Sometimes we say – place in the postcards look much nicer than in reality, but this time is opposite – reality is much nicer than any pictures…
And sometimes you can get a perfect shot! 🙂 Even you are surrounded with so many tourists, swinging with selfie sticks 😉
How interesting to see the same place , changing every hour, perhaps more accurately, every minute . When we arrived at the island Kalanggaman about eleven o’clock in the morning , it seemed a little gloomy and gray . Went for a swim and color began to change…
But this time I’m not about colors . About the tiny island KALANGGAMAN, that stands out from the other islands in that it has a charming sand bar . Maybe, that we haven’t seen anything like this before, this place has left us impressed . The hit had dealt with the beach through porą- three hours , it narrowed to a thin strip. And in the place where you arrive fotografavomės , in the afternoon the same sand already bathed the waves.
Bet šįkart aš ne apie spalvas. O apie mažytę KALANGGAMAN salą, kuri išsiskiria iš kitų salų tuo, kad turi žavingą sand bar( lietuviškai, tikriausiai, verstųsi- sekluma).
Gal dėlto, kad mes nieko panašaus anksčiau nesam matę, ši vieta paliko mums didelį įspūdį.
Iš gan platoko paplūdimio per porą- trejetą valandų, jis susiaurėjo į ploną ruožą. Ir toje vietoje, kur tik atvykę, fotografavomės, popiet tą patį smėlį jau skalavo bangos.
A lot of companies organize day tours, to this paradise, from all surrounding islands. And we got here from Malapascua island for one day – two hour ride to the paradise and back. If you want to stay, you need to bring your own tent ( no hotels on the island). So we said, if we’ll be back , deffinetely will stay overnight. You need to feel and see the island early in the morning , before all tourists arrive, and later afternoon, once they leave.
If you’ll have a chance to visit Cebu or Leyte islands in Philippines, we recomend to come to stay on this lovely island , even for a short afternoon! The typhoon Yolanda hit this island in 2013 – it used to be two sand bars, now only one left. Who knows, how this place will change in couple years…
