Discovering the Pristine Waters in Catanduanes

It lies on the easternmost edge of Luzon. Catanduanes is located off the coast of the Bicol Region in the southern part of Luzon and faces the Pacific Ocean. Due to its location, the province is usually the first place in the country to get battered by typhoons. Hence, it is known as the “Land of the Howling Winds.”

But after all the devastating catastrophes that visited the island, Catanduanes remains majestic and magnificent.

Sometimes all we need is a good place to rest after a week of stress in life. Going on a new adventure and discovering new places is the thrilling part of traveling. So, why not try Catanduanes? They have a lot to offer that is to your heart’s content.
