Sto. Nino

Nearer to the Province of Albay than to the rest of Sorsogon, Sto. Nino evokes images of remoteness and isolation. There are no roads going there. To get to this remotest of islands, one must board a boat and muster the courage to rough it out with the waves.

The going may be rough, but it’s most often worth the bout with seasickness. The waters are a calm shade of bluish green, and the surrounding mountains are a source of strength. On clear days, Mayon Volcano peeks behind the clouds, lending an air of symmetry to an island roughly shaped by the elements.
