Caramoan is a group of islands and islets scattered in the Pacific Ocean and belong to the province of Camarines Sur. It is endowed by nature with its beautiful beaches and limestone cliffs, lagoons, caves and rich flora and fauna. It is also very well preserved by its seclusion. In recent years, it has gained popularity because of the hit TV series Survivor which has made the islands a favorite host to its shows. To date, 10 Survivor seasons have been shot in the islands by Serbian, Israeli, Bulgarian, Swedish, French, Indian and American franchises of the show.
Caramoan stands proud as a tourism gem of Bicolandia with its white sand beaches and a host of attractions perfect for an island adventure full of diverse activities from swimming to kayaking, to scuba diving and rock climbing. Enjoy island and beach hopping around the Caramoan group of islands from Sabitang Laya, Manlawig Sandbar, Cotivas, Lahuy, Gota, Lahus, Matukad, Pitogo, Minalahos, Hunongan, Tinago, Haponan, and Basod. Swim or snorkel at the pristine beaches of these islands as you hop from one to the other. Try spelunking at the Culapnit Cave or mountain trekking at Mt. Caglago. Its summit will allow you a 360° view of the islands and the giant statue of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Mother of Peace.
The best time to visit Caramoan is during the dry months of November to May. If you intend to go camping, make sure to camp on an island that has not been rented by the Survivor series for 25 years beginning 2008.
