This island would be one of the islands that Caramoan has to offer. And what makes this island unique is there is a lagoon inside it. They say there's a magical bangus/milkfish that swims in it, and I think it was about 3 ft long? You'll have to go through a steep climb first before you'll get to see this... More

The place is picturesque specially on the otherside of the beach front, turquoise to blue colored water with some cliffs on the background.... More

I was there last weekend and its crowded with tourist. I saw few trashes floating in the sea and pick some of them (beyond my reach). I hope other tourist will bring all their trashes with them to preserve the beauty of the place. It was beautiful indeed and it's the most beautiful island I've been to on my first... More

I like the over all atmosphere. Nice and quiet. What I disliked: it seems like the local tourists leave or throw their trash in the place. What a shame. My family and I even had to pick up some of the trash and took them back to our hotel.

The place is absolutely one of the best in Caramoan. For people who aren't really accustomed to wading in rough seas this isn't the best place for you. But for those that don't care about the big waves this is a sure haven. The beach though is perfect for everyone. The sand is so fine and there are trees that... More

The waves are definitely unforgettable. At first, I was hesitant to continue the journey going there because the waves were quite scary but the boatmen told us that its one hell of a challenge and we'll gonna love it! And he was right it was worth it. The water is not so salty and the scenery is perfect.

Great isolated each. Not too many people. You can have a picnic on the shore and climb up and down some rocks to see the lagoon.

White sand, clean water, not so salty water, great scenery. Everything is perfect. This is our first island during the island hopping. The trip was definitely worth it. :)
