Secluded islands of Caramoan

Caramoan offers unparalleled coastal exploration opportunities. But that’s not the ultimate reason why I still want to go back even though I already had the opportunity to visit some of Caramoan’s must-see islands twice.

Perhaps, it’s the secluded islands and the exclusivity that they could offer. Who would not want to laze on an exotic island and have it all to yourselves even just for half a day?

Here are the must-see islands that we were able to visit and enjoy only for ourselves in my first visit to Caramoan:

Cotivas island is one secluded area that will make you think you are in the middle of nowhere.

Tinago beach/lagoon is surrounded by imposing rock formations covered with lush green vegetation. In Bicol dialect, the root word tago means hide.

Our friend discovered this beach at the back of the hill in Manlawe island.

We threw away all our inhibitions and acted like young fools in this lagoon. We had to shout, swim and play with the subtle waves to forget about the cold water threatening to overcome our senses.

Upon seeing this island, it is as if we didn’t mind that we had to travel for another less than thirty minutes to reach our destination, the Guijalo port. This sight is just so captivating that we begged manong bangkero to drop us off and let us stay on the island for a few minutes.
