Field Trip Memories:



This 3000-hectare island has underwater caves, fine white beaches, cliffs and abundant coral formations.

The island of Ambulong is one of the three islands in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro. The beach is carpeted with fine white sand that the barefooted tourist can enjoy. Divers also frequent the Ambulong Island because it is considered the jump-off point of several diving sites such as theIling Point, the Baniaga Reef, the Ambulong Bank, the Dungan Reef, the Sadines Reef, the Manadi Island, and the world-famous Apo Reef.

Linaw Baboy


Inside the cave are several compartments with the size of small cargo containers. Found to contain guano deposits and water pools, the cave is believed to extend to the adjacent province of Oriental Mindoro.



White Island

An almost mile-long beach with smooth and powdery white sand. A ideal place for swimming, scuba diving and fishing. This white sand beach can also be found in San Jose and can be reached by a 15-minute pump boat ride. The whole island is wrapped in serenity and it is the perfect place for tourist who longed for a real get-away. One can also do scuba diving and fishing. But one must be careful while walking along the beach line because there are delicate turtle eggs buried in the sand. These turtle eggs must not be disturbed.
