San Antonio Caves

Several caves are mentioned, to be located in San Antonio

Magallanes Cave

An unexplored cave that has quite large opening. At the entrance, stone formations went down the floor as a result to the earthquake that happened before. There’s a path that leads to the other chambers of the cave and people say that this cave has a chamber that leads right into the ocean. (Source)

Villabongga Cave

This cave, located at San Antonio is also a tourist attraction for its depth and compromising channels, ideal for spelunking.

I’ve always been a huge enthusiast when it comes to wild life photography although it has always been very hard for me since I could only afford a lens with much limited range. So it came as a delight after I heard of a village in the town of Jasaan in Misamis Oriental where I can get a glimpse of the sailfin lizard up close.

Searching for the location of the village was not that hard once I got to Jasaan since the lizard’s presence is already popular among the locals. After asking for directions along the national highway, I reached a residential area along the banks of the Solana river in Lower Solana and was pointed to a home of Rodolfo and Alma Dael.

Alma Dael pointed out that they have been feeding and protecting the lizards for 14 years.

Currently, the Dael family has recorded an estimated of around 70 sailfins visiting the concrete river dike outside the house.

It is yet to be determined if the lizard population is that of the endangered Philippine sailfin lizard (Hydrosaurus pustulatus) or the Amboina sailfin lizard (Hydrosaurus amboinensis) which can be determined through proper scientific study and genetic matching. (Source)

Sagpulon Falls

Governor Bambi Emano led the recent (Sep. 2014) formal ground breaking of the Php10M Sagpulon Falls Development Project in San Isidro, Jasaan. Sagpulon Falls has long been a favorite destination among local tourists from nearby towns but lacked the facilities to lure in more. The project includes a function hall, accommodation facilities, restrooms and an access footbridge and the completion of said amenities will make Sagpulon Falls more accessible to visitors. (Source)

Sagpulon Falls is temporary closed to the public, – effective June 1, 2015 until further notice!

Sagpulon Falls – under renovation and construction, will be open to public by October 2015. (Source)

Open to the public…2016

The renovated Hanging Bridge – May 2016 (Source)

In many places on Internet, is this Falls described as 350 METER high. If you measure elevation on the surroundings you will find it to be, approx 100 meter, so if the figure 350 is correct, it is in FEETS or about 107 meters. Still impressing Falls. 🙂

Approx. distance from Hanging Bridge to the Falls are 350 meters and an elevation of about 150-160 meters.

Agutayan Island

Crescent moon in shape and uninhabited, Agutayan Island has 5,000 square meters of white sand that sits on a 3-hectare marine sanctuary that serves as breeding ground of endangered giant clams. The giant clams are products of successful seeding project supported by the local government.
With its shallow water and amazing marine life, the place is ideal for swimming, diving and snorkeling. Camping is also allowed in the island. (Source)

Agutayan Island is a marine sanctuary near the coast of Jasaan. It is accessible through a number of ways, but the quickest and the easiest access is through Liyang Beach, a few meters away from Jasaan proper. They have rentable boats for groups which you can hire for around P1,500 (8 pax). Like Camiguin White Island, Agutayan is devoid of trees or plants, and only a cottage for the sanctuary outpost stands on its side. It is advisable that you visit early in the morning to avoid the harsh heat of the sun. (Source – more pic)

Please be advised of the following information from Liyang Beach:
The boat rental fee for boats from Liyang Beach is P1500.

However, the LGU is now controlling entry to Agutayan. All boats must pass through the Barangay jump off point. They are charging 50P per head for the environmental fee and P100 for entry permit to the island. Please come prepared to pay these additional fees, subject to change without notice.

Also, there is a maximum daily visitor count to Agutayan of 100 persons.

Entry to the island is limited to the hours between 5am and 12 noon. No trips allowed in the afternoon and after dark.
