Lent is a time People flock to Marinduque to watch the famous Moriones Festival in a spectacular reenactment of the legend of Longinus. Devout followers troop to Marinduque yearly for this unique festival. If it's not your cup of tea, there's plenty of beaches too!
Traveling to the island province of Marinduque during the Holy Week was a test of patience. But rewards are abound. The stretch of white sand beach of Poctoy is proof to that. The privacy of a beach cove was perfect for sleeping right at the shore. The following day was excellent for getting a tan, playing beach volley, throwing Frisbee or just take a dip!
