Summer’s here! Caramoan is the new place to explore. Come and experience its pristine beauty.
The Caramoan Peninsula is located in the Province of Camarines Sur in the Bicol Region. It’s been said that Caramoan is better than Phuket or Boracay…but you be the judge when you visit yourself! Although there are more tourists coming here, Filipinos and foreigners alike, compared to Palawan, Boracay and Phuket, Caramoan is still quite unknown to the traveling community AND is slowly being discovered. Caramoan is known for its white powdery sands and many people like to travel here coz there are not many tourists here yet. Survivor France has filmed their show here in 2008, Survivor Israel is currently filming and Survivor Bulgaria might film their show here in June 2009.

Camarines Sur recently became popular because of a watersports center, my friends and I decided to explore a different part of the region, the Caramoan peninsula. Going to Caramoan is quite tiresome, since one needs to take a long bus ride or a plane trip to Naga City, a shuttle to the town of Sabang, and almost two hours’ boat ride to the final stop.
Because Caramoan is not (yet) a commercialized travel spot, there is no single resort in the area. There are, however, a couple of pension houses and a few homestays in the town center or the Sentro. Good thing I was able to reserve slots in the place of Tita Felly (BC Hometel) before we left Manila, since most homestays in the area were already jam-packed. Prices of homestays start at 150 pesos per head per night, depending on the facilities (e.g. aircon) and haggling skills. more…

The small town of Caramoan was then located at the tip of Caramoan Peninsula, a rugged place of land extending into the waters of the Maqueda Channel on the North and East and Lagonoy Gulf on the South.
Caramoan Island has been officially adapted since 1619, the year it was founded by a zealous missionary, the venerable Spanish friar Francisco De La Cruz Y Oropesa. This 60-year old priest penetrated the thick virgin forest of the Caramoan Peninsula and found a small settlement in a place called Baluarte. Later on, this settlement was turned over to the administration of the Holy Bishopric in 1696.
