With its mountainous terrain and almost untouched forests, it is a surprise that Masbate is untouched by the development that is prominent in nearby regions such as in the chaotic Philippine capital Manila. Located smack in the middle of Luzon and the Visayas, this island-province is arguably one of the most underdeveloped territories in the country. It is this rugged scenery that lures backpackers into going to Masbate, as it is an ideal escape from the frenetic life in the city.
Masbate is surrounded by some of the country's most immaculate coasts. Just a tricycle ride away from Masbate town is the island's prime beach Bagacay. Set in a tranquil cove, this covert Eden is an ideal weekend getaway or a kick-off to a tropical vacation. Those who want to bask in the beach's idyllic atmosphere and stunning vista needn't worry as there is a wide range of accommodations nearby, ranging from quaint nipa huts offering a fantastic view of the place to lavish air-conditioned units. Those who want a more outback scene can head out to the pristine waters of Aroroy Beach and Batongan Cave with its baffling underground river.
