Camarines Norte is a province of the Philippine located in the Bicol Region in Luzon. Its capital is Daet and the province borders Quezon to the west and Camarines Sur to the south.
Camarines Norte is nestled between two regional tongues such as Tagalog and Bicol. It has a distinction for being a crossroads of the Tagalog and Bicol cultures. As of the latest count, there are more Tagalog speaking people in Camarines Norte than those who have Bicol as their native tongue. This linguistic situation lends itself to a greater cultural cohesion with Bicolanos and Tagalog because it provides a wider corridor for Camarines Norte to have larger cultural base.
Camarines Norte boasts breathtaking beaches, majestic waterfalls, crystalline rivers, verdant and lush mountains, historic churches and shrines, vastly rich cultural heritage, distinctive cuisines, the World’s First Ever Rizal Monument, and kind-hearted and good-natured people. It is reputed to be the Land of Gold and Golden Oppurtunities.
One of the best island in Camarines Norte is Calaguas Island. The Calaguas Islands are located in the Municipality of Vinzons, Camarines Norte. It is known for its pristine beaches—the most popular among these is the Mahabang Buhangin beach, which is made up of a long stretch of powdery white sand.
