Welcome to Sohoton Cove, Bucas Grande Island
Within the Inayaran Inlet in the southwestern part of Bucas Grande Island situated off the coast of the province of Surigao del Norte in the Philippines lies the Sohoton Cove which is known worldwide as a 70-hectare maze of interconnected clear water pools clasped by thickly vegetated limestone islets of more or less uniform appearance.
For nature lovers like you, come to the enchanting attraction only during low tide via the 60-meter Sohoton Cave serving as the sole entry and exit to the area when the tidal movement recedes enabling the sea water current to slow down or come to a complete stop. On board a canoe or paddled boat, occasionally hold your breath and feel the thrill as the boat slowly enters the passage way. Going into the center of the cave and, as the foreign light from the other end meets your eyes, hear a mixture of strange sounds resembling that of banging metals and observe the very dark corner on the left side occasionally emitting a frying lard sound. With the dim light from the outside serving as background, gaze at the spellbinding stalactites hanging from the cave’s ceiling. Look down and see blended sea water colors often forming tiny whirlpools as the cave ends into the serenity of the lagoon. Truly, from the moment you’re in, you’ll ask if you’re still in this world!
