Cape Engano is located on the Palaui Island in the town of Sta. Ana, Cagayan. Sta. Ana is about 3 hours away from Tuguegarao/ You can take a van or a bus going down there.

From the town center of Santa Ana, you can take a trike or a asked the van to drop you to San Vicente port which is about 10-15 minutes away.

From the port, nagkita na kami ni kuya Edwin and he was the one who made arrangements for our boat.  I really want to see the Anguib Beach since base on the rivers ay super ganda daw, from 1700php we're able to make a side trip to Anguib for a total of 2500php.

From Aguib Beach, to the light house was one hell of a ride. Ang mga alon ay sobrang lakas, pinakamalakas, mataas at madaming alon na naranasan ko... Natalo nito ang dami ng alon ng Guimaras, ang mataas na alon ng Anawangin... imagine this, kapag humampas sa amin ang alon ang bangka namin ang tumatalbog.. as in literal tumatalbog... ganun kataas kami kung tangin.

But there's no turning back.. we are actually lucky to make this boat ride rather than trek the mountains for 6 hours.. we do not have the luxury of time...

After almost an hour, the sea was calmer...  we are o the route na dapat ay dun talaga ang daan if we did not go to Anguib beach.. sobrang opposite naman ang dagat dito, payapa. Then from here, we started our 30-40 minute trek going to the light house and i must say.. the view was soo amazing...

Napaka green ng mga damo, and ang landscape was so beautiful... I've seen some pictures of Batanes, and i can say parang Batanes cya sa ganda.  

Trekking the mountain going to the light house was so easy.. half of it, concrete cement ... tapos mga damo na ung iba...  

Upon reaching the mountain was indeed breath taking.. nakakrelax ang hangin, lalo na when we went up to the light house.. unfortunately di namin narating ang pinakatoktok since nakalock ito but never the less maganda at mahingin pa din sa kintatayuan namin..

We spend about an hour to enjoy the place and took some pictures.  The feeling of happiness and peacefulness was just sooo awesome...  if this thing could last a lifetime ill be the most happy person in the world =)
