You'll pass by this man-made mahogany forest on your way to Salogdoong Beach from the main road. The trees there are still young and small. They are planted so close to one another, so I doubt if they would ever reach their full stature when...More

This is more of a side trip or an area you check out on the way to other stops. It provides a scenic ride up to the beach. The drive itself is pretty shady, a nice respite after you've been on a road trip on...More
