Tour Guide Did Too Much Talking
Dec 2016
The place would be more interesting if the tour guide shut up. Much of it sounded made-up: the false little prayer upon arriving on the location. Theatrical, not to say ridiculous. They charge you for a boat ride when it is probably easier to just go by foot. The Anda area is awesome but this little stop was not worth our time.

Interesting trek to the distant past
May 2017
We enjoyed this eco-tour developed locally that provides a glimpse into an undeveloped island with a past history as a burial ground. An excellent guide pointed out the many features of the island, which was reached by a paddle banca.

Should have been beautiful if preserved and well taken care of, however all cultural resources were pillage and the cave paintings are barely visible.

Interesting historical site with caves

This place is one of the new cultural places prepared for visitors.
Don't get me wrong - it's an old site, just more taken care of now, making it available for tourists.
We spent a few hours one day going here. We were happy for the advise we got upfront telling us to "go early" in the day. Later, with a start after lunch, will make it too hot and also tide will rise and you might struggle walking in knee deep water.
We went there straight after early breakfast.

You pay at a small desk along the road side. After that you are excorted down some stairs (mind your step if you have difficulties with high steps and rocky stairs...)
You will walk along a cool 370 meter wooden bridge and end up where the canoes/kayaks are.
5 min of water travel and then you are on the Lamanok island.
You will meet a nice guide who is interesting and fun. He speaks very good English, even though he is a native man.
You are never obligated to pay more, than entrance fee at the desk. But we felt it was a good idea, and worth it, giving some extra to the guide.

You will have 90-120 minutes on the island. Easy walking. Just a minor high steps in some areas. Guide will help you getting photos as well.

It was a nice tour overall

Enchanting
Apr 2016 • Friends
As a town far away from the city surely it is a place full of enchanting stories and a visit to the Lamanok Island will for sure give you more idea how "wizarding" or "witchcraft" can affect people in the island.

The tour is 300 per person contrary to what the Anda tourism has informed us that it is 300 per boat. A sailboat can accommodate 1-2 people depending on weight and size.

From Poblacion or center of Anda ride a trike or habal-habal to Badiang, Anda.
Travel time around 15 minutes and negotiate for a fare fair with the driver.
