Caramoan Peninsula - Island Hopping

Last weekend Jun 20-21, me and friends went for an island hopping in Camarines Sur, Bicol. WE choose Caramoan Island because it is less crowded, not so far from the city and not that commercialized than Boracay.

First, Caramoan Peninsula is one of the "Secret Paradise remains unexploited from commercial tourism" in the Philippines where you can enjoy the picturesque view of the sunset, long shorelines, powdery white sands, limestone rock formations, crystal clear water, and abundant reefs.

We went to 5 islands.

Matukad Island

this is what we saw as we are approaching to the first island


as soon as we reached the shore, we jumped from the boat, ran along the shore, climbed the rocks and took photos

Lahus Island is the most famous from all the islands in the peninsula. It was featured in Survivor Show from four countries (Bulgaria, France, Italy & Romania) and this year, it will also be featured in Survivor Sweden.

We saw some men setting up a camp for the show and we are lucky that this island is open to the tourist on that day because some of the islands will be closed for the show.

Well, these are only 2 of the islands that we visited, but this is it for now I'll tell and show you more later, about the food that we ate, other places we went to, the presents I bought for my friends and more photos.
