  • Sabangan Island- in Barangay Nayom. It is a quiet space surrounded by many trees as well as mangroves. You can lounge around the sand or play beach volleyball. On some areas, cooking is allowed so visitors can bring food without paying a corkage fee.
  • Balaki Island- Ideal for snorkeling, camping and swimming. And since this is a private island, getting access requires coordination with the Infanta Tourism Office and budget set aside for the gasoline of the boat and meals for the boat crew but the stay is free. The marine life in the vicinity is rich and healthy proof is the presence of seagrass around the island. Also the waters aren't too deep and the currents are calm so guests can enjoy they stay all day long.

Infanta's proximity to the sea means you can find fresh seafood and dried fish products in local markets.
