It is so quiet not many tourist. The crew bought us chairs, tables, drinks and great fook wrapped with banana leaves. Colorful corals and lots of beautiful fish plus turtles. After lunch it was so relaxing to lie on the peach. Great scenery. I really love this place for it is so relaxing.

If you enjoy climbing, here is a challenge for you. To see the lagoon, you have to climb up and down some rocks. It's a fun challenge and you get a great view once you reach the top.

Tayak Lagoon is probably my most favorite on our island hopping at Caramoan. This stunning emerald green lagoon is nestled behind Tayak beach. You can enter by trekking on a slippery trail and sharp cliffs but our tour guide told me that you can also enter by swimming underneath the rocks on the side of the beach.

We have been on Matukad Island three times during our visit and on my last visit I was asked by someone if I don't want to climb up the steep rocks to the lagoon...I did it...the view from above is fantastic but you have to be very careful climbing up.The rocks are very sharp!

I climbed on the sharp rock just to get to this place. It was one of my best travels being able to climb some rocks, be on top and get a beautiful view of the island. Incredibly beautiful!
