CAGBALETE is one of the most beautiful island in Luzon at Mauban; Quezon Philippines. It’s part of Lamon Bay and Pacific Ocean. This paradise is one of the best beach resort I’ve ever been. It has magnificent water and fine white sand where you can’t help yourself and just stay on the beach for long.
The breeze…; calmness of the sea..
and the very hospitable locals who guided us through our stay (Tiyo Dodong and Tiya Marie along with their cute daughter Nini).
During dawn till morning you can enjoy the cold water since it’s high tide (or
TAIB for locals and HIBAS for low tide).
In the afternoon as the moon sets;
you will be amaze because the water slowly disappear and you’ll see the underneath.
There is also a river connected to the sea
and different creatures living in the island
such as small mr. crab and “kuray”.
There are so many things you can do at CAGBALETE Island boating; snorkling;
exploring name it. As they say “It’s more fun in the Philippines!”.
From MANILA to MAUBAN: You can ride at JACLiner bus in Cubao. (3.5 – 4hrs ride / 400php) then there’s a passenger boat (malaking bangkang de motor) at MAUBAN that can take you to CAGBALETE Island for 50php each (one ride only).
The boat starts taking passengers at 10:00am and will leave at 10:30am. (for us since we are group of 15peeps who went there we rented a boat for 1500php back and fort for the whole day).
hehe.. that’s how they do it.. ^^
Enjoy as we did – enjoy a lot. Thanks be to God.
