Tinaga is an island located in the municipality of Vinzons, Camarines Norte in the Philippines. It is one of the two major islands in the Calaguas Group of Islands, about eight kilometers long. Tinaga island is famous for its long white sand beach called Mahabang Buhangin, which literally means "long beach". [1] The beach is becoming popular among backpackers and campers from Manila and elsewhere.

Beaches of Tinaga Island[edit]

  • Mahabang Buhangin (long beach) is the most popular beach to campers and backpackers at Tinaga Island. The beach offers powdery white sands comparable to that of Boracay island in Malay, Aklan.

Transportation[edit]

The island is accessible only by outrigger boat from Daet, Vinzons or Paracale. The island is less developed in terms of road infrastructure, so walking is common among local people. A wharf is located at the center in the village of Mangcawayan.
