    Enchanting Bucas Grande Island


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     matetreyes rode in one of these boats on June 21, on the way to the stingless jellyfish sanctuary in Bucas Grande Island. She takes travel photos and writes for Phillippine Tatler magazine but was on the island for a personal vacation. 'I submitted this photo because I want everyone in the world to know that the Philippines is not only about Boracay, or Palawan, or Cebu -- that there are many unspoilt places here that everyone can enjoy,' she says. Her image was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for November 27, 2013.

    The alluring Bucas Grande Island in Socorro, Surigao del Norte is home to enchanting Sohoton Cove, a lagoon whose opening is half-submerged in water and is only accessible during low tide. It also has a stingless jellyfish sanctuary and a plethora of powdery white sand beaches and secret lakes.
