No beach, no problem, says Brooke’s Point Councilor Ton Abengoza
Though it is located in Palawan, Brooke’s Point has no white sand beaches and islands.
But that hasn’t stopped the town from making the effort to attract tourists, as Brooke’s Point Councilor Ton Abengoza shared on Facebook.
Brooke’s Point officials led by Mayor Maryjean Feliciano welcomed members of the 2018 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) National Evaluation Team during a visit to the town.
The welcome was held at Brooke’s Point Agriworld, a place where visitors could get a taste oft the farm life.
It would soon be an ideal place for seminars, conventions, and team building activities, said Abengoza.
Because the town has no beaches, it decided to work with what it got and developed a 6-hectare lot into a haven for nature-related activities. At the Agriworld, visitors could plant or harvest their own rice, fish for tilapia that you could have for lunch, and drink buko juice to your heart’s content for a reasonable sum.
Who says swimming and island hopping are the only things you can do in Palawan?
Brooke’s Point offers alternative activities!

A lunch prepared for the team @ Brooke’s Point Agriworld, where a tourist/visitors/Guests could experience a “Farm Life” and at the same time soon a venue to Seminars, Conventions and Team Building at very reasonable charges.
Since we have no White Sand beaches & Islands, Mayor Atty. Maryjean Delos Angeles Feliciano worked hard to utilize what we got, this is a 6-hectares land bought by LGU Brooke’s Point, wherein you can experience farm life, (Plow & Plant/Harvest rice yourself & other farm activities), Abundant spring water (even in El Nino) that led to Tilapia raising in “FISHdaan” that you can fish and our Chef will cook your own catch, isn’t that exciting? 😀 Aside from always available Buko Juice (our welcome drink) & Buko meat. etc. With only P50.00 entrance fee, what else can anyone ask for? 🙂 We’re doing our best to support Dept. Of Tourism (DOT) thrust for “GO PALAWAN, GO SOUTH!,” Abengoza posted.
