Animasola Island: 1st Island Hop- Where you can find the torn pages of a huge book

  “This rock formation something like an old and torn pages of a huge book that fell from the sky.”  That’s the way Drew described this rock formation on his episode  Biyahe ni Drew (GMA Network Travel Show).

It was just the start of our four-island and didn’t expect the this first island to be a favorite among the four second is the sand bar at Tinalisayan Island. Best time to visit day time as this island is very isolated, no electricity and potable water system source. So bring food and water. Bring also your slippers or footwear as the island has many “rocky” areas. Lastly, don’t forget to bring your camera as this island is very ideal for great pictures.
