9. Manta Bowl
Manta Bowl is one of the very best tourist spots in Masbate, a dive site off the coasts of Ticao Island. There are several recognized dive sites in Ticao Island but the world-renowned one is the Manta Bowl which lies in rich-plankton waters of Ticao Pass, the feeding station of Manta Rays and dubbed as the “Manta Ray Capital of the Philippines“. Moreover, whale sharks occasionally pass though this site due to its proximity to Donson, Sorsogon. If you want to experience scuba diving in Ticao Island, arrange your visit in Ticao Island Resort, the premier and accredited dive center of Masbate.
10. Halea Nature Park
Aside from Catandayagan Falls and Manta Bowl, Halea Nature Park is among the best tourist spots in the province of Masbate situated in Ticao Island. It is an astonishing secluded destination featuring a small stretch of white sand beach, crystal clear waters teeming with fishes and corals, rock formations and greenery. Swimming and snorkeling in the beach are ideal things to do but a short trek on the rock formations is an interesting stone cliff where visitors do cliff diving. It has crystal clear and deep waters but safety practices are highly advised since the stone cliffs have some sharp edges.
