for me to fully bring you around the island, i'll put names on each side of the island so that it will be easier for me to represent the areas that we've visited. names of the shorelines are completely unofficial and are certified dong's idea. i hope that this will help you by the time you visit the island.we have set camp between the beach side of Adelante and Limpyo. this side is the longest beach shoreline of the island of Capones. we were the only ones camping in the island that time. we were 14 in the team and set six tents. set up our bonfire for the night's fellowship. since it was still around 4:00pm, we decided to check out the other side of the island. we went to Maryada beach front passing by dense bushes. Maryada beach has a larger flat camp area but we still preferred to camp at Adelante because the sea is calmer on that side and the area is quite cleaner. one can just run to the shore and swim. a view of huge rock formations on both sides are impressive. these rocks separates Maryada beach shore to the Huego beach shore.the waves are larger here because it is facing an open sea. this is the South China sea between the Philippines and Vietnam. from here, you'll have a view of Kamino hills.you can hike your way up to some of the hills here to get a panaromic view of Maryada.next post will bring you other parts of the island including the hike towards the Huego hills. watch out for really good shots of Lawstude of the Great Capones island.
