maculabo island

if the view from the boat to the island is remarkable the view from the village to the shoreline is intimate. it is a spot where one realizes that the absolute escape for one to do is simply to do nothing.the colors blue, white and green radiates the islands of our archipelago. years back, we were only looking at Boracay, Palawan and Cebu when it comes to great beaches. but the time has come for Bicol to prove its grandeur in having the country's best beaches.one good stop is an island far Southwest of Calaguas and North of Paracale, the island of Maculabo. a long knife-like island with a nice beach strip that's about less than an hour trip from Paracale or Calaguas.the island holds a small fishing village hidden from the coconut trees. something unusual for an island dock site, where one can immediately see the nipa houses. here they are nestled by these trees.i was amazed when i saw this beautiful hidden village. you'll see thatched houses with walls made up of dried coconut leaves. just imagine how great a summer experience be in an island like this.for someone who grew up in an island, the wooden motored boats remains a favorite subject. a number of these lined up along the fine cream-colored fine sand beach makes an even great sight.we almost missed out dropping by this island on our way back to Paracale because of the strong winds during that day. but the boat man managed to bring us there since the waves was relatively fair. a great stop!
coming up... the reasons why i love Calaguas. a last look at the Calaguas series.

>james, you should! that will be a great experience. you can as well run in the morning along its beach line.

>carlotta, yes we have really nice beaches. thank you! basically that's main purpose of the series to bring the readers a closer look of the trip. di pa natin nagawa yung walk tour.

tama ka, madami pang iba aside from boracay. at mas maganda yung mga hindi pa commercialize areas, mas malapit sa nature at mas pure ang experience, naks!

A really wonderful series which well describes the beauty and the atmosphere of this amazing island.

The Nomadic Pinoy said...

The islands in this part of Bicol are really so alluring - oh, if only these were way out of the typhoon belt. But then, this just proves the Philippines have more beaches to brag about than overrated Thailand.

You love me for who I am, Like the stars hold the moon
Right there where they belong and I know, I’m not alone."

It's beautiful. One could easily find peace and sense of calmness in a place like that.

kcatwoman said...

that is indeed a paradise. thanks for showing us these photos. tama ka, mas maganda sa beach yung laid back lang. walang masyadong activities and people like bora, kumbaga just get a tan and swim. :)
