Thriving on fishing, the municipality of Culasi in Antique province was our jump-off point to Malalison Island, one of its island barangays frequented by scuba divers.
At most, Culasi is a very simple community with a breathtaking countryside. Driving along its winding roads had been a visual feast despite the rainy weather. We passed by endless tracts of rice fields, dotted by nipa huts and coconut trees. The sunset beyond the fields and the sea had been particularly stunning.
And on the other side rests an expansive mountain range, locally called Mt. Madja-as, overlooking the whole town. It has no less than seven waterfalls visible on a clear day from anywhere in town—unfortunately, the mountain had been covered in clouds for the most part of our visit.
Culasi is an hour’s drive from Caticlan in Aklan province, Panay Island.
