Caramoan Islands in Camarines Sur

       Caramoan Islands are located at the tip of Caramoan Peninsula, a group of islands isolated from the rest of Camarines Sur. It is the perfect adventure for island hopping, rock climbing, caving or wading and swimming thru its fine white sand beaches.





       The municipality is situated between east longitude 124°59" and 13°46" north latitude. It covers approximately 27,741 square kilometers with approximately 71 kilometers of irregular coastline surrounded by the vast ocean, bay, seas and swamps. It is approximately 501 kilometers away from Metro Manila; 95 kilometers from the municipality of Pili, where the seat of the provincial government and the Pili Domestic Airport are located; and 110 kilometers away from Naga City, the heart of Bicol. Composed of 49 barangays, the municipality has a total of 134 sitios.
      
 




       Caramoan Islands were unknown to commercial tourism because of its remoteness. You will experience a bumpy ride and at least 1.5 hours boating from Sabang beach to Caramoan. Thus, its natural beauty was hidden and only few adventurers were go there. 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 to recognized the Caramoan Islands as a Philippine island destination for foreign and local tourist that gives a high percentage of visitors every year until today.

I really love how this place is in a remote area - for the purpose of preserving it's natural beauty. :)

The remoteness of a place is not a hindrance to make it know and to be the object for tourism. It takes to be explored and to be promoted. Since you've already visited Caramoan group of Islands in Camarines Sur, you're now in the best person who could promote this, could promote its naturalness, its beauty and all its amenities to you closed friends, business associates, acquaintances, among other.

I agree with Sir Gil. The remoteness of this place makes it really fascinating. Yung alam mong malinis saka tahimik. I would love to go here someday. :)

which islands did you go? Been to Caramoan in 2010 but only to 5 islands - i still trying to find time to visit the remaining five! I totally enjoyed my time there and was lucky to be there when Survivor Syria was shooting so met the crew and took pictures at the cast away place near gota!

markpogi said...

Whenever I see a post about travel, I couldn't help it but think when I could visit that place ^_^

I'm thinking if going there by December would be a good idea or not.

Shelmar said...

hi Mark, I think the best you can go there is on summer. So that you enjoy the island hopping because the weather is good.
