Aside from the Antique rice terraces in the town of San Remegio, which we have featured few weeks ago, there are a lot more in Antique that has yet to be discovered.
In Pandan Antique, at the Northern end of the province, there is a popular weekend destination for locals. They call it Malumpati cold spring. The clear turquoise water flow all the way to Bugang River, which is also a very popular Destination in the Province. The Malumpati Spring is about 15 minutes away from the town proper. The place is ideal for those who’d like to be in solitude and to commune with nature. Nature trippers will surely enjoy the place as it’s bounded by lush green vegetation.
From the Malumpati spring, visitors may also try gliding aboard bamboo rafts and cruise along the Bugang River. It is considered as one of the cleanest water in the Philippines.
Another famous destination in Antique is the Bugtong – Bato Falls. It is a seven tiered water falls that is accessible through a 20-minute walk or foot trail. One has to cross rivers and terraces inside the thriving forest of Brgy. Tuno, Tibiao to reach the famous waterfall.
Now the best part is for the sea lovers. There is famous Tropical Island in antique called Malalison. It is a tiny island community around 20 minutes from the mainland of Culasi Municipality.
Malalison – is famous for the long sandbar, white powdery sand, clear waters and grassy hills that greets every visitor in the island.
According to local folklore, Malalison is one of three islands (Maningning and Batbatan are the other 2) believed to have been the banished daughters of Mt. Madjaas. Considered the highest peak in Panay, Mt. Madjaas (which also means mataas or tall) rises over 2,000 meters above sea level and overlooks the three islands comprising Culasi.
At the back of the village are grassy hills that visitors can hike to for stunning views of the mainland and nearby islands.
