Pawikan (sea turtle) in Dampalitan Island

We spotted this sea turtle along with his two siblings right on the shore of Dampalitan when we hopped in the island last summer.


Dampalitan Island is nestling in Padre Burgos, Quezon province. Unlike most of popular beaches in our country, island beaches in this area are not highly commercialized .

It is a long stretch of fine white sand beach. There are nipa hut cottages available for day rent and a minimal entrance fee.

We actually had only short hours to stay in the island as we were on an island hopping. We just basically checking on Dampalitan.

Then we saw the pawikan.



We just snapped a photo ops with him for few seconds then we let go.

Sigh . . it was time for us to go. Other islands are waiting for us.

See you again Dampalitan !
