Old Jars of Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay
Bounding the province’s southern peripheries, Sibuguey Bay has sites ideal for snorkeling and diving. This underwater must-see is blessed with several coral formations that function naturally as fish sanctuaries.
It is the largest fish sanctuary found in the province. Tantanan Bay is located within the municipality of Alicia, encompassing an area of five hectares.
A notable fish sanctuary in the province is located within the municipality of Talusan, and dubbed as “Takushari.” It can be reached in about five minutes from the seaport.
Within the island of Pulo Laum, the provincial government is currently maintaining a sanctuary for the propagation of sea snakes. The island is located within the municipality of Olutanga.
The province is endowed with several islets that are ideal for resort development. Notable are Pandilusan Island in the municipality of Payao and Litayon Island in the municipality of Alicia. One characteristic that they have in common is their white sand beaches. In addition to these islets, there are also white sand atolls in both municipalities that are submerged during high tides.
The primary inland tourist attractions of the province include the large caves in the municipalities of Tungawan and Talusan as well as the Moalboal Cave in the municipality of Titay.
Among the picturesque waterfalls found in the province are Tagbilat, Dalisay, Tugop Muslim, Cobacob, Go-otoc, Malagandis, Basay, and Palina Falls in Ipil.
Hills & Mountains
The province is endowed with vast natural attractions, especially hills and mountains, some of which are developed as economic enterprises by the Municipal Government Units or by private groups. However, many of these remained untapped due to inaccessibility and funding constraints.
Pandilusan Island in Payao
Which is 1 1/2 hours away from Ipil, where there is a coral reef sanctuary. The water there is so clear and the sand is so fine that it reminds you of talcum powder.
Celebrated during Foundation Day of the province of Sibugay
The festival promotes Sibugay's no. 1 product - the oyster (talaba).
The “Talaba Longest Grill” was part of the two-week long Festival held in its capital town Ipil that attracted visitors and spectators from different parts of the country. It is the main feature of the festival which vies for Guinness Record of “World’s Longest Talaba Grill”.
