Information about Anguib Beach
Anguib Beach is a long stretch of beach located in Sta. Ana, Cagayan and dubbed as the Boracay of the North. It is amongst the most beautiful beaches in the northeastern part of the Philippines because of its similarity to Bocaray. It has powdery white sand, pristine blue water, and lush green foliage with mountain ranges.
The beach is still a developing tourist attraction. Although there are accommodations and a few commercial buildings already established in the area, there is still no electricity and food stalls here, so visitors need to bring essentials. Anguib Beach is also less frequently crowded and is yet to be discovered by travelers.
The site was once accessible by land through trekking through the hills. Unfortunately, that area has been restricted to the public as it is now privately owned. The locals used to call the site as an island because it can only be reached by boat until Cagayan Export Zone Authority (CEZA) started to make developments around the area including a road that will connect the coast to Sta. Ana.
What to See and Do
The waves at Anguib Beach is usually very gentle and shallow, ideal for swimming for visitors of all ages including kids. Its surrounding water is also home to a thriving marine life. A variety of fish, shells, corals, and other invertebrates can be seen below the surface, and snorkeling and diving are highly encouraged. Snorkeling gears can be rented on the spot as well as kayaks and boats for island hopping and kayaking.
Visitors are also allowed to stay for the night as there are glamping tents available for rent. These tents are spacious and classy, much like a city hotel room. Although bonfires are not allowed on the beach as it may damage the fine white sand, guests are free to stargaze instead.
