We all need to get out and have a break every once in a while. Just let out all the pessimism get out of your system to make your life much lighter.
The city jungle is not the place to be if you are looking for a great relaxing scenery and a fresh cool breeze. Filipinos have the advantage to go to a peaceful place within just minutes or a few hours. There are so many beaches to choose from in this nature-filled country but of course, there are also still much more that are not as exposed to the public compared to the others.
The Calaguas Islands are situated in the province of Camarines Norte, more or less 300 kilometers from Metro Manila and is just a boat ride away from the mainland. The Calaguas Islands are gradually getting acknowledgement for its astounding hiking trails, unspoiled sea water and amazing white beaches. Some backpackers will prove that despite being relatively unknown to the general public, the Calaguas Islands are one of the best travel destinations in the country.
The widest stretch of white sand beach called Halabang Baybay (Long Beach) by the locals is a cove located in the Tinaga Island. It is the loveliest paradise with its beautiful and fine white sand, spotted with volcano rock on its both ends. This place is the most visited site for camping and swimming.
