Potipot Island Travel Guide

Potipot Island is located at Uacon Zambales.A one bus away paradise from Metro Manila.I really had a great time in the island with one of my best friend Win. Potipot is a perfect place to relax and to catch up.The island offers a stunning view of sunset and sunrise,a white sand shore line and crystal clear water. The island is being maintained by locals and requires a 200php entrance fee for overnight stay. This island is very accessible ,a 10-15 minutes boat ride from main land.
