Maniwaya Island, Marinduque

Aside from Bellaroca and the Moriones festival, Maniwaya Island is one of the reason why you should put Marinduque in your bucket list. The island is not a popular destination yet. So, it is perfect if you want some peace and serenity while relaxing in the white sand beach.
