BAG-ING ISLAND - EPISODE 3


This is my third post for my Caramoan island hopping adventure series.  Click on the links within this post to read on the previous episodes.

If Manlawi Island's striking feature is its gorgeous sandbar and long stretch of shallow waters perfect for running and playing on the beach, Bag-Ing Island, on the other hand, evokes a wilder side of Caramoan owing to the exotic rock formation and greens found in Bag-Ing.


It's the same "wild" reason why Caramoan Islands has been Survivor international franchises' favorite location shoot.  It gives contestants the outcast feeling and detachment from the modern world which then draws out contestants' primal instincts, which is what exactly the reality game's theme is about.


It was already late in the afternoon when the Survivor wannabees got to Bag-Ing, and the water had already started to rise.  In Manlawi, we had the liberty to walk and run a far distance from the seashore and the water level remained knee to waist deep, however, that is not the case with Bag-Ing.  We were only able to swim close to the shore due to rising tides.

I will post more pictures on the next episode to show what fun things the Survivor wannabes did in Bag-ing.  Until then!
