I just want to travel and experience what the world can offer and they say that weekend should be spent on happy memories.
Who would have thought that a change in plans because of typhoon Jolina could give us something better in exchange of what we expect to have.
It was raining for two days since we arrived at Camarines Norte and since there’s a no sailing policy issued by the coast guard, we spend our days doing city tours.
On the third day, the sun shines and gave us a glimpse of one of the virgin island in Jose Panganiban. After an hour travelling from Daet, we arrived at the municipality hall of Jose Panganiban where a boat awaits us.
Travelling for an hour from the Larap port, we arrived at Parola Island.
Who would have thought that there is a pink beach here in the Philippines, particularly in Jose Panganiban Camarines Norte?
You should take everything you need with you from the port like water, food , tent, mosquito repelant and even medicine just in case of emergency.
Spending an overnight is highly recommended especially if you really want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Spend the night and gaze the stars at night
I recommend Parola Island for someone who likes me want to spend a day or two of relaxation. The water is not deep; I actually lie down in the pristine water and just enjoy the sun touching my face. There are two shoreline to enjoy. You can choose to go at the other side where the water in not too deep. You can also visit the Parola at the top and do some photos shoots. You can also view the majestic pink beach from the top. You can enjoy a lot of instagramable spots in the island
The rock formation, the trees, the water; they seems to bring out the best in you to pose for photos.
By the way, you can also enjoy some fishing; just make sure to bring some fishing line and you would surely enjoy your fishing experience.
I’m telling you this because I saw someone fishing without a fishing rod and yet she was able to catch some fish in no time.
