Don't let bad weather stop you getting here. My girlfriend and I went in the torrential rain and had an amazing time! The beach is stunning, the sea is warm and there are huge rocks which you can either climb or gaze upon. To top it all off, see if you can find the magical giant milkfish in his own... More

Short travel from the Paniman Beach. Couple of limestones for picture taking. Clean beach. Go there for relaxation, you'll enjoy the view :)

Part of our island-hopping package. Just a small strip of sand in an island. You can swim a bit. Gota Resort where we stayed was visible in the distance.

I read on blogs that it's easier to go to Caramoan via Virac airport so that's what we did. From the airport, we walked out to the main road since we don't want to be ripped off by the trikes waiting at the airport. There was this trike that kept on following us and even waited for us to finish... More

I love it so much here. It has the finest sand ever just like milk! The water is so cool, refreshing and PRESTINE! Staying on the water doing nothing under the shady leaves of the trees feels so good. We went up the rock formation and saw the beautiful peninsula. Wish we couldve stayed longer. But our guide rushed us... More

Caramoan peninsula is breathtaking! The whitest sand could be found at MATUKAD island. Our enjoyment was cut short from 2pm due to stronger waves past 4pm and the boatmen had advised us to leave. If you really want to stay longer,be there early morning. Pristine island, great rock formations, clear waters, white sand as smooth as white sugar, what else... More

Caramoan Peninsula is blessed with beautiful and unique islands. Matukad is by far the best. Definitely a breathtaking place once you are on top of the steep and sharp rocks going to the mystical lake.

Finest sands among the islands in Caramoan. There's a hidden lake (with a mysterious story) -- though we didn't get to see it because you have to climb the steep rocky walls...

One word: Enchanting. From the legend of the milkfish to pure white and sandy shores, I consider Matukad island one of my fave. Make sure you have this in your itinerary. :)

Matukad is perhaps the most visited island in Caramoan beacuse it has a wide sandy beach and it is nearest to Paniman Beach where most inns are. We had our lunch here during our island hopping. The sea has a wide expanse of sea weeds and soft corals where a lot of colorful fish abound. We also saw squid eggs... More
