Siargao seascapes: Photogenic Daku, Guyam, and Naked Island

Aren’t these islands photogenic?

Now I can’t blame my friend for telling me that

we could enjoy Siargao even without surfing.

Islands of Caramoan at a glance

Image

Setting foot on this anonymous island is a prelude to the exciting island adventure in Caramoan peninsula. Those who chartered a trip by boatĀ from Sabang Port to Guijalo Pier instead of opting to ride in a passenger boat can have the opportunity to drop by on this island. All they have to do is ask their boatman.

It is the island nearest Paniman, one of the jump-off sites for island hopping in the peninsula.

Gota Beach. A private beach resort where the production team of Survivor stayed. Tourists can also visit this island with a fee.

The island opposite Gota. The water is just as clear, and the view as picturesque.

Lahus. Open on both sides. Sandwiched by two rock formations. It is the island closest to Matukad, one of the islands in Caramoan used in filming Survivor episodes.

Tinago Beach. A cove that only skilled boatmen can access. It is very serene here as it is hidden among the limestone cliffs. Hence, the name tinago or hidden.

Another secluded beach near Paniman. Like Lahus it is facing an open sea, thus the slightly stronger current and the bigger the waves than those in completely walled islets. Its position makes the waves a lot of fun to play in.

*These islands are a 15 -minute (more or less) boatride away from Paniman. Part 2 of this blog will consist of islands farthest from Paniman.
