San Agustin is blessed with 24 islands and islets scattered all over Lianga Bay, which faces the Pacific Ocean. The group of islands is called Britania, named after its barangay.

Most of the islands are uninhabited with minimal or no vegetation. But all have one thing in common: they are surrounded with crystal clear waters.

Ifugao Rice Terraces may be younger than we think
Pia Ranada Apr 29, 2015
Far from pre-dating Spanish colonization, the iconic rice terraces may be just as old as some colonial-period churches, a team of archaeologists find. A team of scientists are set to present new findings that peg the age of the iconic rice terraces at 300 or 400 years instead of the long-assumed age of 2,000 years.

In 2001, the United Nations put the rice terraces in its list of endangered World Heritage sites. Efforts of the community, government, and private sector led to its removal from the list in 2012.

Ifugao's famed rice terraces face modern threats
The stepped paddy fields, as well as the Ifugao's traditional lifestyles, are facing unprecedented threats amid the relentless forces of modernity. Apr 29, 2015
