Pandanon Island (Getafe, Bohol)

After a complete standstill in the middle of our way to our destination because of a leaking fuel tank, opting for brief diving and snorkeling activities in the area while waiting for the second motorized banca (the rescue!), Pandanon Island was after all close to getting us all sunburnt.

Pandanon Island is part of Getafe (or Jetafe), Bohol. It is a very small island inhabited by probably only a few hundred people (that is based on what I saw, just a fair estimate). What attracts tourists to the island is its long stretch of white sandbar that is more like a long extension of mainland Pandanon.

When we got there, it was almost noon, and the sun was peaking turning the area into a desert of white sand. It was a very hot day, a reminder that summer isn’t over yet.

I had fun! I enjoyed snorkeling and swimming hastily back to shore because of a disturbed sea snake! :) 

I would like to thank the May and June birthday people! What a treat! And to the life of the party, thanks, it was fun with less effort. We could hardly contain the jokes and the mere thought that you were a little less sober. Ha ha! :)
