TAYTAY, NORTHERN PALAWAN


Malampaya Sound – Malampaya Sound, at 200,115 hectares which includes a big chunk of Taytay’s total land and inland water area and extends well beyond the boundary of San Vicente,  is the biggest protected area in Palawan.  It also presents a pretty and fascinating land and seascape on a clear day and is one of the only three known habitats of the Irrawady dolphin in the Philippines. Fishing is the biggest income source for the inhabitants of many barangays that are situated within Malampaya’s boundaries and it is also fish and crustacean in the sound that provide food for the dolphins. Malampaya is accessible in just a few minutes by land vehicle from Taytay town center via Sitio Agpay where bancas are available to ferry local residents and visitors to wherever their destinations are or whatever activities they wish to engage in. 
   
Lake Manguao – The biggest freshwater lake in Palawan. With its thick forest cover, it is also home to nearly 160 species of birds and  13 species of fish that are endemic to Palawan, 5 of which are found only in the lake. Monkeys, squirrels, stink badgers, otters, scaly anteaters, and snakes also inhabit the 660 hectares expanse of Lake Manguao.  It is about 12 kilometers from Taytay town center by land vehicle. Activities that are commonly being engaged in are fishing, paddling, swimming, bird-watching, and trekking.
       
Pabellon Twin Islands (Pabellon Grande and Pabellon Pequeña ) - Islands with serrated dark-colored limestone cliffs and caves where the swallows thrive and breed. It is well-known for producing first class quality edible birds’ nests that the Chinese consider as a kind of aphrodisiac.  Boceadores or nest gatherers show their expertise in climbing the jagged rocks without harnesses and attachments except improvised bamboo poles and rope. The main island features a fresh water lagoon inside a cave for swimming. It also has a fairly wide white sandy area ideal for sun bathing and beach volleyball.  Swimming, sailing, and snorkeling are the main water-based activities.

 Bugtong Bukid – Is an extinct volcano and probably the only one of its kind in the province. It is believed to have erupted with such violent force hundreds of thousands of years ago and its eruption caused the damming of Lake Danao and scattered volcanic rocks over several thousand hectares of area that now hosts Barangays Bantulan and Calawag. It is located 3 km from Lake Manguao and is suitable for trekking, volcano climbing, nature/wildlife watching.  Additional features are its cold springs where locals bathe for therapeutic benefits  and cosmetic rejuvenation.  Agriculture is the main industry considering the area’s fertile, volcanic-type soil.

Sader Cove and White Sandy Beaches – It is one of Taytay’s best kept secret for many years. The vast expanse of fine, white sand beach during low tide is great for board skimming, beach ball games, kite flying, aerobic activities, and of course, walking.  This area is about 19 kilometers by land transport from Taytay town center. Another option is to take an hour and a half banca ride from the jetty near Fort Santa Isabel . The boat ride offers a nice and enjoyable water-based viewing platform for those who prefer this option.   

 Canique Waterfalls – situated just 30-40 minutes away by land transport from Taytay town center, this spectacular body of cascading water that continually pounds the small pool at ground level from a source nearly 80 feet above, is a highly popular picnic and nature-related activities site for the villagers and their visitors. Squirrel, snakes, seldom-seen birds  and  insects  inhabit the forested area surrounding the waterfalls and some of these creatures may be seen by those who are lucky,  patient enough,  or have the time to wait till they appear.
  
Minapla White Sandy Beaches and Coves - Long stretches of white sandy beaches, lush vegetation, rare endemic  wildlife, unique white rock formation known as Conical Island,  giant, smooth boulders of different shapes and sizes scattered along the length of a portion of its shoreline. Area is good for sailing, swimming, kite-boarding, trekking, and camping. It is accessible from Taytay town center by land and takes  45 mins– 1 Hour to reach Sitio Kauban, then  30 minute boat ride from Sitio Kauban to  Minapla, or 2 ½ hours banca ride from Agpay River.

Taytay Bay Underwater Attractions – Scuba Diving and snorkeling are just some of the many enjoyable and exciting activities that water sports enthusiast can engage in while visiting Taytay. There are still many fairly decent coral reefs  and fish life in Taytay Bay. There are now some Taytay bay tour operators who offer island hopping tours that feature such activities as swimming, snorkeling, and picnic at one of the many white sandy beaches like, Quimbaludan, Dinamayan, and Pabellon Twin Islands that are situated in the Bay.  Best time to consider Taytay bay as a tour option is during the Habagat season from around mid-May till September, although activities can still be done during the Amihan  (Northeast Monsoon) when the prevailing wind conditions are just about right.
  
 Biton Island- It is the only place where the unique and lovable white squirrel can be found. It also has a colony of thousands of fruit bats that thrive on a forested area on the island. Facing east are found white sand beaches where visitors can simply laze around or swim. Nearby is black rock, a marine protected area that offers good snorkeling and scuba diving

A DAY WITH BARANGAYS NEW AND OLD GUINLO

As a commitment by the municipal government to bring its services directly to far-flung barangays, LGU Taytay's offices conducted this activity at Barangays New and Old Guinlo which was attended by a majority of those who have yet to avail of services like health, social welfare, business registration, technical assistance, and other services that the constituents expect the local government to deliver. Here are snapshots of this big event, with the Municipal Mayor Romy L.Salvame and SB members in attendance :

115th Anniversay of the Civil Service Commission

The culmination of the 115th year founding anniversary of the Civil Service Commission brought joy to a number of loyal and dedicated LGU employees who received cash awards (P1000.00/year of service) from LGU Taytay through Mayor Romy Salvame and Vice-Mayor Christian Rodriguez for the equivalent number of years that they have unselfishly offered their services to the community and the municipal government of Taytay, Palawan. Simultaneously, prizes and certificates of participation were also given to those who joined the AVP-making competition among LGU employees.
