Silversea Luxury Cruises A Limasawa Island

Limasawa is a tiny island in the Bohol Sea close to the Surigao Strait. It is considered that this is where the first Christian Mass was held in the Philippines during Magellan’s attempt to circumnavigate the world and the island holds the National Shrine of the First Mass. One of the historically and culturally interesting features is a replica of a Pintado longhouse. The word “pintados” (painted) goes back to Magellan’s companion Pigafetta and refers to the local custom of tattooing. View more

On Limasawa’s northeastern side is the San Agustin-Lugsongan Marine Protected Area with a reef ecosystem in a generally good state of health and interesting snorkeling. To the east of Limasawa is one of three bays in the Philippines where whale sharks tend to congregate –best sightings are between October and May.
