Negros

Negros Island is a suitable for those who want peace and quiet without losing access to city entertainment. There are excellent opportunities for snorkeling, a large selection of natural excursions, beaches from large dark volcanic sand and luxurious tropical gardens.

Negros is the fifth largest island of the Philippine archipelago. It is said that the island got its name from the mountain range that occupies most of the island: dark, almost black rocks, overgrown with tropical forests, look very picturesque and make the panorama of the island unforgettable.

It’s easy to get to Negros from Manila or Cebu. From Manila it will take 1 hour of flight on a plane, but from Cebu it will take 30 minutes. If you like to travel by sea, you get to Negros by sea. From Cebu it will take 3-7 hours, all depends from type of ferry and from Manila it will take 20 hours.

In the eastern part of the island, among the untouched tropical forests, there are two very similar lakes – Danao and Balinsacio. They formed in the craters of ancient volcanoes, their walls are reflected in the frozen surface of the water, and the thickets of mangroves and many tropical butterflies make the picture really beautiful, almost unreal.
