Located 2 kilometers off the shores of San Vicente Port in Sta. Ana in the province of Cagayan, Crocodile Island is a small island that resembles a crocodile resting on a sandbar.  Crocodile Island Details The island is officially named  Manidad Island . However, some call it  Rona Island  but most refer to it as Crocodile Island . Crocodile Island Can you spot the crocodile? Up close and personal The crocodile's head The back of the croc From San Vicente Port, the island is a mere 10-minute boat ride away. the island is also included in the itinerary if you availed of the Palaui Island tour.

Anguib Beach Anguib Beach Details: Anguib Beach is one of the hidden gems of North Luzon. It is probably the northeasternmost beach on the island of Luzon. In fact, my group had to brave ferocious waves in order for us to reach the beach. However, there is a much safer route for those who easily get seasick. You can rent a tricycle or drive directly from Sta. Ana to Anguib Beach. The main difference is the travel time. If you take the boat you'll probably have an hour of travel time compared to the more than an hour's worth of travel time by land.
