Insider's Guide (Nature Unfurled) pp 66-67 spread
My photo of Cagbalete's unique low tide scenery joins other photos from unspoilt destinations in Seair InFlight magazine's Insider Guide (Nature Unfurled) for its Dec 2009 - Jan 2010 issue. (Seen on the same spread as my friend Eric's Turtle Sanctuary photo)
During low tide, Cagbalete's eastern beaches become several kilometers of dry land. The water recedes more than 800 meters from the usual shoreline. The beach is so flat that even on high tide you'll be able to walk 500 meters out to sea and still be in waist deep waters.
Cagbalete is also known for its wild life. While I took the shot in Villa Cleofas on the northern end of the island's eastern shore, greater and lesser egrets as well as various species of sea birds are just nearby, feeding on crustaceans and small fishes trapped in pools.
