Matukad Island has one of the best beach in Caramoan. It is where you will be able to find the Enchanted Lagoon too. :) You need to climb tho but once you reach the top, the view is definitely wonderful! Caramoan is love :)

Best island near Tugawe. Sand was very fine and white. There is a mini hiking part to view 2 large bangus. There is also a rock formation where you can take great pictures of.

was able to just do some picture taking after our boat guide talked security into letting us. Otherwise would've been unable to. Not for swimming lots of jelly fish. Nature untouched.

It was a bit crowded with tourists when we visited. The rock formations were beautiful, though. Swimming here will be difficult during the low tide because of the corals.

You should search for DIY trips. I suggest you plan ahead and visit during summer since the waves are very large during rainy season.

Hi, I am not sure how far, i believe tugawe cove has a different path when you arrive in the island.

Hi there, i havent heard that you can camp overnight in matukad, the island is just small, the only thing that you can enjoy is the hidden lagoon. But the beach is phenomenal.
