of the tourist spots in the so-called "The Last Frontier of the Country". This blogpost will be featured in a series for each of the destination we travelled on.
First of this series is our Honda bay Island Hopping Tour. Thirty minutes away from where we stayed is the wharf that will lead you to the islands in Honda Bay (pronounced as "Onda" according to our guide, Kuya Omar, which means wave, deep).

First stop was Pandan Island, everybody was amazed with the powdery white sand and clear water of the island. In awe, i just whispered, WOW! Thank You God for this!

We had the most sumptuous lunch of the trip in here, What special about this lunch is the local seafood our tour group bought, it is called "pikit" or rock lobsters. It was indeed the best!
|The star of the lunch - "PIKIT"|
|You may walk the coastline of the whole island for about 30 mins. Its powdery white sand and clear water really made our stay in Pandan Island really worthwhile.|
|Kayaking is one of the water activities you can do in this paradise.|
|This is just one of the many of the starfishes we've found in the island, it called, "Pirate Starfish".|
|Starfish Island has lots of mangrove trees in it.|
|It also has cottages for visitors to rest in.|
|We really had so much fun in every island we went to.|
|One of the many activities you can do is snorkeling. Most of us don't know how to swim but with the help of our very kind and accommodating boatmen we were still able to sea the wonders of the sea.|
Last stop is the so called "Mini Tubbataha Reef" situated at the navel of the ocean called "Pambato Reef" where you can snorkel and sea how wonderful creatures we have underwater.
