Gradients and Waves at Maculabo

check my Calaguas Island first before reading this entry.

We packed our things and left the beautiful island of Calaguas before lunch time. All of us agreed that we'll surely be back here someday... Or very soon!

Since Maculabo is around 45mins away from Calaguas, we decided to visit this place too before going back to Paracale Port. We were all satisfied already with our first destination so never mind what this Maculabo would look like.

the big fishing boat we saw as we sail

Mang Lito, our boatman

We're just about to unboard the boat but my eyes were already drooling with amusement.

How can't I be impressed?


Whoa, another must visit island!

The heat of the sun didn't stop us from strolling the long white shore in Maculabo.

Notice the gradient of this beach, shades of blue in the water.


I cant say anything more but WOW! Ang ganda talaga ng Pinas. ♥


Some more shots to convince you more (in case you're still not)...


I have no plans to go swimming again, but the water is too irresistible..



super ok!

Whew, Maculabo island exceeded my expectations too. And after this one probably ang taas-taas na ng standard ko sa beaches. *winks*

I have been to Caramoan 2 years ago (please bear with my poor blogging skills back then) and I found that island beautiful.

But in my opinion, Calaguas and Maculabo Islands alone surpass the beauty of the 3-5 islands that I visited in Caramoan. It's no contest but Calaguas is really more spectacular!


Well, each island has it's own beauty so if you're in Bicol and you have lots of time, then I suggest you visit Camarines Norte and Camarines Sur. Wow Philippines! ♥

ooppsie, there still one more to come: Apuao Grande up next!

Roninkotwo said...

Chyng, sa sobrang paghanga ko sa mga napupuntahan mo, naubos na ang magagandang salita na pwede ko sabihin..wala na ko ma comment. Kaya hindi na lang muna ko mag kocomment ngayon..sa susunod na lang.Pasensya na...

RJ said...

DSLR na ba ang gamit mo rito, Chyng? Mukhang kabisadong-kabisado mo na talaga ang settings. Magaganda ang mga photos. U

Sa ilonggo kapag sinabing Kulabo, 'yon ang buko. MaKulabo, literally, siguro maraming buko.

Mas gusto ko ito kaysa sa Calaguas.

Chyng said...

@dave,
saya naman nagcocomment kna.. keep it up! Ü

@rj,
thanks for the info. kaya pala maculabo ay dahil madaming puno ng buco. :D
bttw, for me, it's still calaguas. mas serene dun at walang waves. pwede talaga magswimming. sa maculabo, more on surfing siguro.

Chyng said...

@gael,
im happy nakakacomment ka na. and yeah, i would love to travel with an exceptional solo traveller llike you. cheers! ♥

btw, ang swerte nyo ni Mishi, pareho kayong taga-Bicol.

decorator fabrics said...

The beaches are so beautiful. I love the view. It’s very compelling to go there.

Boracay hotel said...

Oh I love the sandy white beaches, it looks awesome!

ʎonqʎʇıɔ said...

your portrait of the boatman's really nice! :D

The Nomadic Pinoy said...

I always believe mas magaganda ang mga beaches sa Pilipinas compared to over-rated Thailand. Calaguas and Maculabo are really great examples!

Wil Yuarata said...

wow grabe sobrang ganda ng island! Guato ko makarating dun!:D Very nice photos anyway..:)

thella said...

grabeh chyng, you make us all envy your beach trips! keep them coming :D

fetus said...

oh may gahd oh may gahd oh may gahd! i soo like wanna go there na! it's so hot and i want beach bumming to the max!
looks like a great place to roll half submerged in the water on the sand, with buko one one hand, spf 50 lotion on your skin, shades to protect your eyes, and let the sun beat the crap out of you until you turn crinkly brown. :)

lechua said...

wow ..... so many beautiful untouched islands in phillipines! amazin..

the donG said...

Happy Trails said...

ganda talaga ng Pilipinas! daming unexplored beaches at ang galing mong maghanap kung nasaan! you are very resourceful! keep it up :-)

Chyng said...

@nomadic,
that's nice to know. kasi im never interested sa foreign beaches.

@doms,
apr9-11 long weekend agad?! whew, nagpapagaling pa ko ng sunburns. hihi

@happy trails,
let's keep searching our 7,107 islands! Ü

@everyone,
thank you all for the visit. ♥

Allen said...

kung ako napunta dito, di na ko babalik ng maynila! :))

ate chyng tingnan mo yung isang peek. perfect 45 degrees yung angle of elevation ng bundok. galing!

Lawstude said...

whoa. that indeed is a fine beach if ever i saw one. hope to go there someday.

off topic: about ur query, i think you need to reserve first for the river one adventure because the owner sat they are fully packed and lost of the time cannot accommodate walk-ins.

cdo to davao (via bukidnon) is about 3 hours so baka 10 am na kayo dumating sa davao. pwede yun sa pm na rafting kaya lang medyo mainit na nun.

Lawstude said...

typo errors lol:

sat = say;

lost = most;

:)

nicquee said...

yan din sabi ko after namin mag puerto del sol and hundred islands last weekend, ANG GANDA NG PILIPINAS! The question is, bakit di tayo naunlad kahit panay ang dayo ng turista sa atin because of these amazingly beautiful beaches?

lakwatsera de primera said...

looks like Maculabo is just as breath-taking as Calaguas based from your pictures. hmmm I can't wait to see it :-)

jedalyn said...

Chyng said...
