Since last year I was already planning of visiting Biri Island to see the rock formation up close. On the 8th day of PHL50, that plan was realized. I departed Allen at around 8AM and took a jeep going to Lavezares. I had a little argument with the “konduktor” as he does not want me to get in the jeep. He said I should just take a tricycle since the jeep is only taking passengers bound for Catarman. I asked him thrice if he was sure as I was really in the mood to argue and he said okay you can go.
I arrived in the small town of Lavezares to take a boat going to Biri Island after about 30 minutes. The boatmen were convincing me to charter a boat to Biri and I politely said no. Then they said I can pay P100 (regular fare is P50) and the boat will leave. Again, I politely said no and told them I am not in a hurry and I am willing to wait. After about 20 minutes one of the boatmen said the boat is leaving. It was a relief.
We finally arrived in Biri after over an hour. The stairs of the small port was slippery so I slipped and good thing the people from the port were able to hold me. I really thank them, I could have been wet along with my bag and all my stuff.
I took a habal habal and I asked the driver to drop me at Villa Amor. The driver offered to drive me to he rock formation and basically anywhere I want to go in Biri. He asked for P250 but because he was nice I paid him P350.
I was already hungry so I told my guide to bring me to a place where I can eat. He brought me to Rosie’s Lutong Bahay and met the lovely and very accommodating owners of the place. I had so much fun chatting with them. The place was clean and the food serving was huge and affordable. The food was delicious too.
