The Polvoron Beaches of Cagraray Island
My first ocular inspection of a client's property has been fascinating. It was a nice, seaside lot facing a beach unique from all others I've been to.
Before my short sojourn, all I thought was that it's going to be an ordinary white-sand beach. After all, that's what my client told me so. It wasn't anything like that at all, however.
Our tour guide asked me if the place is comparable to Boracay. I bluntly said, "no, but I don't want white-sand beaches anymore as I've been to so many before. This is something else, this is something more special."
If you think there can only be five or so colors of beaches there are in the world, Cagraray Island will prove you wrong. Barangay Mataas, on its southern part, will surprise you by colors you never would expect.
Cagraray is an island located on the eastern part of Albay Province. It is connected to the mainland through a bridge that spans across Sula Channel.
However, during the voyage, our destination could only be accessed by boats from Sula Port because a typhoon caused landslides blocking the way to Barangay Mataas.
While many people would consider this a tribulation, it actually made our trip even more interesting. A boat ride from Sula Port means that we will see the sights of Sula Channel as well...
