Explore Cagayan: Palaui Island Marine Reserve

CagayanLet’s go to Palaui by Caroline Cruz

Palaui was declared a marine reserve (Category: Protected landscape and seascape) in 1994. A volcanic island, it has a diverse ecosystem of coralline beaches, mangroves, cliffs, springs, waterfalls, rainforest, and endemic flora and fauna. Of which, some species are yet to be named.

Palaui island’s extensive coral reef is perfect for snorkeling and diving. The island is also a perfect site for fishing, hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities.

Visit Cape Engaño lighthouse to get an excellent view of the island and its surrounding area. This 118-year-old lighthouse is made out of volcanic bricks and it has a fortress-like design.

How to get there:
From Sta Ana, Cagayan bus terminal, take a quadcycle to San Vicente Port. Boats in this port can take you to any part of Palaui Island.

Tip: Bring extra battery when visiting since there is no electricity in the island. Cellular network service is only available on the eastern side of the island.
