I loved Cabugao and Bantigue Island! If you are visiting during Habagat season, chances are, you won’t be able to go to Tangke lagoon so better spend more time in Cabugao and Bantigue island.

This nature reserve has a sandbar that changes with the tide and the season. It is really amazing and it is what is pictured in postcards. The kind of island you would have in mind when you want to unplugged and spend a few hours.
