Catanduanes or otherwise referred to as the “Happy Island” boasts of a stunning landscape comprising of rolling hills, hidden lagoons, waterfalls, secluded beaches, natural pools and spectacular rock formations. A lot less crowded compared to Siargao, Catanduanes can easily be circled riding a motorcycle and there are a lot of places to chill and relax. But for surfers, the beach of Puraran serves as an ideal escape location from the bustling big city, as the waves here coming from the Pacific Ocean produces a consistent supply of swells during the surfing season. Each year, a surfing completion is held here and participated at by some of the country’s best surfers.
