I love Matukad Island. I've visited it many times over the last 10 years. I've seen it evolve as a pristine quiet sanctuary to a crowded piece of real estate overrun by tourists. I was in Matukad twice last June and both shores were full of parked boats and so many people swimming or soaking in the crystal-clear waters, even... More

This is the best Island in Caramoan! Every angle of the island is picturesque and perfect for Instagram. The sand is so fine and the waters are perfect for swimming. We did a short trekking in this island to see the giant "bangus" (milkfish) and we were lucky to see it! It's like a small shark swimming alone in the... More

The island is our 4th stop from the 6-island tour package we had. After climbing the almost vertical towering karst with jagged rocks, the 360-degree view on top is breathtakingly spectacular! And the fact that I was able to ascend and explore the mystery and beauty of this formidable island with my husband is such an incomparable moment. I saw... More

This was the first island we visited from our island hopping tour! The water is indeed clear and the sand is powder like. We also took the challenge on climbing the sharp rocks just to see the "enchanted bangus" swimming in a secluded place over those sharp rock formations. The view was spectacular (but be warned, the rocks are sharp... More

Great beach for the family. Nice clean, compact white sand, clear water and really nice view. You trek up the rocky hill nearby to see the entire beach and a secluded lagoon. The island is just a couple of minutes cruise from Hannah's beach. You have to avail of your hotel's butler-tour guideservice for you to enjoy a hassle-free island... More

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

Me and my Gf went here last april 24, our first stop for our bicol tour and our last stop for our caramoan island hopping and where we set camp for the night and cook our meals. The place is picturesque specially on the otherside of the beach front, turquoise to blue colored water with some cliffs on the background.... More
