Borobangkaso Islet (Masbate, PH)

“Islands are metaphors of the heart, no matter what poet says otherwise.” – Jeanette Winterson


Island-hopping is probably one of the primary things you got to do when you live in an archipelago of 7, 107 islands dotted with gorgeous shoreline.


Living in the Philippines my entire life has made me a beach lover. Ironically, I am not an avid fan of swimming in the open sea. I just love walking and bumming around the beach despite the sweltering heat of the sun. You see, the sun and I get along pretty easy.


Seemingly floating around the Masbate Strait is a small island, which features a distinctive rock formation that looks like a pile of books from afar, as its centrepiece. Borobangkaso Islet is one of the stop-over if you happen to do an all-day island-hopping in Ticao Island, Masbate Province.


From among the places we did see during that one fine day in Masbate, the tiny island of Borobangkaso captured my heart. You see, I have a soft spot for rock formations. And the islet itself seems untouched and yet to be discovered. Our quick stay in the islet made me depart to the self-possession of nature.

Despite the looming gloomy weather that afternoon, my friends and I had an awesome time taking photos of this picturesque piece of land. I promise to return to this place sometime in the future and spend more time.


Don’t be a wasted soul, be a wanderlust. Take it easy ebriwan. Roamulofied out.
