About Calaguas Island
is actually a group of Islands consisting of around more than 20 Islands and islets. The two major islands are the Tinaga and Guintinua where the 3 barangays named Banocboc, Pinagtigasan and Mangcawayan are located.
Mahabang Buhangin Beach or Halabang Baybay in Bicol (long beach) is an attractive beach located on the northern part of Barangay Mangcawayan (Tinaga Island). A long beach with fine white sand, crystal blue water, scattered volcanic rock on both ends and valued for its untouched beauty and preserved nature. The entire beach is facing northwest, best for an inspiring sunset, and it is an image of wonderful paradise with its long stretch sand with crystal clear water perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
Presently, there are no commercial establishments in the island, no electricity, no mobile and internet network making it best place to relax and unwind by sitting on the sand, swimming and exploring the island, bonding with friends during a bonfire night, and surely the place will be appreciated.
