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. :)

White Beach is typical to all 4 beaches we visited to 4 Island of Caramoan. We love the clear water and less use of the places. It seems one of the Island was used by Miss World Beauty Pageant. Even the famous Survivor episode is being film at said Island in Caramoan. The Road is basically good except some sections... More

Matukad island was 3rd in our list. What we enjoyed the most in this place was the lagoon where the "princess" was hidden. The so called royalty was a "bangus" fish in the secluded area of the island. We need to climb the steep rock formation for us to see the beautiful creature, swimming alone in her abode. This is...

We went to this magnificent island and was really amazed with the powdery and fine white sand. No stones. Walking barefoot was fun. The water was so clear and clean. Was just disappointed that a few people still leave their trash and cigarette butts on that beautiful sand.

Took the boat from Sabang Port near Naga City. Beautiful scenery along the way. It's a little over an hour to get to Caramoan. I stayed at a small bed-and breakfast near the town of Caramoan. I hired some local fishermen and their boat for island hopping. I explored Sabitang Laya first. We had to pick up garbage for an... More
