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

White beach with crystal clear waters. Family can safely swim and wade in the refreshing water. Guests can likewise rest under the shade of trees along the beach. They can likewise go rock climbing to see the "lagoon" on top where the enchanted milk fish is located.

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
