May 24, 2024

If you are in La Union and thinking of a unique place to visit, then you might want to consider going to Immuki Island located in Bolaoan.

Immuki Island is one of the most popular places to visit when in Balaoan, La Union because of its scenic view, accessibility, affordability, and general safety, especially for little swimmers. It was recommended to us by the staff at Summer Coastal Suites when we asked them if there was a nearby beach resort that the kids could swim in. Good thing that it was just a quick 15-minute drive from Summer Coastal Suites. With that, we spent an entire morning just enjoying the waters and the view of Immuki Island.

    • Parking is free but do remember to give a tip (any amount) to the attendant on duty.

    • Cottages are for rent depending on the number of hours. One of the operators in Immuki Island offered us P500 for the entire morning. There are also designated areas where you can grill food if you want to eat here.
    • Rafts (or balsa) can be rented if you want to go to the island and explore the lagoons. The raft operator can also double as a photographer or videographer for travelers. However, the water is shallow so you can just cross the water from the beach to the island without a boat.
