For the 6th annual summer getaway with the gang, we decided to conquer the northest part of the mainland of Luzon... Cagayan Valley!!! As you know, we find pleasure in traveling long distance just to discover remote and virgin beaches in the Philippines.
It takes 12 hours to travel from Manila to Tuguegarao by bus. We left 9pm last April 30 and arrived in Tuguegarao at around 10am the next day and took a 3-hour van trip from Tuguegarao to Sta. Ana port. Oh boy halos mgmelt pwet ko but it's okay, I signed up for this so pangatawanan mo jan, Jing! lols.
Before we proceed to Anguib Beach, we bought some fruits, vegetables, canned goods, fresh fish, meat and other raw food for our 3 days and 3 nights of camping. Ala-survivor na namin kami neto!Anguib Beach is located within the cove. You can reach the beach by trike or by boat. Since the road to the cove is not passable that time, we took the 45-minute boat ride.My heart leapt as we disembark from our boat. I was so excited to dip my body in the water. It is so pristine and the scenery reminds me of Calaguas. The beach is indeed beautiful!
We stayed in this hidden paradise for 2 days and 2 nights! We survived the life without electricity and proper convenience. We almost ran out of food. Good thing our boatmen were so kind to buy us food in the market in Sta Ana. Locals in Sta Ana are so kind and accommodating. If you are planning to visit this place, you can shoot me an email for the boatman's number.
Our next stop is Palaui Island which was used as the filming location for Survivor: Blood vs. Water last year.
I will blog about this on my next post.
