Like an Indian arrowhead, Masbate lies almost at the center of the Philippine archipelago with its tip pointing towards the north of Asia Gulf extending towards the China sea.
The island province sprawls with verdant rolling hills and green landscape and rich aquatic reserve.
The wild wild west comes alive in the island every year. Every May, the country’s local cowboys flock to the capital town of Masbate to display their power over untamed cattles during its festival called Rodeo Filipino. In this international fair, the arena burst with fun and excitement and shouting.
Masbate is a flourishing island-province. Its three islands (Ticao, Burias and Masbate) are bounded with clean and fine beaches. Its sea waters abound with exotic fishes, corals and many other marine life.
Its mainland takes pride of underground rivers, unexplored caves and green landscape.
Masbate’s seaport can accommodate large vessels plying the island of Luzon and Mindanao.
