Rombo Balabac: Punta Sibaring

Prior to my Balabac trip, I knew nothing about the place, except for a blog I’ve read, which stoked my interest all the more… and after seeing some photos, I knew right there and then that I have to visit Balabac come hell or high waters!

And so, it came to pass (so they say)…

Bugsuk Island: Punta Sibaring

Bugsuk Island is one of the largest island baranggays in Balabac; and a large portion of it is owned — according to our boat captain — by the Cojuangcos (which ones, he did not elaborate). Approaching the island from Rio Tuba, you will be amazed by the vastness of the pearl farm owned by Jewelmer.

Day 1 of our five-day safari in Balabac brought us to Punta Sibaring, owned by the family of Rene Principe. Although based now in Manila, Sir Rene coordinated our trip and entrusted us in the capable hands of Kap Andong Noe.

We reached the Punta Sibaring campsite late afternoon, just in time to bathe ourselves in magnificent sunset.

Punta Sibaring is a very idyllic place. Too bad, we had to leave our camp site very early for our journey to another island.

About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.
