Fortune Island

It was once a luxury resort that later ceased its operations due to the lack of source of freshwater and overall difficulty to maintain. Since then, it has become a popular island-hopping spot in Batangas where visitors can swim, cliff dive, or admire its famous Grecian pillar ruins. If you prefer to stay overnight, camping at Fortune Island is also possible. However, there are no freshwater, toilet facilities, or restaurants in the area.

Aquaria Water Park Day Pass
A place that I enjoy going to is the beach.. It is seen as a place of relaxation because it is normally quiet and peaceful there. To look around you and see the beauty of mother nature at it's finest. The majority of people you ask will say that it is one of their favorite vacation destinations. Not only for the beauty and relaxation but for the sheer entertainment. That is the three reasons I enjoy it as much as I do.
