    Explore Yang-In Sand bar

    by monina_c Written Jul 2, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For photo enthusiasts, Yang-In Sandbar off Cagbalete Island is a MUST visit! Well, any beach lover will truly enjoy a couple of hours exploring this little sand bar that appears at low tide and disappears after the tide turns :) Nature lovers will appreciate the healthy stands of mangroves that surrounds it.

    Yang-In is a popular destination for Cagbalete visitors who look for alternative destinations aside from the strip of beach that front all resorts in the island.

    HOW TO GET THERE:

    To get to Yang-In sandbar you need to hire a boat which will fetch you from your resort on Cagbalete, take you to the sand bar and vice versa. Prices vary depending on the size/capacity of the boat. The smaller ones (6 - 8 pax) cost about P1500/round trip (USD 36) and the big ones (25-30 pax) cost P3,500/ round trip (USD 84). You can probably try to haggle but the price range will not depart too far from the ones posted above.

    Endless photo-ops!

    by zippee Written Oct 15, 2008

    With this part of the island being almost to yourself, with a long stretch of white sand, tiny fishes abound and birds preying on them, a nice blue sky and willing models, the photo opportunities are just unlimited.

    Be lazy

    by zippee Written Oct 15, 2008

    You can do that in the island, the island is serene, the pace of life is very slow and you are allowed to just laze around.

    Sleep or read to your heart's content

    by zippee Written Oct 15, 2008

    If the beach is not calling you (as maybe it's too hot or the tide's too low and the water's too far), just lay on the hammock, get a book or just sleep. Bumming is all you can do.

    Walk along the shore

    by zippee Written Oct 15, 2008

    And feel the surrounding. Except for the sounds of waves crashing on the shore, birds chirping not far away, silence, which is a luxury in the city, is all you'll hear.

    Cagbalete Island has a long stretch of white sand beach conducive for strolling anytime of the day. It is oftentimes deserted and quiet so that you can hear yourself think. :)
