a 15 minute boat ride off the coast of Sagñay then just Be Yourself!! Feb 27, 2009
This island could easily be spotted at the Sagñay beach and is one of the hidden and most secluded yet accessible island getaways in Camarines Sur that most tourists who flock the province haven't heard yet. It has an ivory white beach contrasting the usual gray brown coastline of Sagñay in the mainland.

It is easy to have the island for yourself since visitors are few and seasonal except for the locals. That means you could almost do whatever you want.

Venturing to this area is a bit tricky. From the Naga City Terminal you could ride a jeepney to Sagñay. Personally ask the driver to drop you off to the street where you'll get another ride to Nato port.(Estimated time of travel: less than an hour) Once you get to the laid back port you could ask the local fisher folks who could provide you transportation for a mere 15 minute boat ride (even less depends on the water). Last February 2009 we paid around 1500 pesos or $30 to hire a boat. There are no resorts, restaurants or electricity in the island, only small huts good enough for dinning or plain relaxing. We brought some food and most essential of all, drinkable water. We rented a hut for an afternoon for less than 500 pesos or $10 or if you want to stay for the night that would be around 700 pesos or $14 which includes a gas lamp and fresh water supply. However, though I was in high spirit that we could survive spending the night in a dark secluded island, we opted not to take any chances. As the sun sets we head back to the mainland to where security and comfort is guaranteed...
