Down south in the Province of Surigao Del Sur lie stunning 24 Islands and Islets so beautifully
scattered in the waters Lianga Bay facing the great Oceans of the Pacific. These amazing gifts of nature are
called BRITANNIA GROUP OF ISLANDS.
Britannia Group of Islands is situated in Barangay Britannia of San Agustin in the central
region of Surigao Del Sur. From Davao City, San Agustin can be reached by passenger bus or private vehicle
approximately 6 hours away. The road trip going there may be dull but rest assured these Islets are worth the long
Composed of 24 Islets, this Group of Islands varies from shapes and sizes scattered magnificently in the open
sea. When I first saw them, it instantly reminded me of the Hundred Islands of Pangasinan and the Chocolate Hills
of Bohol, all combined as one. There were adjacent Islets spherical in shape and some of them are partially
surrounded with pristine white sands so pure and refined. It was actually raining when we got there and dark clouds
hovered above the islets but it didn’t obstruct us from putting us all at awe.
You can reach the place from Davao or Butuan City. From there, ride a bus going to San Agustin, Surigao del Sur.
The estimated time of travel is around five (5) to six (6) hours. From San Agustin, ride a tricycle and inform the
driver to drop you at Salvacion Tourism Office. Then ride a motorcycle going to the Britannia port. From there you
will need to hire a boat to bring you to the Britannia Group of Islands. Well, that is only if you will go there
without our tour services.
