Anawangin Island and its raw beauty

Anawangin may not be the last frontier like Palawan but this island is truly amazing. The mountains that meet the sea, the trees, sunset, white sand and blue waters of the beach each contribute to the awesomeness of the place. Since there are no hotels and establishments around, no electricity and no cell signal, the feel of nature and it’s raw beauty can really be felt.

Anawangin island is about 4-5 hours away from Manila. This includes the bus ride, tricycle ride and a boat ride to the island itself. The experience of camping for the first time, seeing the sky full of stars at night, seeing a shooting star and a firefly are all memories that will never be forgotten.
