Carabao Island Boat Tour

This series started with a boat tour and will end in a two-part boat tour around Carabao Island. And to show you how fast the weather changed on that particular day, I will first show you shots I have taken on a bit gloomy or gray skies. Again, these are all taken while on our boat where the ride was a bit bumpy because of the waves. Hope you enjoy them.


Lovely Landscape on a Gloomy Sky



Short-Spanned Beach Shores Abound the Island



Can You Spot Images on these Rocks?



The Waves Started to Get Bigger



Lush Greens On Top



Rocks and Beaches made this a Paradise

  10. this is a nice warm place. i like all the blue and green! anyway, i went to our beach yesterday and i thought of you. kelan ka pupunta dito? LOL. kaso it's not a five star resort, simple lang mahirap lang kami eh LOL unlike the ones you go too. but our sunset is great plus you can stay for free and look around bataan diba LOL that is not half bad at all.

  11. love the cliffs and the water...always a beautiful combination. i'd prefer this island to remain unspoiled...do we really need another boracay???

  13. Another lovely island. Lots of greenery and the cliffs all looked so lovely. It reminds me of my boat trip in Phuket. This is just as beautiful as Phuket.

  14. @ prinsesamusang - wow. where can i contact you? i am sure lots of bloggers would love to go there. cge schedule natin.

  15. @ luna miranda - i agree. boracay is a benchmark that any beach would like to emulate. there will only be one boracay as there will only be one pagudpud or galera or cagbalete. carabao island will definitely have its own charm.

  28. It's a nice place indeed. If only there were blue skies and cotton-white clouds to compliment your landscape photos. They're well-captured, nevertheless...
    In the fourth photo, the rock looks like a bungo (skull) is naturally carved out there...
    I wish I can have this kind of adventure too...

  34. @ rafter - from what i have gatherd, there are lots of water buffaloes in the area before that is why the mammal was associated with the place.
