Apayao - Cagayan last part; Trekking in Palaui Island

Holy Week 2016 Road Trip to Northernmost Mainland of the Philippines
March 23 to 27, 2016
Note: This get-away was supposedly a Babuyan Islands triangle tour from Calayan Island, Babuyan Island to Camiguin Norte. Due to strong wind and continuous rains, it was not advisable to pursue the original route. The group organizer decided to take the Apayao and Palaui Island as alternative plan for this road trip. The fixed amount of PhP8,000 (Mar23-28) from the original trip became PhP4,800 (Mar23-27) excluding food trips.

Palaui Island lies off the northwestern part of a large promontory in San Vicente, in the municipality of Santa Ana, Cagayan province. The Dos Hermanos rocky islets lie off Cape Engaño, in the northern point of Palaui, and there are some rocks off the northeast point of the island. The northern point of the island is called Cape Engaño where on the summit of the hill lie the ruins of Cape Engaño Lighthouse. A trail and a 229-step concrete stairway from the cove leads the travelers to the lighthouse. The Port of San Vicente in Santa Ana, Cagayan, situated between Palaui Island and the coast of Luzon, is the jump-off point for crossing the channel to Punta Verde (Point Verde) on Palaui Island, or heading to Engaño Cove, a little further to the north. The hike from Punta Verde, the southeast tip of Palaui, to Cape Engaño takes about 3.5 to 4 hours of hike through beautiful verdant scenery.

In 2013, it was used as the filming location for Survivor: Blood vs. Water and Survivor: Cagayan. On May 2013, Palaui Island earned the 10th spot in the CNN's World's 100 Best Beaches list, with CNN praising its "raw beauty."
