    Trek to Cape Engaño and sidetrip to Anguib Cove

    by dhelsa Updated Nov 3, 2010

    Cape Engaño is the first cape in Asia built in 1892 located at the north-eastmost part of Palaui Island. From San Vicente Port, hire a boat to Palaui Island. It would take 30 minutes boat ride to reach the jump-off to Cape Engaño and 30 minutes hike to reach the cape. If the waves are big, the boat will take a route to Puntaverde where you have to trek for 6 hours going there and back (cross three hills and a very loooongg seashore). September to January is not advisable to trek Palaui due to a very strong and cold wind due to hanging amihan. You can pitch tent inside the cape but it is better to camp at the beach down there. After trekking Cape Engaño, do not miss the the Anguib Cove / Beach. Its fine white sand and rock formations (at the right side) are great. From Cape Engaño, you can also reach Anguib by boat or again if the wave condition does not permit, it can be traveled by land.

    For boat and tour guide to Cape Engaño and Anguib Cove, contact ARNULFO PERALTA 09085021217 / 09154670964. I just spent a weekend there and I am touched with his hospitality and kindness. Kuya Arnulfo cooked food for us, arranged our homestay and transfer to Ilocos. He also fetched us in our place so we can catch our midnight trip to Ilocos. When you already finished and paid the tour? Who'd you think will help you like that?! All that, without a price.... I recommend Kuya Arnulfo. You can rent his boat for Php1,800 to Palaui Island (Cape Engaño) and Php2,500 for Palaui and Anguib Cove.

    Going around the island by boat is one activity you cant miss, see the beautiful beach at the eastern side, seeing the dos hermanas island on the northern part, the magnifiscent forest of the island, trully i cant say more. But make sure you dont have sea sickness most of the times there are waves which you will need to navigate to. If you dont know how to swim bring a life vest.

    What could be an adventure if you would not camp or spend a night in a pristine jungle like this? This is fun if you want to be one with nature you need to experience this. If you will do so make sure you have the right camping gear, tents, earth pad, blanket, portable stove, drinking water, food and of course torches and lanters. Just make sure to pick a right place to camp, i suggest the beach or somewhere in the mountains. Or on the abandoned Light house. and dont forget to bring you guts you will need them specially at night coz its so dark at night only the starts and moon will give you light.
