We were lucky that were allowed to dock and see the Gota Village resort, a place in the island where crew of the Survivor TV series stays. Must include this island on your visit in Caramoan.

It's fine for staying in the attached resort but if not, don't make a special journey. However they do have 1 beach that had beach hits, that is special. But the main beach is nothing amazing

Start off your adventure in caramoan at gota beach and be comfortable in your stay at the gota village resort. If you want to go island hopping a boat for hire with a tour guide and then you can explore beautiful islands like matukad with clean sand beach, lahos with unique rock formations.

Caramoan is not yet commercialized during the time I've visited back in 2008. Here you can go snorkeling, boating, rock climbing, exploring. However, personally, it's enough to visit at least once.

It's an interesting destination for Survivor fans because the production stayed at Gota Village Resort and tribal council was located on Gota 2, located just next to the Gota Village beach. The views are spectacular and breathtaking but compared to islands nearby, it falls a little short to be a must see in the region. If you have too much... More

Gota Beach has white powdery sand that's cool even under the noonday sun. It has a wide beach front, and gradually slopes down for about 50m. Since it is in a deep cove, it is protected from strong currents. It is very safe for kids to swim in. There are limestone cliffs on both sides of the cove, and the... More

After shooing away our tricycle driver the security guard let us in to check out Gota Beach. Seemed to be more of a well heeled Filipino's holiday destination by the look of 4wd vehicles. Many identical cabins around the area.
