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.
