Quezon province is known for its beautiful sceneries, historical places, and natural parks and recreations. From religious monuments to cultural and historical places, tourists can also enjoy a paradise in the heart of Quezon Province: Mauban. It is a first class municipality of the province, which has a natural scenic view, wonderful people and delicious foods
Here are some of the places you could include in your itinerary when in Mauban, Quezon:
They say this island is mystical and is famous for its long seashore during low tide. It is located at Lamon Bay, Mauban and is often compared to Boracay Island of Aklan as it has tranquil turquoise waters and fine white sands that can only be reached via boat ride. It is best to visit this island during summer and while the ocean is calm because you wouldn’t want to be trapped in here with only your camping tent and few personal belongings.

Gat Uban Seawall
For me, the best time to visit this place is in early morning when you can feel the fresh air coming from the sea. According to the Tourism officers of Mauban, this particular place is a favourite venue of youths for music festivals. It was also declared as “Sub Port of the Philippines” in June 1969 and was registered as a Cultural Property Category II for Heritage Structure in July 2013 by the National Museum.
1725 Public Bath
It is not just a typical bath house you’ve seen in televisions where people usually sit side by side or being steamed in a big pool full of hot water. This public bath house was designed with two divisions to separate men from women. It was made of lime and shells and its fresh water came from a stream 200 meters away. It was also declared as an “Important Cultural Property” by the National Museum of the Philippines on July 2012 by the virtue of Republic Act 8492.
Rizal Hill Park
When in Rizal Hill Park or Calvary Hill you’ll have a glimpse of the whole Mauban. It is located at the heart of the town proper and cited by Choose Philippines as the highest monument in honor of the National Hero. It is part of the Sierra Madre mountain range, and because of its high location it was used as guard post and place for religious activities of the Spaniards during their stay until 1898. It also served as headquarters of the American soldiers until 1942 and fort of the Japanese army in 1942 to 1945. Rizal Hill Park was declared as a “Historic Site” by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines in July 2011.
