What’s inside this abandoned island mansion?

You’re racing along the water, holding onto the wooden sides of the boat as the waves throw you back and forth.  The wind runs its slick fingers through your hair and the sun throws its glorious rays down upon you.  Everything feels amazing. You’re high on the undeniable beauty of Palawan and cannot wait to hop off onto your next island as you sail through El Nido’s infamous Tour C. Slowly your next destination emerges…What adventures await you here?

Approaching Matinloc Island

What lies within?

As you disembark, the mood begins to change.  The sun shines a little less brighter and the wind lingers through your hair strands a few seconds more.  Dare you enter the unfamiliar concrete structure before you?  Come on in if you’re feeling as brave as teacake thought she could be…

Matinloc Island Mansion

You step through the dark doorway and things start to get creepy but your curiosity pushes you forward…

Go Teacake go go go…

Your feet crunch and munch the remains of what once was…demolished and left to rot…

Matinloc Island Mansion floor

You turn the corner and need to take a moment before you ascend the dark stairway but this is not the place to stop…

Matinloc Island Couch

You keep going, passing bathrooms you dare not enter, bedrooms you wouldn’t sleep in for a million dollars and eventually you reach the final floor…

Matinloc Island Bed

Someone must have been cosy in it at one point.  Time to get out of here and head into the gardens.  Let’s go!

Matinloc Island Statue

Someone’s been watching you but there’s even more eyes above the both of you, the sheep included

Matinloc Island Dome

Whoo! What a trip! Time to run back into the loving hands of the sun and discover that secret beach Matinloc Island has!

    So cool! This is a thing here in the states, we call it urban exploring. Cept… in your case you’re in much cooler surroundings.

    Would you ever “up” the excitement factor by trespassing into abandoned buildings?
