Calaguas is a common reference to a group of islands, northeast of Vinzons, Camarines Norte, Paracale and Daet towns in Camarines Norte in the Philippines. It is composed of three major islands; Tinaga Island, Guintinua Island and Maculabo Island and other small islets. Tinaga Island is the most popular to backpackers from Manila and elsewhere due to its famous white sand beach called Mahabang Buhangin, which literally means 'long beach'. Mahabang Buhangin rivals the fine sands of Boracay, a popular tourist destination in Malay.
Calaguas is accessible from Manila by boat transfer thru Paracale, Vinzons or Daet in Camarines Norte.
At the moment, there are no restaurants at the island. It may be possible to buy some basic food in the Barangay.
At the moment, the accommodation is limited to more than basic nipa huts (gazebos actually, which can be rough with all the mosquitoes around) or bringing your own tent. There is some development on the northern side of the beach, so that might change.
