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 by just 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.

Being an acrophobic, I was probably contemplating at this moment, if should continue and why did I even go here. 😂

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.
