Pan de Azucar Island, Agho Island Sandbar, Bulubadiangan Sandbar and Lumpatan Beach - All The Coastal Beauties of Concepcion, Iloilo, Philippines

When I search for Google Images with the keyword Pan de Azucar, two locations emerged from the search - a Pan de Azucar Island located in the popular Rio de Janeiro where it towers over the ocean and other surrounding islands and faces the famed Christ the Redeemer and the other - the Pan de Azucar Island in Concepcion, Iloilo, Philippines with Mount Manaphag as its centerpiece. These two Mount Pan de Azucar islands (Spanish Pan de Azucar means Sugarloaf) have something in common - a protruding hill or mountain towering over the other surrounding mountains and hills thus it stands out because of their sheer size. There are also some sugarloaf mountains in other parts of the world. They are so-called sugarloaf mountains because of their tall, conical shape resembling an old sugarloaf of the 19th century. 

Other than the Pan de Azucar island where the Mount Manaphag is also located, other places of interest in the town of Concepcion, Iloilo are Bulubadiangan sandbar, Agho Island and Sandbar and the Lumpatan (Hiligaynon word for Jumping) beach where some people do some cliff diving. 

Take note these islands which are part of the town of Concepcion are several nautical miles away from Sicogon Islands and Gigantes Group of Islands which are from the town of Carles, Iloilo so they are far apart separated by the Visayan Sea

The pristine Pan de Azucar Island in Concepcion that can rival Isla de Gigantes. This photo was taken by Coyxxx blogger specifically on this link https://www.coyxxx.com/2016/06/the-charms-of-concepcion-islands.html

The idyllic Pan de Azucar Island one can experience the surreal feeling of paradise and you can see Mount Manaphag in the distance. This picture was taken by Pusang Kalye.net blog.
