As expected, we finished hiking Mt. Gulugod Baboy too early, done hiking as early as 11 AM. This, of course, gave us plenty of time for the beach side trip. But then, it was high noon, and we don't want to end up like french toasts, therefore we waited a few more hours (eaten our lunch first and had some power nap) before we proceeded to our island destination.
| Sombrero Island was the target destination after our quick and easy hike in Mt. Gulugod Baboy. It's just 25-30 mins boat ride from Anilao, thus a perfect post-climb side trip. Good thing there's Kuya Globert (contact him here: 09215739964), getting a boat to Sombraro Island was a lot easier.
|just so you know, that island seen at the left of this photo is Sombrero Island.|

|At 1PM, we started sailing off to the island.|
We're 14 in the group, and we rented the boat for P2500. P180/head is not that bad.
|oh, we're almost there!|
From afar, Sombrero Island does resembles the shape of a hat , hence the name.
|who will not be tempted to swim by this very fine beach.|
|thank God we had a very fine weather that day|
|sabik sa dagat!|
|before we were allowed to roam around, the caretaker charged each one of us P100 for the entrance fee.|

Thanks again to all who joined me in this trip!
