Donsol, Luzon, Philippines

Donsol is a sleepy fishing village in Sorsogon Province in south western Luzon, Philippines. Donsol is a popular tourist destination for viewing and swimming with whale shark. The water is so rich with plankton that whale sharks congregate here in the hundreds from February to May.
