Amazing rock formations! The guide who brought us here was very entertaining and patient. So beautiful white sand and clear waters. We took a lot of photos, swam for 10minutes and off we left as it gets scary on a boat when it's high tide and the current is high. This is purely an island with no stores to buy... More

What I love about this island is the huge rock formation, perfect for photo ops. However, the rock has rough surface so be careful when climbing. A friend sustained a wound on her foot when she slipped. Also, you need durable slippers when climbing the rock.

Instagram worthy! Any where you point your camera, was a beauty to behold. There were even some little fish swimming near thew shore line (an indication that the water is clean)

We stopped by here for snorkeling and it was perfect! We experienced slight rain that made it darker to see the corals and fishes below but it was still a beautiful experience. Worth to include this island for your island hopping.

Cagbanilad Island is more known for snorkeling activities within its perimeter. Just a few meters away from Cagbanilad’s shore are corals and schools of fish! We didn't stop by the island, but in the middle of the lake. Gota Beach is also viewable from here.

We did the short trip Island hopping in January so the first few islands we went to the sea was quite rough. We stopped at this little island with the big rock for our lunch and it was beautiful, we stayed for about 2 hours and there was no one else there. Nothing to see snorkelling wise but the swimming...

You should not miss this destination. Experience its pristine waters, smooth and super fine sands, amazing greenery and above all the wow effect that it can give you when you are there. Super Love this part of Caramoan.
