there's a factor that makes one of Calaguas' island an enchanting getaway. the long stretch beach of white sand beach and crystal clear waters, looks like a long open field and a pool for many beach activities. Mahabang Buhangin's central beach area.though this beach doesn't have specific docking sites, the central beach area is always preferred to be docking sites since two of the most preferred camp sites are in this area. sites where a toilet and a deep well is available.whether one just sits down and look at the beach or try out beach activities, one can overcome boredom and stress here. what's different? here, you bring your own goggles, skim boards, and beach balls.among the most popular beach activities are beach frisbee, skim boarding, island hopping, shore walking, and snorkeling. with the popularity of photography, one can't miss out seeing at least one from each group using a digital SLR.both local visitors and the ones coming from the metro comprises the people flocking Mahabang Buhangin. on holidays during summer, according to the boatmen here, visitors already reach the hundreds. not as exclusive anymore as it was years back.but still far from being a party island beach like Boracay and Puerto Galera. getting to this island can be seasonal since Calaguas group of islands is located along the usual typhoon route. so during rainy season, it is less likely to get visitors.still, i won't be surprised to see more cottages and even a resort in the near future. like the other island beaches, i just hope they will build structures which is appropriate and suitable to retain the natural beauty of this beach.
