Another very well-visited spot in the province of Surigao del Sur in the Caraga Region is the Britania Group of Islets. Composed of 24 small islands scattered off the coast of Lianga Bay, the beautiful Britania Islets is a natural treasure that we Filipinos are very lucky to have. If you’re in Surigao de Sur or more specifically in San Agustin, do check out this very beautiful spot.
Our jump-off point for this trip was this little sea-side barangay in San Agustin. We arrived just in time for the start of a local boat race.

One of the first few islands that we saw was this one which is very close to another island with a nice little beach.

This island is called Naked Island because, as you can see, it doesn’t have any vegetation. We were supposed to stop here but we didn’t have much time. It was getting dark fast.
We’re finally docking at another nearby island.
Quick photo with the whole group.
Our next stop was the Hagonoy Island. Hagonoy is a type of mangrove. The island has a lush supply of this mangrove which was why the name stuck.
Dusk in Britania. We enjoyed the water for a couple of minutes because finally calling it a day.
