Secluded Caramoan islands all to yourselves

Caramoan offers unparalleled coastal exploration opportunities. But that’s not the reason why I still want to go back having visited twice some of this peninsula’s must-see islands.

Perhaps, it’s the secluded islands and the exclusivity that they give. 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.

Tinago (hidden) beach/lagoon because it is within these imposing rock formations covered with lush green vegetation. In Bicol dialect, the root word tago means hide.

Manlawe’s neighbor “desert” island.

What’s the antidote for icy cold water? Keep moving like we did in this lagoon. So swim, play with the waves and shout, if you must.

Upon seeing this island, it is as if we didn’t mind that we had to travel for thirty minutes more to reach our destination- the Guijalo port. This sight was simply captivating that we had to beg manong bangkero to drop us off and let us stay on the island for a few minutes.

Can you imagine how our excitement had kicked in at that time?
