It took us around 45 minutes from the little Mount Caglago port to reach the heavenly site of paradise of Cotivas. Because of its remoteness, the island is too peaceful and quiet. I went to a lot of islands and beaches, but Cotivas offers something different. I wanted to be a castaway after experiencing this peace of heaven.

We got the entire day to do cartwheels and jump shots! Bear with us! Jayrold Anthony Galaraga got the better shots.

PANTAWID UHAW. We encountered two boatmen that day, one selling fish for our meal and this guy selling his freshly picked coconuts.

THE CHEF. While we were busy roaming around the island, swimming, doing cartwheels and documenting our jump shots, our boatman was diligently preparing our food.
