16 May Agutayan Island of Jasaan, Misamis Oriental’s World-Class Summer Location
Mga higala! Don’t miss out and complete your amazing summer experience with one of Misamis Oriental’s most visited locations-
The Agutayan Island in the Municipality of Jasaan.
The island is so vibrant with marine life with beaches as white as snow. It may be just a small patch of sand compared to other famous beaches in the country, but it certainly is one of the most beautiful. See for yourself and check the images by Katawa CDO Doodzkie below:
How to get there?
1. Get to Cagayan de Oro’s Agora Terminal and locate jeepneys and buses bound for Jasaan. Jeepney Fare: P30-P40, Bus Fare: P50.
2. The ride takes around an hour in order to reach Jampason, Jasaan. If by some chance you get off before or ahead Jampason, you can take a ‘habal–habal‘ motorcycle (P20/head) in order to reach the barangay.
3. Upon arriving in Jampason, the local government will ask you to log your names before riding a boat going to Agutayan Island.
4. Boat Fare: P1,800, good for 6 persons. Prices will vary with the size of the boat and number of passengers.
They have clean bathrooms where you can take a shower and change clothes, so don’t worry. But since the island is not yet developed, you can only find shade away from the searing sunlight in your boats and their watchtower (or umbrellas). Bring a lot sunblock and don’t forget to bring googles in order to fully enjoy what Agutayan Island can offer.
Note- Follow Jasaan’s Slogan when visiting the island:
TAKE nothing but PICTURES, KILL nothing but TIME, LEAVE nothing but FOOTPRINTS.
