Good to know about Danjugan Island
Danjugan Island is a small island of about 1,5km length and 0,5km width and a land area of approximately 43 hectares and a total area of 200 hectares (including the reef). The islet can be found in the Sulu Sea about 3km west of Negros Occidental (Barangay Bulata, Cauayan) in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines.

It is one of the “projects” of the PRRCFI, the “Philippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation Inc.” which bought the island with the help of “World Land Trust” (WLT) and has been managing the island until now, trying to protect its forest and wildlife. Danjugan Island is one of the few islands in the area that still has its original tropical forest with plenty of wildlife. The island is also surrounded by a great coral reef.

Danjugan Island has 5 lagoons, 2 of them are open to the sea. Furthermore, you can find white sandy beaches, one of which is a nesting site for green turtles. The island is also home to at least 55 different bird species and about 6 different bat species which can find great refuge in small limestone caves.

This place is a little paradise. If you have the chance, go there and convince yourself. Even if it is not that cheap, you should really not miss out on this amazing place – you won’t forget it.
