If you have read or seen pictures of Islas Gigantes on the net, Cabugao Islands must have been the attached picture to it. It’s probably the most photographed spot in Islas Gigantes. On Google maps,
But it looks awesome on pictures too!
Cabugao Islands are actually two islets -“Gamay” or small and “Dako/Grande” or big. In this photo, the hill where I was standing is the “Gamay” and the island on my back (not shown), is Bantigue Island and further, the Cabugao Grande. (Thanks Allan Barredo for the correction)
Theres a small climb path going to Cabugao Gamay with staircase like rock ladders and rope lines. Sorry I have to do this photo op climbing bla said my guide although you wont spend a sweat climbing the hill. Unless, the sun is above you of course.
Below, the sand is even better.
I swear next time I go back here there shall be no repeat of this stupidity!.
