Caramoan: Bikal Port [Watery & Outdoor Wednesday]




From Guijalo port, we took a tricycle (a motorcycle mounted with a sidecar) to Bikal port to meet our boatman.  The ride took us across Caramoan town---we passed by the municipal hall, the market and center of town that locals call Centro.   Bikal port is the starting point going to the islets of the Caramoan peninsula.  Bancas (outrigger boats)  docked by the pier  waiting for passengers, and mangrove forest thrives at the port's surrounding areas.  I would have wanted to take more photos but it was getting dark as we hurried to board our banca for Tabgon.

I think it's a very nice shot. It's good that the mountains aren't denuded yet.

You got me envious, I really wanted to go to Caramoan last summer but time didn't permit me.

Btw Bantay Abot Cave is located in Balaoi, Ilocos Norte, town next to Pagudpud and where the famous Blue Lagoon is located.
