From the stunning white sand beaches of Caramoan in Camarines Sur, Tikling Island in Sorsogon and Burias Island in Masbate; Bicol, my hometown has another island to be proud of. Calaguas in Camarines Norte is another beach paradise that will inspire you to go out on a sunny day to reward yourself of a refreshing getaway you will surely enjoy. I thank my friend Sam Casuncad for showing me his picture of the island where I was awe-stricken by its beauty. I vowed myself; I will visit this soon. Now, I am on my way for an exciting beach escapade in this pristine island.

It became a tradition for my family to go for a swim to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions. I was glad that I learned about this emerging beach destination, Maniwaya Island from a friend. I was mesmerized to see the photos shared to me. With sheer excitement, we will celebrate my son’s upcoming birthday in this island through DIY travel, where we are used to.

Mt. Batulao is one of the few mountains that are already famous for climbers way back then. It stands at 811 meters with difficulty of 4/9. It is a minor climb and will take two to four hours reaching the summit. As you walk on the open trail you will be awed to see the stunning scenery of rolling slopes, natural landscapes and picturesque views of Batangas.

My tour of Batanes was a far cry from my previous trips of the different places in my country. It lags so much behind the modernization that it does not have luxurious hotel and huge shopping malls to boast. But while it is devoid of modern amenities, the island province emanates charm that soothes, mesmerizes and captivates. Now, that we are in our last leg of our tour, we will savor every minute to feast on another breathtaking sights and to capture memorable memories.
