How to DIY Fortune Island, Nasugbu Batangas

Fortune Island is an abandoned island located in Nasugbu, Batangas reachable via a 1 hour boat ride.

It was once a luxury resort, but I am assuming due to the lack of source for freshwater, it was abandoned and was left to waste away.

Today, it is one of the most popular places visited where you can experience a truly island life for a day or two!

Fortune Island boasts a stretch of beach with clear waters, snorkelling (if the waves aren’t too strong), cliff diving, photo ops with the ruins, a little bit of trekking to the light to the lighthouse, an amazing sunset and awesome milky way shots or starry shots if the time is right!

300/pax day tour
400/pax overnight
