What to do on Biri Island Biri Island has been blessed with natural beauty.
To the north of Biri is an enormous rock formation called Magasang.
So you can imagine that the tidal current can be ferocious.
Biri Island is subjected to some major pounding by the might of the Pacific Ocean, couple that with the fierce tidal currents and you can get some incredible natural scenery.
The Biri Fiesta is held on the 23rd to 25th of June, no matter where you go someone will invite you in to their homes to share a meal and some drink.
You have a couple of options from Manila which is roughly 700 kilometres north west of Samar.Just down from Magasang is the best natural saltwater pool in the Philippines, Bel-ot.This has also been the location of a number of Filipino movies, it is clear to see why they have chosen this back drop.You are not able to hire any equipment, there are no dive shops, which is a bit of a pity as I have heard the scuba diving here is awesome.There are also a number of walking trails criss-crossing the island through the tropical rainforest, don’t worry you cannot get lost as all roads end up back in Biri.
