Palaui in 21 Instagrams
I was recently invited to join a media trip to the North of the Philippines to discover what the Provinces of Nueva Ecija and Cagayan and the Island of Palaui have to offer visitors to the region. I was very much surprised by what i discovered.
I have sifted through my fellow bloggers Instagram photos and have a series of three posts lined up for you. The first set of 21 Instagrams shows the beauty of Palaui Island.
Palaui is an island just off the north coast of Luzon. It has been able to remain rough and rugged due to its isolated position and the difficult and arduos journey to reach the island.
I hope these photos inspire you to take the trip North this summer and discover for yourself the beauty of Palaui and North Luzon
View from the Cape Engano Spanish built lighthouse over to Dos Hermanos Island where Black Seaweed ( Gamets) is farmed. Gamets provide local fishermen with an alternative income stream during the rainy season. #nlextravel #lakbaynorte #lakbaynorte6 #northboundph #northluzon #Cagayan #doshermanosisland #philippines #victoryliner #travelph #capeengano #palauilighthouse #Palaui
Set atop a grassy knoll between rugged beach coves along the northern coastline of #Palaui Island in Santa Ana, #Cagayan, Cape Engaño Lighthouse (Faro de Cabo Engaño), built in 1892, is one of the most dramatic lighthouses in the #Philippines. ? ?: @markyramonego #LakbayNorte6 #LakbayNorte #NLEXLakbayNorte #NLEXTravel #NorthBoundPH #VictoryLiner #Travel #lighthouse #CagayanProvince #PalauiIsland

DANCING SOULS ON THE WINGS OF FOREVER. We climbed dazzling heights of PALAUI ISLAND, Cagayan to reach the Cape Engaño Lighthouse together. On our journey to reach the top, I found my self hearing nothing else but my heart beat & my soul breathing. And again I found my life as my spirit soared to touch the sky with the good souls from #LakbayNorte6. #NLEXTravel #NLEXLakbayNorte #NorthBoundPH . @northboundmagazine @nlextravel
Palaui Island. We only climbed up to the lighthouse but i can see that there are more excellent hiking routes around those rolling hills with scenic views each way you turn. This would be an excellent island for pre-nup photos too. Why not come and try it ?? #nlextravel #palaui #victoryliner #lakbaynorte #lakbaynorte6 #northboundph #northluzon #explorethenorthph #philippines
Will absolutely go back and try glamping here at Anguib Beach. ❤⛺️ . . . #cagayan #palaui #island #LakbayNorte6 #northtravelph #victoryliner #travel #nlextravel #survivor
The irrepressible and fun @sisasaid at the ruins of Cape Engaño Lighthouse in Palaui Island. #LakbayNorte6 #NLEXLakbayNorte #NLEXTravel #VictoryLiner #NorthBoundPH
Cape Engano Lighthouse on Palaui Island was built by the Spanish in 1893. From here there are views over the island and South China Sea. The short climb up from the beach is quite easy with concrete stairs till halfway, but once you reach the top theres a 360 panoramic view to reward you. Palaui Island is about an hours boatride from Sta.Ana in Cagayan. . #nlextravel #lakbaynorte #lakbaynorte6 #victoryliner #travelph #Palaui #Cagayan #northluzon #northboundph #Philippines #lighthouse #palauilighthouse
The 1.8km long Anguib Beach just east of San Vincent is one of the best places in Cagayan to spend a summers day. The white sand beach and clear blue waters of this J-shaped beach is the ideal place to have fun with friends and family. #nlextravel #northboundph #northluzon #lakbaynorte6 #lakbaynorte #victoryliner #travelph #anguibbeach #Cagayan #philippines
