18 Photos That Will Make You Want To Visit Caramoan

March 11, 2017 Caramoan, Camarines Sur, Philippines

Caramoan Islands Camarines Sur
Caramoan Island Camarines Sur
Caramoan is a town located in the south-eastern most part of Camarines Sur, Bicol region, Philippines - composed of 10 principal islands namely Bag-ing, Cagbanilad, Catanhawan, Cotivas, Lahus, Lahuy, Matukad, Minalahos, Pitogo, and Sabitang-Laya, and a number of islets in between. Known for as the hit reality show "Survivor" filming location. With fine white sand beaches, limestone cliffs, rock formations, lagoons, caves, and diverse marine life, no wonder they chose to film the show there.

Here are photos that would make you want to get your backpack and go straight to Caramoan! Tip: It's a 10-13 hour drive from Manila.

This is the view from Matukad Island, where you can climb up to see the lagoon where the Tale of the Two Milkfishes (Alamat ng Dalawang Bangus) lies. The tale says that there was a man who found two milkfishes, just two, in a lagoon hidden behind a wall of limestone rocks. It was about 20 years ago when the man took one of the two fishes and took it home for his family's supper. Until the next day, the whole family who ate the fish were found dead. No one ever touched the fish in the lagoon since then. It was a cool story but what keeps me doubting is: if one fish was taken, how come there are still two fishes today?

Down that path is the lagoon where the two milkfishes live. We're not allowed to go further down, but I saw the two fishes with my own eyes. It really was amazing how there were just the two of them in the whole lagoon.

  8. The photos are fascinating and like you places like these make me proud being a Filo. I haven't been in this area though but been to Coron a couple of times. The hilltop makes it even more beautiful being so close to the ocean. Nice to find your blog.

  9. Grabe summer na summer na ang vibe ng post mo, Actually, taga Bicol ako friend pero di ko pa yan nasisilayan ang Caramoan. I think yung though ng magbabangka pa does not really catch up my interest. Medyo traumatic kasi ako sa tubig.
