Kabatian Island - A Wavy Welcome

It was rather peaceful in Labrador when we depart on a boat but halfway on our trip, the sea became uneasy and rowdy that a supposed 30-minute boat ride turned into more than an hour of wavy ride. And when we arrived at Kabatian Island in Sual, Pangasinan, the waves have become bigger that the first thing on my comrades mind were "How do we go back?".

But then again... amazing places are most often not easy to go to and Kabatian Island is definitely no exception. Also referred to as Angel Island, Kabatian Island is located in Sual Pangasinan and is a word-of-mouth among the locals because of its amazing stone and rock formations. On a less windy days, its white shorelines are perfect place for beach-goers but even on windy days, the crevices and the coves formed by the stones and rocks provide a calm place for swimming and enjoying the day in the sun. Here are some shots I have taken of the place:


Strong Waves on the Shore



Fishnet



Stones, Sea and Greens



Jesus Painted on a Boat



Mighty Stones against the Waves



Winds and Blues

I would like to share this island to my friends at "My World". To have a virtual travel around the world's best places, please click here.

  13. ang ganda naman ng lugar, di maubos ubos ang parang paraisong pasyalan sa pinas ah.

    siguro maalon dahil tag ulan siguro mas maiging lumarga kapag tag init? tama ba?

  15. When the seas are rough and the waves threatening, the first thing that comes to mind while on a banca is wearing a life vest.
