Marinduque Island: Explore the Best 6 Attractions

Marinduque Island is a province in the Philippines, known for its unique Morions Music Festival. Tourists, locals, and foreigners flock to the island to take part in the colorful parade. The locals dressed in Morion costumes and masks.

They also know the province for its multi-billion-dollar mining industry in the 1960s. Which caused an accident that brought the mining industry to a standstill. This has also caused significant damage to the environment and the people of the island. With pending litigation with the multi-million dollar company responsible for the disaster, Marinduque is recovering. Although tourism is not the major source of your economy, it should.

This is my opinion on the top 5 attractions in Marinduque.

Melchor, Gaspar, and Baltazar.

(2) Explore the Bathala Caves in Santa Cruz:
Get a local guide and tour the damp and brave caves where bats and pythons inhabit. It involves some climbing.

(3) Immerse in the therapeutic water of the Malbog Hot Springs in Buenavista:
