Buenavista is one of the municipalities in the province of Marinduque, Philippines. According to the 2010 census conducted by the Rural Health Unit, it has a population of 23,111 people.
This smallest, once-forgotten town of Buenavista, small but the most scenic place in Marinduque where the Malindig volcano looms over the lives of the peace-loving and culture-bound people living there, is steadily rising above the decades-old hardship and poverty. Small resorts and parks are being built, roads being upgraded, training programs and livelihood programs undertaken, the people no longer feel they are left behind and now recognize their importance in contributing their own share in the island-province’s tourism development and economic progress.
Malbog Sulphur Springs
Frequently visited by local and even foreign tourists located in Brgy. Malbog. It is a hot spring at the base of the inactive volcano Mt. Malindig, with therapeutic and natural healing waters.
Dominating the skyline south of Marinduque is Mt. Malindig, an inactive volcano. Dense forest covers its upper half. Found in abundance are giant trees, moss forest and wild orchids. The rest is nearly deforested due to the slash and burn method of farming. This however, does not diminish the attraction of Mt. Malindig, which until now remains an excellent place for mountain climbing, camping and bird watching.
PLACES TO STAY
Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa
Bellarocca Island is situated off the south west coast of the Marinduque province. Characterized by seaside cliffs, valleys, hills and sparsely dotted plains across this heart-shaped region, therein lies even more impressively hot springs, waterfalls and underwater flora and fauna. In addition to these, there are caves that await exploration by adventurous travelers. Many are yet to be fully investigated or documented. The most famous of these cave systems is Bathala Caves which hosts a complex network of seven mostly uncharted caves. In the capital Boac, spelunkers can take delight in the limestone Talamban caves situated on a 300-meter hill.
Because of the location within the Philippine archipelago, Marinduque has been aptly dubbed the heart of the Philippines.
For those who wish to travel privately, guests can choose to arrive at the island directly via private helicopters, chartered flights or luxury yachts from Manila to Marinduque. Arrangements are coursed through our Manila Reservation Staff.
