|The cheap source of livelihood in Tagudtongan, Parang Maguindanao, copras.|
"farmers and producers gain almost nothing from the extracted and planted resources that built the economy of this nation"
A quick visit to the white beach of Limbayan, Bongo Island revealed to us the other coastal community that exist on the other side of the Island, known as Tagudtongan. This barangay is another remote island community of Parang, Maguindanao.
where the port of the barangay serves as the primary gateway to other barangays in Bongo Island .
The port is located strategically in a cove section of the island, safe and protected from the harsh tides of the sea and has a with very deep anchorage for bigger marine vessels to dock in. There aren't much to do and to see in the area, as of the time of this writing, other than the vast coconut plantation as source of copra business and small scale local fishing activities.
