First, there is the dramatic lighthouse on Canimog Island which is considered to be the oldest in the entire Bicol Region.
Canimog Island also boasts of coral gardens, rich and teeming with huge and healthy coral growth and marine fauna.
Contrary to what a popular guide book was saying, we actually found the capital town quite charming (save for the thousands of tricycles – Daet has gained the notoriety of having the most number of tricycles in the country).It was believed that the foundation was made of mortars and boulders from the Old Spanish Jail where many Filipino patriots died, further magnifying its historical and cultural significance. Aside from monuments, Camarines Norte folks are quite proud of their Provincial Capitol whose 12 columns represent the 12 towns of the province.Whilst in the Provincial Complex, don’t miss the Museo Bulawan which provides a window into the province’s rich history and culture.Next to the island of Canimog are the stunning islands of Apuao Pequeña and Apuao Grande (the two islands are connected by a white sand bar and you can actually walk between the two islands during low tide) whose long stretches of white sand beaches lined with pine-like agoho trees similar to the overrated Anawangin Cove in Zambales (only a million times better – cleaner, significantly less people, and definitely has a white sand beach).Apuao Grande used to be the home of once a high-end resort which fell into disrepair.
Just on the San Miguel Bay and about 20-30 minutes (via Bagasbas) and 30-45 minutes (via Mercedes town) by motorboat are the gorgeous Mercedes Group of Islands.
