Calamianes: Cagbatan Island


Cagbatan Island in the Calamianes, also known as Coron Youth Club (CYC)---is a tiny uninhabited island ideal for swimming, snorkeling and camping.  Diving beginners also train here.


The optimist lives on the peninsula of infinite possibilities; the pessimist is stranded on the island of perpetual indecision. ~ William Arthur Ward

So serene and beautiful...looks like it is really isolated. In your first shot the driftwood - or whatever it is - looks like the gentle water giant stepping out of the water. It is such a wonderful shot. The others are lovely, too. I like the trees. They add the perfect touch to the landscapes. genie
