Cagbalete Island and Kamay ni Hesus Shrine, Quezon

First stop..Cagbalete Island located in Mauban, can get here by bus (JAC Liner or Lucena Liner) Manila to Lucena..then, from Lucena to Mauban by bus (NCR Bus Line) or van (SM Lucena and Pacific Mall)..if 10-15 persons would go, it would be cheaper to rent a van from Manila to Mauban and vice versa. Travel time is approximately 3-4 hours.

We stayed at Pansacola Beach Resort...For the rates including accommodation, food and boat transfers, please visit:

To get to Pansacola Beach Resort, meet up at Quezon cor. R. Pansacola Street, Brgy. Lual. Luckily, it was the owner, Mrs. Pansacola, who assisted us in our boat transfer from the port to the resort.

Boat ride takes about 45 mins. to get to the resort

Our accommodation..good for 20 persons..has two rooms (1st floor) but some opted to stay at the attic-like area. You'd be provided with sleeping mats and pillows. Make sure  to bring mosquito repellant lotion just to be sure.

There were a lot sea weeds in the shore when we went might as well enjoy racking it. 

Food package includes 3 meals and 2 snacks..all meals have meat, vegetable and seafood..dessert is fruit of the season or leche flan..In this island, you'd never get hungry..we even termed this trip as "Feeding Program".

Enjoy the refreshing buko...Pa-baak ng buko..hahahaha

What To Do? You can go around the island, enjoy the beach and take pictures creatively.

Time to leave the was low tide so we had to ride a small boat first to be transported to the bigger boat...nobody moved a know what will happen.

While waiting for the van to transport us back to scramble muna..:)

Sidetrip to Lucban, Quezon...Kamay ni Hesus Shrine..going up 300 steps is tiring..but its worth it when you get on top...stop by each stations of the cross.
