Cagayan: Anguib Beach

Located in the northeastern part of Brgy. San Vicente in Santa Ana in the province of Cagayan, Anguib Beach has a long stretch of fine white to creamy sand kissed by pristine blue waters.

Anguib Beach is one of the hidden gems of North Luzon. It is probably the northeasternmost beach in the island of Luzon. In fact my group had to brave ferocious waves in order for us to reach the beach. However, there is a much safer route for those who easily get sea sick. You can rent a tricycle or drive directly from Sta. Ana to Anguib Beach. The main difference is the travel time. If you take the boat you'll probably have an hour of travel time compared to the more than an hour's worth of travel time by land.
beautiful, clean, and isolated
Upon reaching the beach you can choose between the P100 or P30 beach area. The P100 part of the beach has a panoramic view and is basically a beach lover's paradise. The P30 part however, has a shallow, rocky and sometimes foamy beach. The good part about the P30 area is that it is just a few meters away from the P100 area and you could stay there without extra fees.

Preparing to leave the island
Currently, Anguib Beach is being developed by the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority in cooperation with the Local Government of the town of Santa Ana, Cagayan.
The group
My visit to Anguib Beach is part of the Palaui Island tour. During my visit , I could simply say that I enjoyed the exclusivity of the beach. I said exclusivity because you could count the number of people around. What I didn't enjoy however, is the bombardment of fees. To sum it up, we were asked to pay P300 for a guide to Cape Engaño Lighthouse, another P300 for a guide (environmental fee) to snorkel in Punta Verde. Then another P30 or P100 environmental fee/ entrance fee for Anguib Beach, not to mention the extra P100 if we wanted to rent a hut. 
Overall, despite the numerous fees, Anguib Beach is a must see/ visit place worthy of anyone's bucket list. 

Getting there:

From Manila, ride a bus heading to Sta. Ana, Cagayan. From there you can rent a tricycle to bring you to Anguib Beach. Another option is to ride a tricycle to San Vicente Port. From there you can ride a boat to Anguib Beach.
