Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa

It’s more fun in the Philippines… that’s according to our new and official tourism campaign slogan. I sure agree to that! But isn’t it more agreeable if all of us, Filipinos will be able to personally experience the true beauty and riches that we have been boasting to thousands of tourists from all over the world who come and visit our country every now and then?

I know many of us are not equally chanced when it comes to that aspect – to travel… but don’t feel bad. We’re on the same boat! Let’s rather dream while we can. It’s free, after all.

So where do you want to go in the Philippines?

I have been actively participating in a certain comment exchange activity on Facebook and from there I get to see stunning places in our country I never imagine do exist. One of those places is this newly added to Marinduque’s tourist attractions list – the gorgeous Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa – the place I wish to be next! Oh how I wish I have luxurious finances to hop from one island to another and discover heavenly places like this in just a snap. Spending a day or two at this island is sure worth every single of your peso (if you have it).

Take note of the word used: WISH. That is especially after I’ve downloaded a PDF file of its Published Rate for 2012. See screenshots below. Click to view image in full size.


Whew! Flattering, isn't it?I haven’t even been to Marinduque, myself.

However, should you wish to get stunned by this island in the future, here I have included in my research ways on how to get to Marinduque.

BY AIR – Zest Air (formerly Asian Spirit) offers affordable flights from Manila to Marinduque four times a week with discounted fees ranging from almost P500-P1300 and regular rates for P1400-P4200. Travel time is around 45 minutes.

BY LAND AND SEA – From Araneta Bus Terminal in Cubao take buses that leave for Talao-Talao Port in Lucena City, Quezon. The fare should be around P140-P160. If you are bound for the eastern side of the island, take a ferry for Buyabod Port in Sta. Cruz. If you are bound for the western side of the island, take a ferry for Balanacan Port in Mompog. Fares should be around P350-500. If you plan to take a vehicle, you can load it up a roll on-roll off (RORO) ferry. Montenegro Shipping has a 4-storey RORO that leaves Lucena for Cawit port in Boac daily.

BY BUS (DIRECT ROUTE) – Jac Liner Incorporated, the biggest bus operator in Southern Tagalog offers direct bus routes from their terminals in Kamias, Quezon City and Buendia, Pasay to Buenavista, Marinduque. For reservations call (02) 404-2073. (SOURCE)

Quite expensive but definitely worth the stay and trip. I guess I've seen this post of yours before. I even thought the picture was from other country.
