Cabacungan is a small cove found in Cainan Point in the western coast of Pangasinan. The locals frequent the place because of a cave with emerald green pool inside (I wrote about my first visit to the cave here). Its a cove with a cave :).
Because it was low tide, we had to leave our bancas at the other side of the island (where I got my Nalasin photos). I did not know there was a trail from there and I love discovering something new about what I thought were familiar places.
The trail took us through an arid landscape that looked like it had been through a bush fire recently. It was not a long hike, we reached the cove after a few encounters with some thorny bushes. The last segment of the trail has not been used for sometime and we had to do a bit of clearing.
You will be able to see the entrance to the cave on the photo above. (Click to enlarge, the entrance is on the far end of the shore).
What made my visit a bit different this time was the discovery of a chasm just a few meters from shore. Tide was really low when we were about to leave the cove and the edge of the chasm showed.
Golden light was hitting the huge rocks at the end of the chasm, the yellow brown seaweeds seem to glow with it. I positioned my tripod near the edge and took a few shots. Its one of the most surreal scenes I ever saw, its a world on its own and far from the typical white sand covered beaches of Tambobong.
