Calaguas Things to Do

    So the Philippines has 7107 islands and some of these islands are really popular and would have many tourists/backpackers to visit. Examples of these are Palawan, Boracay and Bohol. I definitely would say that these places are great as i've been there also. But among all the beaches i've been to, I'd say the best beach/es would be Calaguas Islands. I'm not sure but maybe because there's nothing there except pure white white white fine fine fine sand. The travel to go to the place will have you sit on a boat for 2-3 hours just to get there. These 2-3 hours also include the waves (waves that go to Bagasbas beach) for surfing. So its a rough ride and a long ride. But as you see the beach from afar and you come near, all you see is white. And once you step down to that white fine sand, it was definitely worth it. Since its not really that popular yet, when we went there there was no one in the island except 5 of us. Which means we like "OWN" the white fine beach. It was so relaxing but we had to leave at around 4pm or 3pm, because we had no plans of camping in. This place is a camping place as there are no resorts here and for me, it makes it special because of this.

    Favorite thing: Calaguas is a group of islands with Powdery, fine, white sand beach. the water is clear as well. It is government owned so there are no commercial establihsments, no resorts, no vendors around. There are 2 nippa huts which i remember, which can serve as your shade. The 3 hour boat ride with the waves to this islands is worth it. Camping would be a good option as it is not too popular yet, thus when we went there, we were the only people on the island.

    Fondest memory: "owning" the beach since no one was in that island. Best beach to i've been to which is very virgin.
