After three failed attempts finally I was able to experience this beautiful island. You’ve read it right! I had three failed attempts just as what I have written in my previous post “Misadventure but not a Misfortune“, but nevertheless it was all worth it.
I traveled with my previous group that we called the “Calaguas Resbackers”. Because of our previous failed trip last February. This time there were additional people is our group. Apart from Rachel and Gerald, Lea and Homer, Ate MJ, Ate Gigi, Beverly and Kuya Bong which is the original part of the group. Beverly brought her son and her partner with same. Same as kuya Bong he brought his son Kyle.
Our travel time was just the same. It took us just additional 30 mins since Beverly brought some food and we had dinner first before we went head to Vinzon. We left Vinzon via boat about 9:30 am and it took us less than three hours before we get to Calaguas Island. The boat was exclusive for us. The boat ride was really challenging. The waives were so strong when we were in the middle of the sea and the sun is in its full blast.
Were all wet and exposed in the sun. Its a little bit exhausting being exposed under the sun and being soaked in salt water at the same time. After about two hours and thirty minutes of boat ride we finally get to the island. After getting out of the boat the first thing that I did was – lied down on a powdery white sand of the shore and told myself “Finally!”. The long travel time was all worth it as you experience the beauty of beach. The sea water is so cold and refreshing.
When we were in the island we swim, we had island hopping, trekking and took a lot of photos.
Calaguas Navigatours was our tour provider/host. They really took care of us. Thanks to Josh for giving us such a wonderful experience in the island. Aside from being a nice host and very accommodating people, I love the food they served. I love the Pork humba, Buttered Shrimp, Bicol Express and Laing. There are not just authentic and awesomely delicious, it was also buffet. I can’t even remember how many time we had our refill.
Over all the experience was extremely fun!
