The Panumbagan Sand Bar warmly welcomes its visitors since April 2014. New infrastructure facilities were established for the comfort and enjoyment of the tourists. There were a total of twenty one (21) floating cottages, connected by floating bridges made of industrial bamboos, that were built in style, in three octagonal rings. Each ring is composed of seven (7) cottages. Said facilities were established by the Provincial Government of Sorsogon, headed by Honorable Governor Raul R. Lee, in support to the tourism development of the municipality of Pilar. The cottages were designed by an interior designer, Architect Melo Naval of Provincial Tourism Office.
