    Dirty Stinky Water :(

    shanties lining the shore

    If you decide to rent a small boat for the return trip to Mauban instead of the regular boat, be prepared for the shock of having to thread dirty, stinky water when you get off the boat on the shores of the town. Small boats prefer to land on the beach next to a small shanty ville on the left side of the waterfront where the towns sewage water flow into the sea. The trash from the households lining the shore doesn't help the cleanliness of the waters at all.

    Be sure to bring isoprophyl alcohol with you so you can cleanse your feet after the dunking it will get. BTW, there is a faucet upstairs in the Talipapa where you can wash your feet. :)

    Wading

    There are a few small patches of sea urchins in the waters of Cagbalete Island so be sure to watch where you put your feet. iIt is safer to wear aqua shoes or something similar when swimming or wading there.

    Being in the middle of nature has its drawbacks and one of them is the heavy mosquito population! :)
    Be sure to bring your mosquito repellent with you when you go to Cagbalete.
