I first heard of this place called "Partido Riviera" during a sharing by DOT 5 Director Nini Ravanilla a few years ago. Our Department of Tourism officials said that it can even rival that beauty of "French Riviera" so I was really intrigued by it but it was only last February 2014 when I passedby this area coz it's really an off beaten path especially if you're coming from Naga City on your way to Legazpi City.
Whenever my dad is home and on vacation, he always take us to a road trip and the video below captured one of the most scenic view he really raved about; to the point that whenever I have friends visiting us, he always volunteer to drive from CamSur to Albay as long we take this road. And so it has also become one of my favorite "road less travelled" in Bicol.
If I'm not mistaken, my parents first discovered it a few years back when my sister had her immersion in one of the communities in Partido and they drove to this area to pick her as well as brought some goods to the foster family where my sister stayed. Since then, they had countless road trips in Partido because my dad really liked the view.
Google Map may help you find your way to this scenic road. From ANAYAN CROSSING, you have to go to turn left going to Partido area and once you reach TIGAON town turn right to Sagnay Road. Check the Google Map below for routes and full instructions.

I was told that these aerial shots were taken by a drone.
Ohh how I wish I also have a drone! I'll definitely put that in my wishlist for 2016!
I also suggest you visit JOROAN Church in Tiwi and say a little prayer.
