Private island … is it a dream, “goals”, lifestyle or reality?
I have always dreamt big, even when I was an eight-year-old kid, my dreams were enormous and owning a private island has always been one of them. I even made up a name for it, Siniciliya, yes, that’s right.
I got a chance to spend a day at Virgin Island in the Philippines, it is privately owned but open for visiting. Surrounded by cyan and emerald shallows, clearest water I have ever seen, mangroves growing hundreds of meters away from any visible shores and a young moon shaped foreland that invites you to a place where the sea meets the sky. Paradise on Earth exists.
How is it to own an island? Now I feel like my childhood dream is becoming an adult goal.
If you come to Bohol in the Philippines, make sure you go for island hopping and visit Balicasag for swimming with turtles and of course see an amazing and breathtaking Virgin Island
