Summer in October| Cagbalete Island

Cagbalete Island – Summer in October 2016

The Island is part of municipality of Mauban Quezon.


Sabi nga nila- Pag biglaan natutuloy. 2 days before the 2nd weekend of October, I felt the need of some sun kiss and sand on my skin. So I asked my travel buddies to go out with me, they are my office/seat mate, so it’s easy for us to plan out trip. Another biglaang vacation leave – and yah it’s impossible, so we request for a slide shift instead, to make this trip possible.

It was a fun weekend , traveling with Alexis and Nerie is always fun. After paying all necessary fees, tent set up, and prep our food for lunch, we went to  island hopping (that includes sand bar and snorkeling). Kind a pricey for a group of 3, it will cost 1200-1800php. But its all worth it.
