Hinoba-an is classified as a first class municipality and was my first real introduction to Negros Occidental, and left me craving for more. This is the place in which my love of Negros was born and it if wasn’t for my work, I would possibly have never discovered. My first thoughts, as I stood there gazing out to the Sulu Sea, breathing in the fresh air was “why isn’t this place crawling with tourists?”
Hinoba-an is a small town and aside from the hustle and bustle of the town centre, there isn’t much to the place, and only a handful of local style resorts. However, what Hinoba-an lacks in infrastructure, it more than makes up for with the natural beauty this place has been adorned with.
A postcard perfect beach – swaying palms trees, golden sand and the beautiful blue waters of the Sulu Sea. Once again, where are all the bloody tourists?
Rice terraces are a fairly common site just about anywhere there are mountainous areas. This one is on the way up to the mountains in Nabulao.
Cameras never do justice to these types of photos. Mountain after mountain after mountain as far as the eye can see, unfortunately, just not in this photo
