Only about 5 minutes away from the town center, this bridge is perfect for a late afternoon stroll, and is a great spot to enjoy the pristine beauty of the Balincaguin River. It is also easy to access the river from here, with a short flight of steps leading down to the water. The depth is great but strong swimmers may find the calm waters irresistible. For those who enjoy watersports, stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking are also possible, though the sight and the rush of the river can be enjoyed just by sitting on the banks watching it flow past.
If there's any view that will make you fall in love with Agno, it's the one you'll see from this viewpoint, which is really just a random stop on a winding road in Calomboyan. In the sunshine, you'll be treated to more greens and blues than your eyes can handle, with the lush treetops in perfect contrast to the gossamer sheen of the Balincaguing River. With such incredible beauty before you, you'll be compelled to take a million snaps, but before you commence your mini-photo shoot, take a moment to breathe and take the view in sans tech. It'll be good for your lungs, as well as your soul.
If you want to see mother nature's handiwork at its finest, this is where you should go. As the name suggests, these rocks have been carved out by the sea to their present umbrella-esque shape. These peculiarly-shaped rock formations that line the shore of Agno's Sabangan beach are beautiful at any time of the day, but the sight of them at sunrise is especially striking; so drag yourself out of bed if you have to. Nearby, there is also a lighthouse that offers you a birds-eye view of the beach, as well as a glimpse of the Umbrella rocks from above.
