Ever since when I was young, we always go to Cagwait white beach to celebrate birthdays and weddings, and we even go here without any occasions at all. Cagwait white beach is a perfect place to enjoy the sand and the beach without going too far from our hometown, Tandag.

We got here last September, after our mandatory quarantine, It was a fun and quick dip but it was all worth it.
