Ten facts I love about Kalamansig, ang Bayang Pinagpala!

Okay, I’m no different than most of you, but I’m no average bum either. For an orthopedic surgeon, blogger, photographer, hiker, son of a beach, Kalamansig struck the rugged, outdoor rascal in me. Many who have not been to Kalamansig asked me “why”. In phrases and images, here’s some of Kalamansig’s finest to answer the “why”:

Kalamansig is surely a "bayang pinagpala" with the many adventures you can do there!

  • Sunsets are perfect anywhere in coastal Kalamansig. Who doesn’t love sunsets?

PORT SUNSET

    • Mornings are as calm as sleepy. The sun is not “visible” till only about 9 AM so you can swim all you can before you get sunburned!

TAYANDAC SUNRISE

  • Kalamansig’s island beaches are sublimely pristine, rugged, “uncivilized”- exactly the son of a beach’s kind of beach

  • Coral reefs, corals, reefs, coral reefs. Kalamansig’s coast is dotted by the shallowest, clearest and alive reefs I’ve seen yet! You can actually take a picture above water of the reefs below!
  • Lobsters can be this big. Ulang as they call this, is a deep sea creature so the people in Kalamansig told me its not very often seen on their daily menu. Oh boy, I just saw one my entire life!And this was it!

    • Fern or “Pako” grow in the wild. So fresh fern salad (which cost a hefty amount in some resto) is a delicacy.
