Sta Ana, Cagayan

Last year, when Neo first visited his Papa’s province, we were given a tour at Sta Ana Cagayan to explore the beaches.  This is the northern tip you will see in the map (Batanes not included hehe). 


From city proper at Tuguegarao, with smooth roads (per 2013 Senatoriable Jack Enrile, he made sure that the farm to market roads were good), it took us 4 straight hours (van running at 60-80kph) to arrive at Sta Ana, Cagayan.  The nice palayans made the journey bearable.  We stayed at Avalon Beach Club.  The rooms were so nice (this is a newly built resort during that time, 2012).  But don’t expect too much on the beach as it is not a white sand beach.


We stayed there overnight.  Cost of two rooms (one sea-view) at around Php6000.  The room can accommodate 4-5 people.  It is very spacious – with LCD TV, split-type air-conditioning, mini-ref, and its own toilet and bath.  Aside from the king size bed, the room also has a sofa-bed (I don’t know what is called if it’s made of wood, sorry).




After that, we tried to go to the famed “Boracay of the North” – the Anguib Beach, but we weren’t able to go there as the roads were blocked by some construction.  Instead we went to Nangaramoan Beach – and this looks nice as well.  The sand is not smooth, but it looks so pristine.   


Being a beach lover, we can’t resist having Neo try dipping on the beach – of course, with umbrella (it was noontime, when we arrived there). 


Take note, there are no overnight accommodations in here.  You have to go home by afternoon :)

Ciao!
