11HUNDRED-ISLANDS-660x337THE 30-MINUTE boat ride from the coastal village of Lucap to the Hundred Islands National Park (HINP) in Alaminos City used to be only a two-way trip to either Quezon, Governor’s or Children’s islands.
Boatmen would take tourists to one of the three islands as soon as they arrived at the wharf and return them to the mainland before sunset.
Until recently, only these islands had picnic sheds, toilets and facilities for an overnight stay that even if these were already teeming with people, tourists would still go there and try to occupy whatever space they could squeeze themselves into.
Today, the HINP can accommodate more people after six islands were opened as additional destinations. These are the Lopez, Marcos, Clave, Romulo, Mayor’s and Virgin islands.
