Add a Point to the Map

Caramoan is a town on the Philippines island of Luzon. The town is also the jumping point for the Caramoan Peninsula, which offers stunning little limestone islands with perfect beaches.

Island hopping in the Caramoan Peninsula

When they say go "island hopping," that meant visiting the beautiful islands and isles using a powered outrigger canoe of the Caramoan Peninsula, chartered for about US$26/day. Caramoan is both a town and a region, but it also points to the islands sorrounding Caramoan. Bring your swimming trunk, bikinis, body board, swim vests, etc, along and have food or drinks catered over. You will need a minimum of two full days to really see and enjoy this place.
