Mantalinga Island or Good Luck Island beckons from across the sea. Just under 20 minutes from Baybay beach in Roxas City, it's rocky shores, tidal pools and sweeping view of Baybay are enough reasons to make the short crossing.
Maybe this island should be renamed Skull Island
Perfect spot for introspection
Fishermen wait for dark before setting out to sea
It's easy to hire a boatman for the ride to Mantalinga. Our fare was P500 for five people. Any of the hotels on the beach can arrange this trip for you. Best time to cross is during the early morning hours before the temperature soars.
