Eco Tours- Danjugan Island

About Danjugan Island

The island is located 3 km off the shore of Brgy. Bulata, Cauayan, Negros Occidental, Philippines. It is 150 km away from Bacolod, the nearest city with an airport.  The 43-hectare island is 1.5 kilometers long and 0.5 kilometers at its widest point, has 5 lagoons, is surrounded by a fringing coral reef, and is covered with limestone and mangrove forests which provide asylum to many wildlife species that struggle to exist in the mainland. What was once a threatened and over- fished area is now a protected sanctuary with a dazzling array of marine and terrestrial life. Today, the island serves as an outdoor classroom for students, a research area for conservationists, and a haven for tourists eager to experience nature at its purest. Danjugan Island is managed by the Philippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation, Inc., a non- profit non-government organization.

 

Danjugan is NOT A RESORT

We are a marine reserve and wildlife sanctuary. We are an ecotourism destination aimed towards conservation, environmental education, sustainable livelihood, science and research. We welcome all visitors to experience nature and immerse themselves in the sanctuary we have preserved for future generations. Please visit us with an open heart, and an open mind.

 

The Experience

 

The island’s ecotourism program offers activities that bring people closer to nature, teaching them to respect it and not degrade it. From the Eco-Briefing, nature walks to snorkeling, Danjugan Island will rekindle your love for nature, awaken your senses, and inspire you to be an advocate for the environment.
