CALAGUAS ISLAND





Calaguas Island is located in the northern part of Bicolandia. You can do a DIY trip (Do It Yourself) but for us we joined a group tour that was arranged by a very good friend Maria del Rosario. Calaguas Island was part of my nine days trip in Bicol Region. So joining a group tour would be one less itinerary to worry about.

WHAT TO SEE?


Look at that view!!





Calaguas Island seemed to be a very popular destination to some tavel bloggers that I follow and even tagged it as "the happy beach".  Some of the guys even compared it to the famous Boracay with clear and white powdery sand beach but I just needed to witness it. And YES it was indeed a HAPPY BEACH!! 







I’ve seen too many photos of Mahabang buhangin / Halabang Baybay in Tinaga Island but seeing it in person ......AMAZING!!




WHERE TO STAY?

If you're not comfortable to sleep in a tent you can stay in Waling Waling Eco Resort. I wont be able to provide more details about the said resort but it looks neat and pretty outside. 


WHO TO CONTACT?

Sir Ruel was our group leader. His one of the best tour operator.  Aside from being a tour operator his also an artist. He can paint and he can create beautiful sand sculptures. This guy got too many inspiring stories and you will never ever get bored hanging out with him. The food that they prepared was just delicious PLUS EAT ALL YOU CAN PLUS Lechon! Yes LECHON!! Happy tummy, Happy guests in the Happy Beach! But wait there’s more,PLUS OPEN BAR !! They have vodka, tequila, rum, gin etc! KAMPAY!! 

Sir Ruel of CALAGUAS ATBP.THANK YOU! Our trip would not be that memorable if not for your team.











I don’t want to compare it to Boracay since Calaguas Island got its own beauty.  YES! The water is crystal clear, YES! The sand is white, YES! It has few people and YES! The view is amazing!!!  Definitely not my last visit.  I'll see soon Calaguas Island!!!
