Hinatuan Itinerary

Travel Itinerary

As promised,  here’s a 3D2N Bislig and Hinatuan Itinerary, the second half of our 6-day Eastern Mindanao road trip adventure, which covers Surigao del Norte and Surigao del Sur.

Bislig - Hinatuan Itnerary - Words and Wanderlust

In 1993, I spent a summer in an island off the coast of Hinatuan, where my former nanny ran a small fishing business.

The island life was primitive but abundant. I remember looking forward to delivering our catch to the main town each morning, because it would mean I could buy a set of an 8-color marker pens, or an umbrella with a whistle. It would also mean I get to have lunch in one of our divers’ stilt houses.

This trip, more than anything, will be homecoming for me. I wonder if any of my friends are still in the island. I wonder if I could still recognise our own kubo; if Kuya Etok, the neighbour we gave the kubo to, looked after it like he promised to.

Highlights of this trip are as follows:

  • Enchanted River – Hinatuan
  • Tinuy-an Falls – Bislig
  • Britania Group of Islands – San Agustin (note that this bit is optional in the itinerary considering that the first half of this trip already has 2 island hopping (Siargao and Bucas Grande) activities.

Public and private transport options are available in this itinerary.
