July 29, 2016. It was almost noon when we left Lahos island. And for our 3rd stop, the boatmen took us to Matukad Island. Instantly, I was smitten by its beauty, I was hypnotized by its overall serenity. It was a blue lagoon that I can't forget. I enjoyed the leisurely walk on the white powdery sand, the sight of...

The island of Matukad is very picturesque. My companions & I enjoyed taking pictures in different parts of the island..............It's very rewarding to reach by climbing up to the highest peak of the island ..,.

This can be easily organised locally. Perfect and peaceful swimming. Hopefully you'll be able to climb the cliffs for better views of the surrounding area. The milk fish is easily visible swimming in that natural pool from up there too.

Matukad has finer sand than Lahos. Water is the same as in Lahos. At Matukad you can climb up the rock formations to reach the lagoon where they say there is a Milkfish. You will definitely enjoy your stay at Matukad. Lahos and Matukad Islands, the best in Caramoan.

This is the best island in the area. A must visit. Climbing the cliff is very rewarding. breathtaking view up there. The only downside is that it is overcrowded as of the moment (April to May 2016). Many of the islands in caramoan are close due to the filming of survivor series (until july 2016). and this island is one... More

Climbing up there is really exciting. Its a rewarding if you see the milkfish that guard the mystical lagoon. The sand is fine.

I really love this island because its really memorable and unforgettable experience. We pitch a tent here and take a rest and asleep for almost 3 hours, we climb at the top of the rock formation, you should wear aqua shoe or rubber shoes because of the sharp stone.

This is one of the top Islands in Caramoan not only because it has clear waters and fine sand but because it has a breathtaking view once you climb the rocks. The climb isn't that hard (It would take you less than 10 minutes) and you would see a fresh water lake with milk fish on top. You'd also get... More

The stone in the island which you can climb can give you a very great view of the location. But the stones are sharp so you should be careful.
