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!)

Ey doodes, sup! I am Ven, living life in the beautiful country of the Philippines! This is my third installment on our Cagayan Ilocos Trip! Today, we visited the Palaui Island in Sta.

Hope you guys enjoyed!
I have always wanted to go to Palaui. I have been invited to or initiated three different trips every year since 2011, with one group, we even bought our plane tickets already, but decided to cancel since there was a typhoon in Cagayan exactly on the dates of our trip.

This trip has got to be for the record, the longest and tiring trip that I had. But I can say that it was all worth it. This trip wasn't really that planned, since it was supposed to be my dad's business trip…and it ended up as a family vacation.
Day 1: We left Manila at 3am and our first stop was at the Quirino Bridge in Ilocos Sur. A short pho ...
Located almost 2 kilometers from San Vicente Port in Sta Ana, this island is situated between Luzon mainland and Palaui Island. This rocky islet is called by the locals as Manidad Island, but outside it is more known as the Crocodile Island. It is named because it is said to resemble like a crocodile when viewed from afar.
After having beach-hopping we were brought here by the boatman. Because of the imposed time limit due to the ongoing taping of the Survivor reality TV series at that time, we savored every second of our stay here. Its almost 10 in the morning when we arrived here and the ...
The Crocodile Island in the town of Sta.Ana, Cagayan derived its name from that large aquatic reptile that, they say, has the same formation as the island. So, it's just the form of it, no actual crocodiles live here!
This is our second destination for the island hopping. Please check out our Palaui Island and Anguib Beach posts too!
