Matukad Island, Caramoan

A perfect stop on an island-hopping adventure, Matukad Island offers swimming in crystal-clear seawater, basking on beaches of fine white sand, and sipping from fresh coconuts. Scramble up rocks with vegetation to view a legend-shrouded lagoon full of milkfish. For the more adventurous, the island's tropical forest hides orchids, other wild plants, and a small lake at the center. If you like snorkeling, more wonders await around the coral reefs. If you plan to explore the island, wear good shoes as sharp stones abound.

  • Island with a small Lagoon in the middle. After a crazy climb you can make some awesome pictures...
  • Beautiful!
  • The best in the Caramoan group of islands with its ultra-fine, powdery white sand beach. You can set-up camp for the night but make sure the tents are away from the beach. Sea snakes crawl on shore at night to lay eggs.
  • Powdery white sands, tortuose blue waters plus a little bit of rock climbing to see the enchanted bangus (fish). This place is purely paradise.
  • Amazing island in Caramoan water is clear sand is prestine the view is fantastic.
