Try the Adventure in Bulusan Sorsogon - Ideal vacation place

When in Donsol, after swimming with the whale sharks, wind your way to the neighboring Bulusan via Gubat-Barcelona road. Bulusan is located in the eastern region of Sorsogon and its coastline faces San Bernardino Strait and the Pacific Ocean. The highway here has transformed admirably, no longer potholed and craggy but paved and wide enough for scenic drives.

Bulusan has always had the bevy of things to attract tourists. Take pleasure in the picturesque collusion of lush jungles, towering peaks, emerald green spring and lakes and azure beaches lapping around its craggy coastline. It is also home to Punta Diamante, a triangular fortification that surrounds theParish of St. James the Great, one of the oldest churches in the province of Sorsogon. The Bulusan belfry made out of coral stone, one of the five watchtowers built in the confines of the muralla to protect the territory from Moro raiders during the Spanish colonial period, still stands proudly to date.
Bask in the tranquil Dancalan Beach, for as low as Php 10 entrance fee per person you get an ideal picnic spot. Pack your snorkeling gear and swimming attire for maximum enjoyment of its calm cerulean waters. Cottages have mushroomed on its shore and for those wanting to stay overnight; they offer air-conditioned rooms starting at Php 1,000.

On the way to Bulusan town a few meters after Dancalan Beach, is a scenic cliff road called Tan-awan, it would be great if there's a viewing deck here as this spot offers a scenic view of the Pacific Ocean and San Bernardino Island.
The charming Palogtoc Falls was a favorite picnic spot back in the days due to its cold spring pool surrounded by verdant vegetation, unfortunately today, it is virtually forgotten. To get here you will pass by a beautiful hilly trail clad with grass and dappled with soaring coconut trees.
(Bayugin Falls)
The pristine Bayugin Falls in Brgy, San Francisco is hidden in a lush jungle. Hike up the craggy trail towards the falls and admire the rushing water that gushes into a crystal clear basin ideal for swimming and cliff jumping.
Nestled in the heart of Bulusan National Park is the town’s handsome poster boy - the mightyBulusan volcano. The lovely Lake Aguingay, can be reached via the trail to the summit of Mt.Bulusan. It is believed to be a dormant crater clad by two peaks. Scale up Mt.Bulusan in a day or two and be mesmerized by the stunning view of the surroundings. Also marvel at the Blackbird Lake,hemmed by rocks and boulders and continuously emit sulfuric steam.
(Bulusan Lake)
At the foot of the heavily forested mountain is the placid Bulusan Lake, managed by AGAP Bulusan. Its moss green waters are hemmed by dipterocarp trees, soaring ferns, verdant vines and bushes. If you have binoculars, try spotting endemic birds in the area and the eagle, usually seen soaring in the lake. Grab a kayak and paddle around or try the aqua cycle to soak in the refreshing atmosphere of Lake Bulusan. Despite its popularity to visitors, it remains a profoundly serene place just like the rest of Bulusan countryside.
