Barobo, Surigao del Sur, Philippines
  • I think not even Boracay island can come close to this one

    • by coolynch78


      I have never seen an island as beautiful as this one. I think not even Boracay island can come close to this one. It is about a 10 minute boat ride from the municipality of Barobo, Surigao del Sur, Philippines. Barobo, Surigao del Sur in turn is about 2 hours from Butuan City, Agusan del Norte which has the nearest airport.

      Cabgan Island is about a few hectares wide with only 2-3 families living in it.

      It has white powder-fine sandy beaches along its coastline. The water is so clear and with the deeper parts so blue. The life underneath its waters is also quite diverse and colorful. The island itself is almost untouched. And it is not even developed to accommodate visitors thus once you set foot on this island you will have a feeling of being in a paradise all by yourself. The place is really breathtaking!

      • And since Barobo is a place where you can find the finest of sea foods, most people who visit Cabgan Island, find it tempting to prepare their own seafood menu the “boyscout way”!

        And if you really like to go island hopping, you won’t really be a bit disapppointed because Cabgan Island has neighboring islands, the most famous of which is the Turtle island, named as such because of its beautiful turtle-like shape. Cabgan Island

        has another neighboring island which is all white-sand and appears only when water level becomes very low.

        The only problem I saw is that the governemnt in this area, I think, is not taking any steps to preserve this beautiful island. I think they should be a little more strict in implementing policies about garbage disposal in this island. I guess if they will not start preserving this island now, its beauty will be gone within ten years or so.
