An idyllic cove southeast of Virac, Catanduanes vibrates with soul that permeates the seawaters within it, the green hills envelopes it as it feels secured and serene under the guardianship of its two sentinels the Viracnons call the twin rock.
They donâ€™t look like twins though' with the inner rock much bigger than the outer one, anyone can imagine that they must have been born years apart. Nature must have so designed them to stand majestically, even intimidatingly to preserve and protect the serenity of the place.
Try walking on its white sands and when in the middle of the semi-circular beach, observe and ravish the incessant call of the great Pacific. Itâ€™s tireless waves breaking before reaching the portals of Igangâ€™s cove and continue its rhythmic ripples to lap at the shores. The waters come endlessly and leaves temporarily in a rhythm so poignantly expressive; so much like life itself; assuring all that as life must come and go, so must it complete a cycle.
And Igang must have had umpteenth cycles as its souls nourishes the fullness of her being. Whatever modern ways and systems have been applied to it, however the imaginative masters have cosmetically rearranged her contours, build and construct indigenous habitat or concrete edifices on it, the resilient soul of Igang continues to blend with the fad and fashion of the times.
Barely fifteen lazy driving minutes from the heart of Virac, its mysteriously comforting calm and its safe refuge to visiting tourists, whether foreign or domestic, are warm assurances of a wholesome and relaxing experience.
Listen and i really mean listen to the song of its southeasterly wind. When you shall have set your mind meet a new adventure, when you shall have mentally composed your own melody, then you must have discovered what serenity is all about. And serenity is the very soul of Igang's TwinRock.
