Alarms all set and a hope for a bright day tomorrow during our Palaui island tour, we all slept tight with excitement and anticipation the night before we were bound to go to Anguib Beach.

As part of our Palaui island tour, we included Anguib Beach in our second-day itinerary. We woke up at 5:00 am and got ready, ate breakfast and waited for our boatman to come at 6:00 am.

For around 30 minutes, we sailed across the sea until we were finally in Anguib Beach. From afar, the sand looked light cream in color.

Anguib Beach: Cagayan’s Boracay of the North

Upon reaching the beach, we were told to register and pay the entrance fee. Once that was done and over with, we started exploring the beach.

Yes, there are trees and cottages just a few meters from the beach so you don’t have to worry about shade.

There were signs all over the place indicating that Anguib Beach is the Boracay of the North. I’ve never been to Boracay but Anguib Beach’s sand wasn’t really white. It’s more like cream in color. Although, when the sand dries and the sun is high up in the sky, the sand almost looks white.

The sand on the beach has some fine ones and grainy ones like this.

Due to the rainy season and probably the wind, there were a lot of seaweeds scattered all over the sand. However, the water was clear and clean. There were a lot of kids in the area since the waters weren’t too deep. Works great with me.

Birds

On one end of the beach, I noticed there weren’t any people going there. Curious, I went exploring and found out, it was a private area. There were trees just a few meters away from the beach with a lot of birds flying from tree to tree. I saw yellow colored birds and the sound of their tweets was the highlight of my time at Anguib Beach.

Behind me is where I saw the yellow-colored birds. Had a hard time taking photos of them, though.

Small Cove

Just a little further, we found a small cove but the nearby waters had a lot of seaweeds so maybe that’s why nobody went there or that it’s private property. Anyway, by the end of the beach, the locals said you can find a set of stairs to take you to the other side of the cove to Nangaramoan.

Responsible Travel Tips

When traveling to one place, make sure you practice responsible tourism. Here are some tips to do so.

1. Respect the environment

Don’t litter. Please hold onto your trash until you find a garbage can. Don’t bring home the sand or any seashell. Leave them where they belong. Missing seashells can have potential detrimental environmental impacts.

2. Avoid single-use plastic

Bring your eco bag and refuse single-use plastic.

3. Shop local

Keep the traditional crafts alive and support local artisans. Buy from them. And try not to haggle, P20 may seem small to you but it can mean a lot to them.

4. Always ask permission

Be sure to ask for permission first when taking photos or videos especially when it comes to children
