Crocodile Island: Cagayan North Series
Crocodile Island was called as such because it did look like a crocodile with its head above the water. The long island revealed a wide beach as well because it was low tide.
Crocodile Island was actually a rock that formed the reptile's head. We climbed the rock and savored the spectacular view of Sta. Ana and Palaui Island.
The island as I've been told is a popular picnic ground, because of its proximity to San Vicente port. The island was free of litter though, and only shattered corals piled up on the beach.
The island also had a rough terrain on one side. The rock was kind of soft though, so one should be careful when climbing.
We did our mandatory group photo to capture the memory of this trip. The sun was beginning to retire, so after that, we headed back to the resort.
We were dropped off at a jetty away from the resort. We used a makeshift suspension bridge to cross to the resort.
As soon as I hit the beach of the resort, I rushed to capture these wonderful images of the sunset. The sea was like glass, that reflected the hills and sky that was drenched in golden splendor.
I think I took around 30 minutes just taking pictures while the others were already preparing for dinner. This was the best way to end one of the most adventurous days of my travel year.
This ends my series on Sta. Ana and Palaui Island. It's really more of a speed tour, since we had to digest everything in one day. We vowed to come back, and explore more of the enchanting Palaui Island. We were told of more beaches and islands that had more adventures in store. This unplanned and spontaneous trip was definitely satisfying, and it opened our eyes to the beauty of isolated Cagayan North.
