Agoho trees and the beach at Apuao Grande Island
Around 30 minutes upon departing the port of Mercedes, we were greeted with this beauty. I mean, come on, how can you not fall in-love with this place? It was, for me, a taste of paradise at the Apuao Islands waiting for the world to discover.
Arriving with such gorgeous view
Apuao Islands - Grande and Pequeña, are two of the seven group of islands in the municipality of Mercedes, Camarines Norte. The rest are as follows: Canimog (Crocodile) Island, Canton "The Rock" Island, Caringo Island, Quinapaguian Island, and Malasugui Island. Will surely be back to explore the rest! Stay tuned for more photos of Apuao Islands on my next posts.
