Suroy-suroy Sigaboy Experience

For the facts (^_^)
The word Sigaboy (now Governor Generoso) came from the word pig (baboy) with St. Elmo Fire (siga) that was a sort of apparition at the Sigaboy Islet.
On 1550 Fr. Francis Xavier set foot at Sigaboy to preached Catholicism to the Indies.
Over this area, you can find the southern most tip of the Philippine Archipelago.

Where is the Eyelet of the most Southeastern part of the Philippines?
It is found only in Sigaboy Davao Oriental. This is compose of one huge Rock which look like an eyelet. And, during the lowest tide this tremendous rock is so visible and you can Rock climb to reach the top.

The Altar at Cape San Agustin - this is made by natural stone like foundation which face the vast Pacific Ocean at Brgy. Lavigan. 60-ft. high rock formation is cherished and treasured to be the altar where St. Francis Xavier celebrated Holy Eucharist when he set foot at Sigaboy in 1550.


You can also experience "The Almasiga Festival" in Sigaboy.
It is celebration of the richness of history, culture and arts. And also the thanksgiving of the natural resources.

Sigaboy Island - located at Barangay Tibanban, with crystal clear blue water (as in super clear that you can see the sea urchin and star fish at the sea bed) very enticing for scuba diving and snorkeling.

Caves - approximately 60-feet deep at Brgy. Oregon, Taguibo Cave is home for hundreds of bats and other nocturnal species.

oh I almost forget to mention in Magdug area we found the 275-feet Mamacao tree they believe it was 300+ Years old it got that long cause if someone would even plan of cutting that tree that person will get sick and die.


Special thanks to Reden Gozalez, Josephine Flor and the other Students who made me feel like a princess (^_^) I will always remember those moments and hopefully by God's grace as I'm including all of them in my prayers that God will bless them with alif we meet again I can repay all of you, as for now I'm including you in my prayers, may all the things they need specially after high school graduation may they continue to have at least vocational school and be bless with work in Jesus name Amen!

To our driver Delio Fullozo, it was a rough road and no road signs visible during the night on our way home, we experience strong rain and wind, nothing is visible except the road very near the car, when I looked way ahead all I can see are fog, rain, and strong wind best driver gyud siya ai! May God will bless his wife and two kids according to their needs Amen! (^_^)
