Kwebang Lampas @ Pagbilao, Quezon

Kwebang Lampas translated to English literally means a cave that overshoot its mark. I just don't know how this cave got its name but I think that this cave is situated perfectly on where it is. Located at the right side of the Puting Buhangin Beach Cove in Pagbilao, Quezon, this cave is accessible via a leisurely swim from the beach shore or a short trek amidst rocks and stones on the cove's jagged corners.

The entrance to this cave is about shoulder deep but once you are halfway inside, it becomes shallow because of the rock formations inside the cave that you can step-on to. There is also an exit on the opposite side where you can have a view of the left side of the cove and also the sea beyond. Because of the two-way entry/exit, this can also be considered as a tunnel. This cave should not be missed by travelers to this beautiful place.

Here are some of the photos I have taken while exploring the cave:

Since this will be my last post on the Cagbalete-Pagbilao series, allow me to thank my very good company on this trip Dong Ho, Kit and Manny (collectively known as Comboboyz) as well as the nine other travelers whom we met at Cagbalete and whom we joined in Pagbilao lead by Pat and Adolf. Thanks also to Vicky for the photos of the group that she e-mailed me. Hope to see you guys again in the future.

This Cagbalete-Pagbilao trip is truly a memorable experience and I strongly recommend this to all nature-loving back-packers out there. I will be out of the country starting tomorrow to meet Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy and will return on Saturday with lots of stories. Take Care Everyone!!!

  5. I like that this cave has an entry and exit point. You're right, it's more like a tunnel.

    The fact that it is by the sea makes it a must-see. I hope to go there one of these days. =)
