Calaguas – Beautiful Island from its clear water, powdery white sand like Boracay and a peaceful surrounding is almost like a paradise 🙂 definitely one of the best island to visit nowadays! specially if you’re tired visiting crowded beaches. A very laid-back island, simple and stress-free, far from the hectic city life!
Superfriends class picture
Calaguas is an island located in the province of Camarines Norte, Philippines. As part of our DIY Bicol Region tour this year, my friends and I decided to include this lovely place in our trip. Guys! for almost 2 hours of rough boat ride was totally worth it.
Gonna share some photos why I love Calaguas 🙂
Pitched our tents by the beach and party party at night! 🙂 Tents are the main accommodation in the Island so make sure you know how to assemble it :). You can also rent a cottage nearby but if you are off the budget.. well, better sleep under the stars 😊 hehehe. The island’s source of water comes from a deep well you need to pay 10 pesos per bucket of water. Don’t expect too much from the toilet either as it very basic but really clean.
grrr! nakapikit ako hehe 😊 another great activity in Calaguas (katig ride)
Water here is excellent for snorkeling just remember to bring your own equipment or you’ll have to rent for it 😊 Even if you are just at the boat you can almost see it, truly amazing!!!
jump shot!!!😊 to complete the fun with barkada!
Spent the whole day swimming and sunbathing/ beach bumming like you own the shore 😊LoL! don’t forget to bring you monopod
Mahabang buhangin is one of the best beaches I’ve seen so far. The white sand, pristine water and the clear blue sky will surely melt all your stress and sadness. So peaceful and calm this is the best time for a great vacation.
What a nice view when you wake up in the morning! Fist thing you can do is to walk along this stretch pristine white sands with crystal clear blue water so relaxing and energizing 😊
Sobrang linaw😊 Water is so clean/ my picture says it all! 🔍
The view from the hills is spectacular and breathtaking. Sunset is love love love! 😊 Ask the local to find the pathways to climb the hills. No cellphone signal so don’t even bother, no calls and text for the meantime 😊
Overall, our stay was worth it and memorable. The place is just so amazing!! I can assure of that! The beach boasts of clear blue water, white fine sand, peaceful, serene and beautiful. Calaguas is definitely a piece of heaven 😊 the beauty of God’s creation at its best. I’ll be back again for sure!!
Wahh! super na-extend pa kami ng isang araw sa Coron!(Me, Leny, and JJ) How sad 😢! our supposed 9 AM flight was delayed and later on na-cancel na due to some technical problem (DAW) ng plane and to makeup for the airline’s inconveniences, we were given a free food and hotel accommodation plus a free ride pa from airport to the centro town which is Okey na sana kaso sobrang badtrip!! as in 😭 at my pasok pa kami kinabukasan WHY kaya? hmmm siguro may mga hindi pa kami nagagawa sa Coron na kailangan naming gawin 😜.
*think Misay, think!!! ouch.. OO nga! as per bestluck JJ nakalimutan nya raw bumili ng pasalubong at as per Leny gusto nya raw mapuntahan yung kubo sa MT. TAPYAS and ME well, hindi ko pa naakyat ang MT. TAPYAS at isama pang may kaylangan kaming resbakan sa AMPHIBi-ko ang isang staff nila roon hahaha *just kidding! (well brutal term nga eh noh as in RESBAKAN hahahaa LOL pagbayarin ba naman kami almost 1K as in lahat kami take note!! pagbayarin ng mga utensils na hindi daw namin naibalik at matress na binutas daw namin duh!!as if naman na kinuha namin yun diba!! dadayo ba namn kami ng pagkalayo layo para lang mangulimbat ng mga kutsara at tinidor 😂
Naku ha!! need talaga irefund ng Amphibihiko yung mga binayad namin ko or else (mawawalan sila ng mga costumer in the near future kung ganyan sila). Kaya if I were you guys! if you’re planning to go to Coron I wont suggest Amphibiko lodge. Period!
Maiba naman tayo sa aming lahat ako lang naman ang di umakyat sa MT. TAPYAS. (I made up my mind not to climb in Mt. Tapyas dahil nga ang taas-taas at di ko yata kakayanin 😂 and yet isa pa ako sa na kasama sa macancelled ang flight argh!! parusa ba talaga 😂
Maybe it is true that you won’t leave Coron without visiting the famous Mt. Tapyas (one reason I guess why I needed to stay 1 day more in Coron haha just to conquer it). As soon as the van left us in the hotel we immediately went to Tapyas and my nightmare start! To those who don’t know Mt. Tapyas is one of the popular destinations in centro town Coron and the main attraction is the big white cross plus you can see the view of the whole island. This viewpoint is really high that you have to walk up a lot of steps so don´t forget to take some bottled water with you. Wear comfortable shoes and breathable clothing because the mountain has 700 plus steps to reach the summit but once you’re on the top, embrace yourself for another breathtaking view of the coron bay. I recommend you to go there before the sunrise and sunset to catch the amazing view.
This is the continuation of my Coron escapade, My second part of continuous journey!. I have my previous post before and if you haven’t yet read the first one, click here. ☚
We started the day having a breakfast in Amphibiko lodge. Breakfast time to start the adventure! right? 😉 So I had a small serving of Cornsilog which is a short term for Corned beef, sinangag (fried rice) and pritong itlog (fried egg) plus a cup of kapeng barako that somehow helps complete my meal! then off to another expedition(but seriously I’m still GUTOM!! haha gutum much!)
Off into the ocean and we went to our first stop SIETE PICADOS: We went snorkeling there and I was so delighted to see different kind of fish, especially the stripe one! I like it so much! Many of it like to swim with me too but I was just at the stairs holding my lifevest (takut eh!) 😂. The boatman told us not to step on the bottom because there are many sea urchins laying or hiding on to the corals so better be careful guys! (it is bit scary! right? but because I am not a good swimmer, it’s okey for me to staying afloat hehe. All in all we just spend 30 minutes in that place taking pictures and exploring the place.
In order to get to BARRACUDA LAKE: Our next stop! is to climb up again on tricky limestone rock with the help of this dos-por-dos wooden stairs hehehe 😊. The pathway to the lake was too small that allowing only a few people to hang around (bawal malikot or else hulog ka! hahaha)
We had our trip last February 16-20 this year. My friends and I went to Coron,Palawan via Cebu Pacific. We availed one of DIY Coron’s service.
