Serenity of a destination depends on its remoteness. Travel time is always considered by everyone and a great factor that affects their decision in visiting a  certain place. The longer the travel time the greater the possibility of having a tranquil, isolated, and off-the-beaten destination. Luckily, an island just 15 minutes away from the coastal municipality of Culasi, Antique has these qualities.

Its name is as majestic as the local legends to which the island was said to have originated. One version tells of how the islands of Culasi–Mararison, Batbatan and Maningning–were the three offspring of the beautiful Madja-as and the noble Kanlaon.
