Rest and Relax at the Caramoan Getaway
If you’re looking for some fun under the sun, Caramoan is simply the best place just for that experience! You can experience the summer breeze all year round and get a tan on its beautiful seashore. You can also go snorkeling and island hopping from one beach to another.
The best sites where you can catch great photos are the Manlawi Sandbar, Guinahoan Island, Lahus Island and Matakud Island where you can see the “enchanted” milkfish locals talk about.
Visit Mt. Isarog National Park
You can trek all your worries away and you’ll feel lighter (figuratively and literally) at Mount Isarog, a potentially active volcano. Its highest point is about 6,600 feet (2,011 m).
Historically, it’s a spot where the troops of the Philippine Army and Bicolano guerrillas took refuge when the Japanese conquered the country. Nowadays, it’s a national park, home to waterfalls, springs and nature.
The best time to visit the place is between January to April. By this time, the mountain’s forest is cold and refreshing even if it’s hot elsewhere.
Go Wild at the Pinacuason Hot Spring Resort and Adventure Park
Bliss is within reach at the Pinacuason Hot Spring Resort and Adventure Park. Families from all over come to enjoy having picnics by the pools and other water activities.
However, solo travelers can try out the bike zipline – an ultimate adventure to experience. You get to pedal a modified bike on a cable-wire that’s suspended about 100 feet above the ground.
Feel Refreshed at Malabsay Falls
Hidden at the foot of Mt. Isarog is Malabsay Falls — one of Mother Nature’s best hidden secrets. To reach the falls, you would need to trek for about 15 minutes first. It’s a fairly easy route and an enjoyable one due to seeing nature up close and personal. The experience helps anyone forget that they are trekking in the first place.
So, if you want to feel refreshed, you can visit Malabsay Falls. You can take a jeepney ride from Naga to the terminal in Panicusan, and then walk straight to Mt. Isarog National Park’s entrance.
So, there you have it, these are just some of the Philippine tourist attractions you should consider visiting when you’re in Naga City. Just remember that there are other possible sightseeing spots besides these. You just have to take the time to explore the
