Anguib Beach and Cove is located on the north-western tip of the province of Cagayan. It features calm waters of different shades of blue, from bondi blue to turquoise, from deep sky blue to azure. It is a great spot for scuba diving or snorkeling. Water sports like jet skiing and motor-boating are also some of the activities near the beach. It is also considered as 'Boracay of the North.'
Anguib Beach and Cove News
Anguib Beach. These two words sent a tinge of excitement when I read that it was our destination. For years, I've wanted to reach its pristine waters and white sandy shore but failed despite visiting the province several times. But reaching Anguib Beach in Cagayan is not easy. First, its in Sta. Ana, the northeasternmost municipality. Second, for now, the fastest way to get there is a motorized outrigger boat (banca) from the wharf. And third, because it is at the northern tip, travel is limited especially during the amihan or the northeast monsoon when the sea is rough.
But that is also it ...
After days of rain and gloomy weather that hampered our activities in the mainland, the sky finally cleared on the last day of our trip. Just in time too, since our destination for the day was the beautiful island of Palaui, just off the coast of Sta. Ana in Cagayan
The first time I set foot in Palaui was back in 2011. I remember the roller-coaster like waves that propelled our boats towards the island where the ruins of an abandoned lighthouse sat atop a hill. There were a few rumors from locals that the hit reality show Survivor was going to be filmed there. Fast forward six years later, ...
Artist Jason Mraz once shared, "My home isn't about being grounded in one corner of the planet. It's about being in love and being lost in the middle of an amazing adventure, witnessing sunbursts over horizons of every time zone". I couldn't agree more… Spot on words that have never been spoken.
A cove is a small, circular to an oval type of bay or coastal inlet, usually with narrow, restricted entrances.
The Philippines, being an archipelago, have some well-tucked and serene coves perfect for swimming and bumming. These coves are ideal places for swimming because they are believed to ...
Palaui Island is in Cagayan Valley Region, northeastern part of the Philippines. So, how did I learn about Palaui? Thanks to the 'Survivor' US TV Show!
A Reminder: Do not forget to bring your sunblock, hat or a cap, and mini fans! It gets really HOT at this part of the country! :)
How did we get there?
Manila – Tuguegarao – Sta. Ana Cagayan – Palaui Island
– Manila to Tuguegarao via Cebu Pacific (for a low cost due to seatsales of course and my GetGo points!)
– Tuguegarao Airport to Van Terminal: there are tricycles waiting outside the airport. Cost is Php100 per tricycle ...
The sea touching the sand
The sea touching the sky
The picture looked perfect
Freedom and silence is what it gives
But the sky is unreachable
The sea is unending
A bitter truth that it always meets
but being together will never be
That's just how most people are so wrong
Doesn't mean that it looked perfect means it's complete
Doesn't mean it has everything means it doesn't need anything
Sometimes, it's the simplest thing is all that makes us fulfilling.
The boatmen lead us to an area of Anguib Beach where there is no entrance fee. However, Bhing wanted us to transfer in a much be ...
