  • Centinela Beach

    Claveria Things to Do

    The most precious hidden gem of Claveria in my humble opinion. This should not be missed in any trip to Cagayan. The waters are clear and calm, not too salty as this is near the point where the river meets the ocean. There is a rocky formation not too far from the beach which can be reached by wading when the tide is not too high.

    In as much as the sound of humming of the birds refreshes my soul, I can't help but be sad with the current state of neglect of this church. Aside from growing vegetation, we saw this huge bird's nest carefully built over one of the church's spot lights. There's also an unpleasant odour here that I could not distinguish.

    Kabag-kabag is a Tagalog term for this particular specie of small bats. These creatures thrive inside the Philomene Church, we saw so many of them at the walls and ceilings even during daylight. Maybe it's because the church's interior is dark. Interesting as they may seem, their droppings leave an unpleasant odor inside the church :0(.
