· Bring enough supply of water because there is no potable water on the island
· Waterproof all your things- the boats for hire are just small motor fishing boats
· Light trekking up the lighthouse
· Rocky trek on the beach

· Taking private car will reduce travel time by about 30 mins
. You may ask your boat man to take you to Anawangin Cove for an overnight stay in a secluded beach.
· If you feel like exploring the mainland in Barangay Pundaquit, you'll find a waterfall on the side of Mt. Pundaquit; Just keep walking to the left side on the beach in San Antonio. Upon reaching a creek, just follow it inland. Locals may guide you there.
