Batangas is a travel destination jam-packed with white beaches, gorgeous mountains, coves, and diving spots that are only a few hours away from the buzzing streets of Manila. As a Batangueno, I take pride in my native province, and it just so happen that one of my favorite vacation places is found in its vicinity. Fortune Island, according to Wikipedia, is a 27-hectare of land mass which lies 14km away from the shoreline of Nasugbu, Batangas. So what could you expect from an Island fortuned with the gifts of nature? A surreal holiday experience that will keep you coming back!
