7 Spots to Visit If You Want to See Amazing Coastlines of Catanduanes

Catandunes, the Batanes of Bicol?

Catanduanes is an island located south-east of Luzon island. And part of the Bicol region. Being the 12th largest island in the Philippines, Catanduanes offers a lot of natural attractions awaiting to be discovered.

The province’s natural wonders are pretty evident on their coastlines. So here is a list of spots to visit if you want to see the amazing coastlines of Catanduanes.

1. Balacay Point, Baras, Catanduanes

I’ve been here back in October 2015. Balacay point directly faces the Pacific Ocean and can be reached byjust driving on the hill. On it’s right side is Puraran Beach coastline and on the left is the Gigmoto town coastline.

2. Binurong Point, Baras, Catanduanes

I went here just recently, and unlike Balacay to reach the view point there’s a 20-30 mins trek. Which, I didn’t know, so I wasn’t prepared I even wore a white dress. But the trek going there was not that difficult though so all good.

3. Bote Lighthouse, Bato, Catanduanes

I’ve thought of going here, but my heart couldn’t take it so will visit here the next time I’m on the island. I’ll save a lot of courage first, to conquer climbing up the lighthouse. 😂

 4. Nagngangang Buaya Point, Bato, Catanduanes

 Another interesting point in the town of Bato, with a site of a crocodile islet. I bet Capt. Hook won’t go here. 😂

5. Gogon Point, Gigmoto, Catanduanes

 Now, going north-east of the island in the town of Gigmoto. This point is part of the Gigmoto tour itinerary together with the Nahulugan Falls.

    I haven’t been to Catanduanes and this is so perfect. I love the scenery from the higher elevation while enjoying the sea breeze. The green fields that is close to the seacoast is really stunning. I will surely bookmark this for future reference. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Amazing photos as well!

      Oh my thank you! Which attraction are you referring to btw? Most attractions have local guides at the location, you’ll be assigned one after registration. None the less, you can always check the provicial DOT’s office or Facebook page for proper guidance. 🙂
