Not a trip worth to do with small kids, as you might be more worried that they actually try to jump into the water and not just walking the bridges. With teens it might be actually better. All in all you can relax here, enjoy...More

This is not a place for adventure or sporty activity. It is a place where you can relax and unwind. All bridges/piers, shelters and a tower has been build from bamboo, and looks astonishing. Entry fee is only 50 pesos. Definitely worth a visit.

Another place featured in the Filipino movie Camp Sawi. The mangroves and bamboo bridge let you savor a different non beach experience in Bantayan Island. A good photo op spot as well.

It's a fun hour or two to walk the bridges through the mangroves and to feed the fish. Had a snack in the restaurant that was very nice and affordable. Took some great photos.
