I agree when people say that Anawangin is overrated . I did not say its not good in fact its great and so amazing. But what makes it remarkable is that pine trees are noticeably scattered everywhere. I think that is the trademark of Anawangin. All other islands have pine trees too. I just wanna give you a heads up that to get there takes you a long bumpy boat ride and it was quite challenging for me. Can you imagine yourself if you are stuck in the middle of the sea in a small fishing boat in a vast dark of sea for almost an hour?
Just to give you a brief summary, Talisayin cove is a sitio in Pundaquit. Talisayin does not have any sort of accommodation except for a small cottages and one big house I think its more of a vacation house by the privately owned island.
I love taking photos, so I did not waste my time . You know exactly how it feels when you capture the beauty of an island . The photo looks like the rocky mountains of Colorado.
I like it here better than Anawangin because of less people and its not commercialized. But I think when this small island grows, small resort finishes, Other coves may be forgotten .
A sleepless nights at the shore [Photo below]
Anawangin has its creek at the back side , maybe its a river I am not so sure. Beautiful rolling mountains can be seen when you are in Talisayin . You will literally differentiate the blue sky, red hills and mountains. Talisayin has its creek as well although it’s dried up maybe because of the El nino.
Electricity is not a problem here because generator is provided to us. I think its open for just about 2 to 3 hours . It runs from 6pm to 9pm enough time for us to prepare at night . No phone signals too, so better let your parents know about your whereabouts.
