The port at Pongo Marigundun was awesome! We wish we had more time to check this out - (if we had only known how late our boat was going to be...) - but it was fun talking to the locals and getting the scoop. The huts below are for day rental for just a few dollars you can rent one for the day and just hang out and have a good time with your family. Most of the people that frequent this area are locals. This is a place we believe we would have LOVED to spend a day!!
The island in the picture is Nalusuan.
It is a little big bigger than a football field.
They really didn't want us to carry our own backpacks, but most of us insisted, they insisted more and ended up taking them from us and in return they gave us shell necklaces and orange juice upon arrival.
I'm already in love with this place.
Check out our balcony.
Our room was on stilts in the water.
The kids loved having their own space.
Even if there was no electricity from 8AM-6PM
and NO TV or internet AT ALL.
How many star fish can you count?
Can you see the little nemo fish off to the right?
And the striped fish towards the bottom center?
(Those are our rooms on the left side of the screen!)
And my pictures do not do it justice.
We had our own private table.
In fact, we had our own private island for the first night as we were the only guest on the island.
When we went out for dinner our table was already set and waiting for us.
We started with sizzling squid - which was just as AMAZING as it looks.
Aren't our kids awesome?
He didn't even flinch at having a fish head in his soup.
He even had to share the eyeballs with Boy 2.
(I know..they are weird and awesome all at the same time! But I wouldn't have them any other way!)
I couldn't wait to see what the morning would bring us.....
