Panay Island | Things to do in Panganiban-Catanduanes

Standing for Long Range Aid to Navigation, LORAN is a former American naval base built around the early 1950s as an outpost to monitor movements in the Pacific Ocean. Abandoned in 1972, the camp was then used by local coastguards in 1980 and was again abandoned. The former US Coast Guard facility station is no longer operational, but for the locals who used to be civilian employees, it is a continuing saga.
Ilihan Point commonly known as “Boto ni Kurakog” to locals, is a phallic landmass located at the bay of Bagamanoc. “Boto ni Kurakog” is literally translated as “Kurakog’s Penis”. The landmark is a column of earth and loose rock that rise five meters above the sea and resembles the male sex organ. It is also known as Fertility Island.
The beach is white and seen from afar, the panorama is simply superb. The whole stretch of Soboc Cove continues to beguile visitors with its unspoiled beauty, an asset which the locals within the area are guarding zealously.
