I have been to Calaguas twice, once in 2013 and once in 2016, and I must say that both times have been such an incredible experiences. It’s 2019, and I feel like going back. Back then, the islands were considered “virgin” since there were no major developments like accommodations or even electricity. Yes, they killed the lights at midnight, and it was just camping with tents.
I hear that it’s a bit different today. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but I hope that Calaguas doesn’t lose its beauty to capitalism and consumerism. There are things better left untouched.
I remember the powdery white sands, the turquoise-blue water, the golden sunset. I remember the simplicity and beauty of it all, especially because I spent it with some very special friends. Some people never visit a place twice because they want to try new places, but for me, the experience is always different.
I am looking forward to my third Calaguas adventure this summer.
