Diura Fishing Village

Saven Travel
We headed to Diura Fishing Village - this is a sitio in the eastern part of Mahatao town where an association of fishermen called Mataw practices the traditional fishing for Arayu (dorado). The fisherman's houses at the foot hill, were mostly unoccupied. Because they only stay here during the fishing season (March to May). The fish ponds serves as storage for the fisherman's catch. They have ritual called kapayvanuvanua signifying the start of the fishing season which usually falls in March. The village offers a good view of the Pacific ocean and Mt. Iraya.
