25_marinduqueA natural arch, natural bridge or less commonly, a rock arc is a natural rock formation where rock arch forms, with an opening underneath. Most natural arches form as a narrow bridge, some natural bridges may look like arches.
The rock formation is commonly known as Ungab Rock Formation, because it is located in Sitio Ungab, eastern side of barangay island, Mongpong, in Sta. Cruz, Marinduque. The rock formation called by the locals as “Balogbog Baboy”.
Worth to mentioned the unusual beauty and exquisite fragility, the crystal clear water added to the place look more stunning. At the back of the rock formation is a cave, that added attraction in the area.
???????????????????????????????There are some small rock formations along the shore, unfortunately they are messy, garbage’s left by irresponsible tourist and visitors. The garbage’s are nasty to others eyes. Some locals are also complaining, but they are helpless. The area is private property, there is Php. 50.00 collected to every boat landed in the beach, but cleaning are just made, mostly every summer. Visitors are come and go, as a part of island hoping from Maniwaya. The local barangays and the owner, should agree and impose or implement some rules and regulations to all visitors, entering the premises of the island. The locals should compensate in any form to to made the locals be diligent in cleaning and improving the place.
