Zamboanga Sibugay

During the Sibugay Festival, observe Muslim dance traditions like the Sibug-Sibug. The young and elderly dancers wear colorful costumes and head turbans, and shake reeds while energetically dancing to celebrate good harvest.
Around here, you’re never far from tasty cuisine. Eat talaba – native oysters – fresh from an oyster farm, or have them grilled to perfection by sidewalk vendors.

You can go island hopping, hit the beaches of Litayon Island and Sibuguey Bay, dive in the rich waters off Buluan Island, go caving in mysterious Moalboal Cave, or trek up Mt. Kipit – the highest peak in the province.

The even more adventurous can visit the Sea Snake Sanctuary, where these dangerous creatures have been tamed by indigenous folk.
