Two hours and 30 minutes away from the port of Daet, Camarines Norte awaits an island of paradise. Calaguas Island is one of the tourist spots that Daet is proud of.
Sugary fine sand, breezy atmosphere and the feeling of being close to nature is what makes Calaguas island interesting. Relax and let your stress be away as you dive in the clear water or build a sand castle with your friend.
If you’re a bit adventurous you can go hiking at the peak of the mountain and take a glimpse of the whole island and its white sand.
Calaguas Island is comparable to Boracay in terms of sand texture and ocean water but with fewer tourists, less stalls and infrastructure.
Unlike many tourist island destinations, Calaguas is not much of a developed tourist destination making it more suiting for those who want to be out of the city life. You can bring your own musical instrument like guitar and beat box and play some music along the shore while drinking your favorite drinks.
Touring along the shore there are at most five resorts available that suits according to your budget and having their own services to offer and if you have some volleyball or Frisbee disk you can play on the shore. You can also take a selphy photo on the stones with a perfect background of the island. You can also be up in the mountain with your friends for some adventure and take a picture of a panoramic view.

- Boat transportation
- Food (breakfast, lunch dinner)
Unlimited fresh water maybe charged of 10 Pesos, if necessary.
