Buenavista: 'Rising surely in Marinduque'


On the occasion of the 94th Foundation Day of Buenavista, I noticed this sign. Surely this smallest, once-forgotten town of Buenavista, small but the most scenic place in Marinduque where the Malindig volcano looms over the lives of the peace-loving and culture-bound people living there, is steadily rising above the decades-old hardship and poverty. Small resorts and parks are being built, roads being upgraded, training programs and livelihood programs undertaken, the people no longer feel they are left behind and now recognize their importance in contributing their own share in the island-province's tourism development and economic progress. 

Buenavista girls sway to a graceful, flowing folk dance to celebrate Buenavista Day.

Sweet victory came quite early for Mayor Russel "Jing" S. Madrigal.
No one's running against him in  Election 2013!

Sense of direction recognized by the local women,
Kababaihang Nagkakaisa sa Diwa at Layunin, women united in spirit and in goals.

Boys from Bagacay rhythmically bang their kalutang bamboo instruments
to make their welcome presence strongly felt.

The luxurious Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa is situated in a
Buenavista island off the southwestern coast.

Concreted road in Libas leading to Lipata where one takes an 8-minute
speedboat ride or a 15-minute motor-banca ride to Bellarocca Island.

Road in Tungib-Lipata going to Dampulan, Torrijos
along Marinduque's southeastern coast.

The Libas-Yook road now upgraded.
Buenavista's new coastal park. Playgrounds for children and activity areas
now occupy the spot where an old market place once stood that kept the beach waters polluted.
