Photos: These IG Posts Capture The Beauty That Is Marinduque

Once upon a time, I visited Marinduque. There’s little I know about this island province that some dub as the “heart of the Philippines”. Well, I heard people call Masbate as the heart of the Philippines too so I guess these two provinces are having a bit of a tug of war.

Anyway, I went to Marinduque in 2011 because I was mesmerized of Bellarocca, a lovely island resort that borrows the looks of Santorini. That was a time when Santorini-inspired resorts were not yet of abundance so going there felt like a must especially if it feels like the closest thing I can get to the Greek island.

However, I felt I wasn’t able to experience what Marinduque really is that time because I just stayed in the resort. Hopefully when I get back someday, I get to visit other beautiful parts of the island.

With that feeling, I browsed Instagram to see Marinduque and other parts of it. It looked amazing. It had other islands that show pristine beaches. And there’s also a nice rock formation. Okay, enough of the chit-chat and see it for yourself. These photos may make you want to book a trip there soon. Kudos to those who posted these awesome photos!
