Caramoan Islands (farthest from Paniman)

The island hopping packages in Caramoan usually come in two. One is for island hopping to 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 in this blog are the more distant ones from Paniman.

Here are the list of islands I have had the opportunity to set foot in my three-time visits in the peninsula.

Sabitang Laya


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

It is not open to tourists when a Survivor franchise is filming in the peninsula, because like Matukad, Sabitang Laya is one of the two islands in Caramoan where castaways stay.

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. In this island is where the clouds could almost kiss the mountains.


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 does not come with a fee.


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