As a european it really shows you that this war was turely a world war when you see that people from such a remote island in Asia died in the war.

Cuyo island has some of the best beaches i have seen in the Philippines and they are totally deserted by tourists, so this is a place to go if you want a fantastic beach all by yourself.
That also means that you do not have facilities such as water sports, beach bars and so on.
I couldn't help thinking that this place was a little like Boracay without tourists.Related to:
You might be suprised to see that tiny little Cuyo Island has one of the biggest and best preserved forts in the entire country.
It was build by the spanish in 1680 and has a church and a convent build in to it and it's quite impressive.
It's located right in the middle of Cuyo town and easy to walk to if you arrive with the ferry.Related to:
