Home of the Sea Turtles


Panda Island, Occidental Mindoro. Home of the Sea Turtles.

The adventure happened during the love month of 2009. The trip to San Jose, Occidental Mindoro was actually a replacement trip after my Batanes flight got canceled. Pandan Island was one of the islands we visited during the 4 days stay at the province of Mindoro.

I took this shot the morning after we set foot at this lovely island. I was told that this particular island is one of those places were Sea Turtles or Pawikan lay their eggs. Good thing the people of the resort knows how to take care of them and been successful on hatching eggs and setting the baby Pawikans back to the sea.

It was very unfortunate that there wasn’t any baby Pawikans during our visit but it was all fine because for the first time I saw a giant Pawikan and swam with it for a few minutes.
