South-east Luzon

Samar to Bicol.

Last post was from Catbalogan in Western Samar, Philippines. From there I caught a van to Calbayog, then another one to Catarman. Not much at Catarman, and I could not work out how to get to the beach. From there I caught a bus to Allen, which is at the northern end of Samar.

This is the other side of the river, some more huts and fishing boats. I really liked Allen. It was only a small town and my hotel was in the countryside a bit, so it was nice and quiet. I wish I had spent more time there.

The next morning I went to the port and caught the ferry to Bicol. There is no schedule and they just go when they are full of vehicles. This one was coming the other way.

Just near the port of Matnog on South-east Luzon, I saw this perfect set-up for surfing. This right hand point looked fantastic. Too bad it was only one foot waves. The other side of the island had a left-hander point.

Here is a roro, Roll on, Roll off ferry at Matnog. Good viewpoint showing how they are utilised.


Now at Sorsogon, just a hundred kilometers up the island of Luzon.
