Halea Nature Park
The province of Masbate is a place endowed with well-preserved beaches which serve as breathtaking tourist destinations. One of the province’s natural wonders is Halea Nature Park.
Getting to the island can be quite a challenge, thanks to unpredictable weather conditions, but once your eyes see the first speck of Halea Nature Park’s beauty, you’ll know why it is such a visited site — nothing but trees and towering stone formations, the place is a slice of untouched paradise. The water is a tease — it makes people wonder if it’s more of blue or of green — and the atmosphere holds a peaceful ambiance only disturbed by the howling wind, the rustling leaves, or by the sound of waves rushing towards the shore. One of Halea Nature Park’s main features is its stone formations — hike towards the top and you will be served with a breathtaking vista of the entire island and beyond.
