Caramoan is a group of islands isolated from the rest of the Camarines Sur, Philippines. It is the perfect island hopping get-away where you can do a lot of adventures like snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, limestone cliff / rock climbing, caving or just wading and swimming thru its fine white sand beaches.
The peninsula contains the 347-hectare (860-acre) Caramoan National Park which was established in 1938. The park has caves, limestone formations, white sandy beaches, an islet lake and a subterranean river, make it popular with tourists. It is accessible by public transport from the town of Caramoan, and local people have established trails in the park for visitors.
You’ll first experience a bumpy ride and at least 1.5 hours boating from Sabang beach before you can reach it. Thus, its natural beauty was hidden and only few adventurers go there to experience what this place has to offer. Although in recent years, Caramoan was already being visited by some foreign and locals, it was still not as jammed-packed as the Boracay Island, until “Koh-Lanta Caramoan 2008”, a French version of the reality show “Survivor”, had Caramoan Islands particularly the Gota Beach as their shooting location. That was an opportunity that led to its recognition as a Philippine island destination that actually and constantly draws a high percentage of visitors every year until today.
