calaguas island

If I’ll be asked to name a good place where one can commune with nature, I will definitely say and guide them to Mahabang beach in Calaguas Island , Camarines Norte. 

I chose that place because the first time I went there, I immediately fell in love with it and gone under its spell. 

Talk about world-class beach. It was undoubtedly one of the best beaches I’ve seen. 
Crystal clear water and grains of sand which I consider as powder-like. 

Going to Mahabang Buhangin in Calaguas Islands, was a very long boat ride which took us about 4 hours however, it was not a boring one. I enjoyed many breathtaking views of some hills on the horizon, different rock formations, and when I looked down, I even had a glimpse of some colorful fish thru its clear water. My camera had a great time and took several snapshots of these views on my way to the beach! 


The beach’s beauty is still preserved for it is still left untouched by commercialization. Nature at its best was the first thing I thought of when I visited the beach. 

My eyes witnessed the delightful display of the bright greenish blue color beach and its rich, virgin forest .

I also enjoyed the breathtaking sunset view of the island.

  I fell asleep with the sound of splashing waves and woke up the morning after  with a perfect sunrise.  

My stay in the island was full of fun. What made it more fun was I went there for free. Free accomodation, free food and drinks.    A few weeks back,  I did surfing in Bagasbas.  I got to know a guy whom I rode with the same bus from Naga going back to Manila. We had a good chat and kinda click right away. He enjoyed my antics and my travel stories. I learned he owns a property in Calaguas Island.   After knowing that very important info, I looked him in the eyes and told him flat on his face...YOU are my best friend now. Best friend now and forever. He laughed his ass off and said nasty thing in a funny kind of way. The conversation ended up and I got  an invite from him. A weekend at  his rest house in the island. I was one lucky guy. USER FRIENDLY guy.

My stay in the island was full of fun because I met my friends from my workplace. A couple who also love to travel. We had a good time and shared food together. Not talking about office politics.

My stay in the island was full of fun because the night was made alive with the presence of a mobile bar. I  met some  foreigners, backpackers like me and we partied all night.
