Our second stop was Matukad Island. The highlight was the lagoon located at the top, where the view was fantastic. I didn't risk climbing, but my daughter did & took some wonderful shots of the view of the island.

Even when it is not a holy festival holiday the boats pour in. Still, it is fun, Interesting and of course lovely for a spot of snorkelling. Small stretch of sandy beach and not far from Paniman. Fidelscastrol.

Matukad was the second island I visited during my first trip to Caramoan. Its beach has pristine shallow waters and ivory powdery sand. Trees line the shoreline, providing shade. Matukad island will take your breath away—figuratively and literally. Behind a vast limestone wall hides a...More
