CAGBALETE ISLAND - Mauban, Quezon


Cagbalete Island is accessible from Mauban port via a 45-minute boat ride either by a public or a private boat.  There are two daily trips for the public transport, one at 10am and the other 4pm.  The private transport however is available anytime of the day.  The advantage of the latter is that you can disembark at your preferred resort while for the former you have to trek from the sabang to your preferred resort.

Cagbalete is known for its crystal clear water and its “kilometer” wide shore line during low tide.  This event commonly happens twice a day.  So for swimming-bums, it is highly advised to coordinate with the locals or the resort owner the high and low tide cycles to properly plan the timing of your visit.  



The facilities of the island is somehow median -- no crowded set-up of Boracay and Puerto Galera but not undeveloped or underdeveloped in the likes of Anawangin Cove and Potipot Island.  Resorts accommodate campers but with an entrance and camping fee for access to common/shared facilities.  The island is rich of sea foods like crabs, octopus, squid, fish, etc... just inquire with your resort if you like some.
