Caramoan Islands (farthest from Paniman)

Island hopping packages in Caramoan usually come in two. One is for Matukad group of islands or those near Paniman. The other one is for the more distant islands from two jump-off sites in the peninsula.

Part 1 of this blog features those near Paniman, where almost all island hopping in Caramoan peninsula starts. This is the second part, so the islands that are featured on this post are the more distant ones from Paniman.

Here is the list of islands I have had visited in my three-time visits.

Sabitang Laya


Sabitang Laya is actually not that far from Matukad group of islands, but since it is out of the way from islands near Paniman, it is usually crossed out in package A.

It was not opened to tourists when a Survivor franchise was filming in the peninsula, because like Matukad, Sabitang Laya was one of the two islands in Caramoan where castaways had stayed.

Bag-ing Beach


On the other side of Sabitang Laya is another secluded beach called Bag-ing.



The farthest island we reached during our first visit.


Another white sandy beach located just opposite Cotivas.



Boatmen tend to bring island hoppers here at lunchtime maybe because it is the only island in Caramoan with cottages. Staying at the cottages has a fee.


Another sandbar discovered by my friend on the other side of the hill in Manlawi.
