Cam. Norte reopens to tourists

By Rosalita Manlangit


The Camarines Norte provincial government has opened the Centennial Wharf in Bagasbas, Daet town to signal the reopening of tourism in the province after over a year of hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.


The Centennial Wharf located along the scenic Cory Aquino Boulevard in Bagasbas, Daet town is expected to become a major tourism hub in the province by next year.


“We are ready in our tourism, and all vaccinated individuals can easily enter the province as tourist,”, Gov. Edgardo Tallado said during the recent Network Briefing News radio program hosted by Asec. JV Arcena of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO).


Tallado said aside from Calaguas Island, the province also has beautiful water falls and fresh water springs, which tourists would enjoy.


The wharf has a visitor’s center where briefings are conducted prior to departure of local and foreign guests to Calaguas Islands and other island destinations in the province, Tallado said.


It has complete amenities and facilities and is adjacent to apartelle-type hotels aside from shopping and pasalubong centers that offer food products and delicacies that are truly ‘tatak-CamNorteño’.


The governor said that the 8.7 kilometer Cory Aquino Boulevard, which connects the towns of Mercedes, Daet and Talisay, is the longest in the country. It will soon extend to the towns of Vinzons, Labo and Paracale. (PIA5/Camarines Norte)
