DOT Region 1 Director Martin Valera said the tourism potential of the Hundred Islands National Park (HINP) has been further enhanced by other leisure activities “that would surely make every tourist’s stay a memorable one.”

Valera said the HINP is no longer known for just island hoping but also for other activities such as snorkeling, spelunking, fun-fishing, parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking, diving, bird watching, and rides like the infamous banana boat ride.

Hundred Islands National ParkThe area, he added, also abounds with scenic spots like the Governors Island, which was used as one of the homes of the hit reality show Pinoy Big Brother.

Cuenco Cave, on the other hand, is another scenic spot that boasts of its twin white beaches.

Milagrosa Island is among the area’s islands that has a cave filled with stalactite and stalagmite formations but is only accessible during low tide.

For those craving for an underwater experience, the Scout Island is the choice spot to visit, Valera said.

The Old Scout Island, meanwhile, is ideal for beach buffs who want to bask in the sunshine along the beach’s white sands. Another attraction is the Monkey Island famously known for sightings of monkeys in the area.

Valera said his office is working with DOT Region 3 Director Ronnie Tiotuico to bring members of the Pampanga Press Club (PPC) to Alaminos City for a familiarization tour of Hundred Islands National Park.

Tiotuico said PPC members are set to meet with Alaminos City Mayor Hernani Braganza who will deliver a brief update on the tourism, as well as the economic developments of the area.
