Taborcillo Island is also known as “The John Wayne Island”. This well-known actor was the owner of the island in the seventies until he died. The old fishermen of the area still remember the big “gringo” from Hollywood who used to spend some Mme at the island and fishing in the area.
The property has 20 hectares titled ( 44 acres ) and a circumference of 4 kilometers of white and yellow sand beach.
The vegetation is a tropical dry forest with trees and bushes. The east part of the island has an area covered by cactus ( approx. 2 hectares ) which is declared as a “bird sanctuary”, due to the fact that many seabirds and others use this area to build their nests and raise their fledglings. The Smithsonian InsMtute and the Audubon Society have some extensive bird watching studies of the Island.
The island currently only has building structures, which were previously the hotel and facilities.
Here some current pictures.
