calaguas

i wonder whether Jens Peters, the German freelance journalist and author of the book Travel Philippines, missed out the Calaguas group of islands as it was not featurted in his book or did he intentionally kept it as a secret when he knew how foreign tourists started flocking the island of Boracay.we left the pier of Paracale around seven in the morning so as to get to the island by nine. it is a two-hour trip with a medium sized fishing boat and an hour and a half with a larger boat. crossing a part of the Philippine sea and the Pacific ocean.there's a drama of seeing first the hilly islands of Calaguas composed of four big islands and an estimate of eleven islets. Tinaga island being the largest, also has the most favored beach shore which is Mahabang Buhangin and often mistakenly considered as Calaguas island.just when the boat docks at the Mahabang Buhangin shoreline, you won't immediately be awed as it looks so ordinary. not until you get a view of the whole cyan-colored clear waters and powder fine sands.
i can't help but be awed by this beach asking myself many times, how come this beach is so beautiful. for a long time, i've been looking for a beach this nice. secluded. a great escape.

what a place - wont' be secluded and lesser known for long. people i think are getting tired of the crowded boracay they are looking for next frontier so to speak.

the only drawback for now is getting there, but sure as it gets more popular, there will be more and better ways to get there ASAP.

I agree with your comment about travel books, in general. The same observation for the "1000 Places To See Before You Die". It is a big turn off when they don't take effort to update it. That's why it's good to get oriented with reliable travel blogs like yours.

Huwow, ganda nga talaga.. sa photos pa lang, pano pa kung mismong maglakad ako at magtampisaw sa isla. Great escape nga.. ang worry ko lang ay boat trip..
now that you've published this in Eskapo, umpisa na yan na maging next Boracay. dapat pala mapuntahan na kagad.
