Sits at the north of Luzon in brgy San Vicente, Sta Ana Cagayan Province. Because of the remoteness of this beautiful island, it is rarely visited by tourist. So it’s really not that crowded even in peak season. Even though it’s small, this island has a lot to offer. From white beaches, trail to a historic lighthouse, falls and many more. It is also a good site for snorkeling with it’s undisturbed corals around the island. In fact, it was declared as a National Marine Reserve in August 28, 1994. It was also used as a filming location for Survivor: Blood vs. Water and Survivor: Cagayan.
