Exploring CamSur: Caramoan Diaries


Caramoan has been home to the worldwide phenomenal hit TV show franchised “Survivor”. Located at the eastern part of the Philippines and surrounded by Philippine Sea. It is approximately 500 kms away from Manila and 95 kms away from Pili, the heart of Bicol region. 

Bounded by various islands, Caramoan is an ideal place for island-hopping and snorkeling. With its pristine and powdery white sand beaches, you can almost feel like you’re at the famous island of Boracay. You can also experience rock climbing, where you can see the famous ‘Magical Bangus’ of Caramoan. There’s also a spectacular lighthouse erected on a grassy hill of Guinahoan Island.

      It’s a story of 2 bangus located at Matukad Island. Then yung isang bangus hinuli at kinain ng isang mangingisda. Then after that, nobody knew what happened to him kaya wala ng nagtangkang huliin siya. Kaya they call it the ‘Magical Bangus’ of Caramoan. 😊


  2. How do u get to the islands? Did you travel by land or by boat? Tnx po
