To many tourists, Bulog Island is a destination off the beaten path -- all thanks to the challenging waves you’ll encounter along the way. However, to those who’ve seen it, Bulog Island is a paradise you shouldn’t miss.
Breathtaking sights await those who brave the rough Sulu waters on the way to Bulog Island — even from a distance, its immaculate white sand glimmers like a mirage while its aquamarine waters can make anyone jump in a heartbeat. Bulog, also known as Bulog Dos, is a small member of the Calamianes island and it is famous for its natural aesthetics — the place boasts of cleanliness and nature untouched, a long stretch of snaking sandbar, and rock formations that give the beach a rustic touch. A few metres off the shore, tourists can take a dive to see the beach’s various colourful corals and interact with its rich marine life.
