What to see in Marinduque?
This island is popular among tourists because it has a long stretch of fine white sand beach. The water on this beach is rich in marine life and tourists can enjoy its turquoise color. It features cottages at the beachfront and coconut trees. Several water activities like boating and paddle boarding are available in the island.
This cave system features 7 caves though tourists can only visit 4. The names of these 4 caves are Church, Python, Secret, and Cemetery. They got their names from their unique characteristics. The stalactites and stalagmites of Church Cave give the illusion of a church. Python Cave got its name from the resident pythons on the walls. Cemetery Cave houses human bones. Lastly, Secret Cave has a ‘secret’ exit hole.
This is ‘the oldest church in Marinduque’. It was built in the 18th century and has a Filipino-Hispanic Gothic Design. The well-preserved facade is prominent due to its terracotta material. Adobe stones make up the bell tower. It’s also a church full of history as the blessing of the Philippine Revolutionary Flag happened there on 1899.
