Getting Lost With Names - Claveria

This topic started with this article

There are three towns that bear the same name and those are located up north, middle part (almost Visayas) and down in Mindanao. Hmm!

Claveria is a town in the province of Cagayan (Region 2 – Cagayan Valley). This is the northern-most town of the island of Luzon that faces the Babuyan Channel. A fantastic place to visit for sights, sea, sand and sun. This will be your best rest area if daring to skirt the northern tip of Luzon east to west or vice versa. There are also the lighthouse and a waterfall by the sea!

The next Claveria is a town in the province of Masbate (Region 5 – Bicol). It is actually the southern half of Burias Island. Just across from Sorsogon. This is also a nice place to visit for sandy beaches white or otherwise. The little islands across this town are little paradises. One of those islands has a very wide shallow area of white sand with nearby coral reefs for the insatiable snorkelers!

The last Claveria is a town in the province of Misamis Oriental (Region 10 – Northern Mindanao). This is an enormous town in terms of land area and it is landlocked but with a lot for the tourist. Sitting just behind a city (Gingoog), this town has very nice vistas of rolling hills, cities and coastal areas of the province. Plus it is one of the most abundant agricultural towns in the island of Mindanao. Oh, don’t miss the canopy walk!
