From here we went south-west along the coast to Sibunag, the sea here is muddy and not inviting. Sparse fishermen houses line the coast before reaching the tiny village of Sibunag, where you will find the first small shop, they sell very good and cheap local peanut butter there. In this area there's also a cock fighting arena, seems like everybody is here when there are mach going on.
Going down you will reach the other side of the island and the settlement of Poblacion, with a few eateries and shops.
From here we went down to the coast to Alubihod beach and the Mangrove Forest (JBLMF Ecological Park - Villa Igang). Here there are some accommodation, mainly expansive (compared to the Philippines standards) resorts, but there supposed to be a camping area in the park, even though we didn't saw it. One of this resort will allow you to camp for a small fee, go 'til the end of the road and you'll find it. It has a very nice beach but can be noisy with locals making 24h barbecues(!).
From there you have no choice but going back up to Poblacion, then another climb awaits you on the road to Jordan, the capital town of the island and the only place where to find an ATM. From Jordan there are ferry (this time nice and almost safe RoRo ferries) that would bring you to Iloilo in Panay island.
