About Cauayan

Unlike common tourist destinations, Cauayan has rich agricultural views and a relaxed local feel. The city thrives on its rice and corn fields and is known for its friendly residents.

It’s a gateway to explore lesser-known scuba diving wonders in the Philippines like Tubbataha Reefs, a UNESCO site; and Apo Reef, the world’s second-largest coral reef. In Cauayan, enjoy the best of both worlds – on land and in the sea.
