It is comforting to learn that the over tourism that happened to popular islands in the country, will never happen to Danjugan. This is because, the island enforces a strict 50-people carrying capacity per day. Reservations are done online with prospective visitors being made aware ahead of time of the environmental-friendly practices in the island. Upon arriving at the island, each visitor must attend a briefing to know the do’s and don’ts in the island. A local guide is assigned to each group of tourists ensuring no one wanders off the established trails in order to preserve the natural habitat of the wildlife species. “This is their home, we are just guests in their home, so we must respect their island” – Dave Albao told us during our island briefing.
