It seems as though Cagbalinad Island, one of the islets that are included in Caramoan Peninsula tours, has made a pact with the sea -- it can show its full beauty at low tide, but it will disappear completely during the high tide.
Gigantic rock formations with streaks of green vegetation greet visitors as they arrive in Cagbalinad Island. The sand here is white and fine, the waters clean and crystal-like, and the view is nothing short of breathtaking — you can have a clear view of Gota Island, another destination located just across Cagbalinad Island. At Cagbalinad Islands, stressed folks can take a relaxing break, photographers can take endless postcard-worthy shots, and adventure junkies can go and conquer the nearby rock formations– needless to say, it’s for everyone.
Cagbalinad Island is located in Caramoan Peninsula, Camarines Sur.
