I wasn't expecting much going on this trip. My first thought was, where the heck is Caramoan? Little did I know I would be pleasantly surprised. I've been to most of the popular destinations in the Philippines. All were breathtaking, but I found myself slightly irritated at times because of the large crowds that visit these popular areas. It's only... More

The best part was the minor climb to the Enchanted lagoon and seeing a solitary MilkFish swimming. I got some bruises but its worth the experience.

My wife and I were there this past Thanksgiving even though its Amihan time and the waves are high we still went island hopping to at least get to see what Caramoan can offer. We're glad we did as Matukad Island is one great beach comparable to Boracay. You get to enjoy the beach without the hassle of bumping into... More

One can access thru island hopping tour available thru the resort you stay in Caramoan. We always have lunch in the island and an hour or so of relaxation... More

Definitely one of the best weekend i ever had. Stayed here with new found friends. Got drunk, slept at the sand. Woke up feeling so hyper. The long drive is definitely worth it.

The island is honestly better than most of the islands in el nido and better than boracay! The sand is very fine and you can see Pandan trees around the area.
