Cagbalete Island

Cagbalete is an island in the town of Mauban Quezon, about three hours east of Metro Manila. It is situated on Lamon Bay together with Balesin, Alabat and Polilio Islands. Its proximity to Manila and its uncrowded beaches is a plus point for Cagbalete Island. Cagbalete Island is a 1,640.4874-hectare property in Quezon Province. Although all areas of the island are privately-owned, the southwestern part of it is populated by a number of Visayan fisherfolks who have settled in the idle lands. Known as “Sabang”, this fishing village can be estimated to be populated by over a thousand people. These people have learned to live through by earning money from fishing, farming (there are ricefields in certain areas), woodcutting, getting lumber and copra, and drying/ processing seaweeds..


Cagbalete or “Cabalete” in some maps, is truly a rare jewel. It is home to a number of species of land animals and sea creatures. Kingfishers, parrots, eagles, and other uncommon birds can usually be seen flying over the area of the island. It is also the habitat of the coconut crab or “kuray” (the Cagbalete favorite), starfishes, “alimasag”, “umang”, etc., and a long time ago, the “pawikan” (giant sea turtle). For divers and snorkeling-fanatics, underwater exploration is a treat with the diverse and colorful marine life that can be discovered beneath the rocks and corals.


The changing of tides is very evident in Cagbalete. During low tide, the waters can move as far back as 1 kilometer, leaving the shore dry and exposing all the rocks and corals that may be underneath. The low tide-high tide cycle occurs twice in a day, so if there is low tide during lunch time, high tide will come late in the afternoon, and the next low tide will occur at midnight, depending on the season.

Kamay ni Hesus Healing Center

A spiritual journey right at the foot of Mt. Banahaw, every pilgrim experiences inner joy, peace and warmth. Kamay ni Hesus Shrine is an ideal destination for pilgrims and tourists not only during the holy week and simbang gabi but during the whole ecclesiastical year. The Eucharist is celebrated almost daily; healing mass is part of Fr. Joey’s everyday apostolate. Even for non catholics or non believers, Kamay ni Hesus Shrine is a serene place for everybody.

At the church’s backdrop is a steep hill transformed into a picturesque Via Dolorosa Grotto of Healing and Purification, all of 292 steps, including the life-size statues of the 14 Stations of the Cross is leading to a 50-foot statue of the Ascending Christ —the third biggest in the world than can be seen miles away.
Rev. Father Joey Faller, spiritual director of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal of the Philippines and founder of the kamay ni Hesus Healing Church visualized the church to give the sick and the spiritually weak a haven where they could feel and experience the presence of God.
