“Survivor” Islands of Caramoan
If you are hiding or trying to escape the crowded population of the city you can mark Caramoan Islands as one of the great destinations with less population. The “Survivor” Islands of Caramoan gives you great chance to do island hopping. Describing this place as beautiful is an understatement which is why this place became a setting for many international reality shows.
“Matukad” Group of Islands
Though this is considered as one of the most affordable when it comes to island hopping in Caramoan, this is considered to be as one of the most popular because this is where the actual Survivor series was shot. You can book a tour for less than Php 2000 including a motorcycle round trip tour. One of the great things to do here while island hopping is climbing on the cliffs to take a closer look at the lagoon. Just don’t forget to add some safety measures because the cliffs are very steep. It’s best to have a second thought if you are not a good climber and then just satisfy yourself in taking pictures.
To add another list of island you can hop at Caramoan, Sabitang Laya would be a great destination too. This is one of the most beautiful islands where you can swim among the marine life. The majestic rock formation will make you feel closer to nature, not to mention the mangroves and white sand beaches that are longer that you can imagine.
Are you thinking about where to spend your lunch in the middle of the great island destination? Manlawi Island will give you chance to dine at a beautiful cottage for only Php 200. Just don’t forget to allow at least an hour for your travel from the port going here so you will arrive on time for your lunch. There is also where you can find sea shells for sale in the middle of your island hopping for a very small amount of Php20.
Here you can enjoy a walk at the very long white sandbar, this sandbar also connects to the majestic limestone which is famous here. If by any chance you experience heavy rain during your stay here in Lahos Island, you can take pride in experiencing the smooth white sheet of sand brought by the small waves during the rain.
It’s best that you do your island hopping here in Caramoan Islands while it’s still new and rates are not yet very high. Being one of the first hopper here gives you pride of the experience that others would still try in the near future.
