Britannnia Group of Islands

Britannia Group of Islands

Britannia Group of Islands is composed of 24 islets beautifully scattered in Lianga Bay. It is located in Barangay Britannia of San Agustin, Surigao del Sur. The group of islands is like a small version of the 100 islands of Pangasinan.

The islands have white powedery sands and you can rent a boat to see the islets closer. You can visit each island and relax there. You are also allowed to bring your own food. Just be responsible with your garbage. When we went there, we took our garbage with us when we left. Some people bring their tents and camp there.

As of now, the islands remain unspoiled and I hope they would stay that way.

How to Get There

You can reach the place from Davao City. From there, ride a bus going to San Agustin, Surigao del Sur. The estimated time of travel is around 5 to 6 hours. From San Agustin, ride a tricycle and inform the driver to drop you at Salvacion Tourism Office. Then ride a motorcylce going to the Britannia port. From there you will need to hire a boat to bring you to the Britannia Group of Islands.

      Hi Mic. Sorry I forgot how much it is to hire a boat but you can hire one for a whole batch… You just need to negotiate with the boat driver…

      I hope you’ll enjoy your visit here this October… 🙂

      You can bring camping tents but I’m not sure if it’s okay or if it’s safe to stay there overnight… However, there’s a hotel near Britannia group of islands…

      I spent around 3000 pesos. You’ll spend less if you visit the place with more people so you can divide the expenses, especially the boat rental for island hopping.

      Hi Weng. It’s true that most resorts there are affordable. Prices range from 1000 to 3000 pesos and can accommodate around 10 – 12 persons. Some of the resorts I can suggest are Mac Arthur’s Place, La Entrada Beach Resort and Oasis Rest House.

      Hi. Britannia Group of Islands isn’t really commercially developed. There are no cottages or entrance fees. You just need to rent a boat for island hopping. You can stay at the largest island and bring your own food or tent. 🙂

          Hi Mejai. Just like what I’ve said above, the islands aren’t really developed so there are no resorts in any of the islands. You can bring your own tent but I’m not really sure if it’s safe or recommended to sleep there overnight. It’s better and much safer if you’ll stay in one of the resorts near Britannia.

      Hi, I’m not so sure about this so it’s best if you can directly contact the resort so they can inform you regarding their policies.
