PHILIPPINES: Culasi, Antique Escapade

Part 2 of my December 2011 vacation was going back to my hometown, a place where i spent my childhood, the sweetest high school days, and the people who loves me unconditionally, my family…

Culasi is a third class municipality in the province of Antique, Philippines. It is politically subdivided into 44 barangays which comprises 3 island, 11 upland, 16 coastal and 14 interior/lowland barangays. It’s a place where mountain meets the sea.

The Majestic Madjaas mountain, said to be the highest peak in Panay island and one of the favorite destinations of mountain climbers in Visayas.

Malalison Island, a stunning white sand island and crystal clear water. It’s 15 minutes away from the town proper by motorized pump boat.

They call this tip of the island as “sand bar” (a linear landform completely within or extending into a body of water).

Fishing is the main source of living for residents in the island.

The other side of the island facing Sulu Sea where there is an islet called “Nablag”. During low tide people could cross from the main island to this islet.

The residential area, only a generator provides electric power to more than hundred houses at scheduled times but there’s no proper electricity system in the island.

After an amazing trip around the island, we went back to the town and spent time with my family, childhood friends and classmates and prepared for our next trip to the famous Boracay Island the next day.
