What captivates the soul more than a tiny Island in the coast of Roxas City, Capiz known as Mantalinga Island.
It's a tiny Island located just a kilometer away from the shore of Baybay Beach which is famous for its long stretch of beachfront restaurants.
The place is popular in the entire Western Visayas region as the best food trip destination and is gaining national recognition as one of the best sources and a supplier of seasoods in the top restaurants in the Philippines, particularly in Metro Manila.
The seafood capital of the Philippines. That's the title awarded to Roxas City since it has an abundant supply of marine products like fish, shellfish, oysters and many more. It serves fresh seafoods everyday as at an affordable price as compared to high-end restaurants they supply in Metro Manila which is about triple or quadruple the price. In Baybay beach, Roxas City, you get unlimited fresh seafoods, day and night.
Due to its closer distance to the Mainland of Roxas City, it's easy to hire a pumpboat service to see it closely and can also be reached through a kayak.
It's also called "Good luck Island" by the fishermen since they believe it brings good luck once they inscribe their name on the rock before they go on fishing or to write the name on their boat before its main voyage.
We all want a good luck; a good journey in life. And when you visit this laid-back city in Western Visayas, be sure to see Baybay beach and experience the enigmatic charm of the Mantalinga Island. You'll come for sure and you'll ask for more.
