This is a stopover on the Short Boat Trip itinerary. Regulated cost of 1500 pesos per boat paid for at the Tourism Desk on Paniman beach.
Clean sand, clear water, coral rock formations it really is a scenic spot for pics. One beach has calm water which is where you drop anchor whilst the other shorter beach can be quite choppy.
Probably okay as a lunch stop but finding any shade will be dependent on when you visit.

A beautiful beach, almost 35 minutes boat “Bangka” ride from the Tugawe cove resort where we stayed. A lush green small island with two white sand beaches. The sand is fine like powder. Very smooth. Not a good snorkelling point though, good for swimming. One can take very good photographs for remembrance.

Our first island stop was at Lahos Island. White sand & clear water. Wow! Such a lovely place indeed! The wave was pretty big but it looked like a fun place for swimming. Loved the twin beaches.

The first island that I visited during my first trip to Caramoan was Lahos. When I returned two months after, Lahos was closed to the public for the shooting of a local television series. The island is uninhabited and does not have commercial establishment nor cottages.

At each end of Lahos Island stands a towering limestone wall. In the middle, as if cutting through the island is a sandy beach, about 50 meters across. The beach itself has no shade. You can have a respite from the sun using the shade cast by the rock formations. The beach has two shores, one at the eastern side (about 25 meters wide) of the island, the other at the west (about 100 meters wide). Its sand is ivory-ish in color and is not very powdery. The waves at the eastern side were calmer than in the west. The water is clear and pristine. There were coral reefs near the west beach but I did not get the chance to snorkel there (largely because I was exhausted from the trip to Caramoan).

While on the island, my guide pointed to a distant island and informed that it was Cantaduanes. He added that Catanduanes is about four hours away from Caramoan by boat.

Lahos Island has a centre sand bar which is most prominent during the low tide and allows you to swim on both shores. It is flanked by two craggy limestone hills not meant for climbing. The sand is whitish/ cream, not powder fine but more like crushed shells.
Lahos Island is small, ideal for photography and swimming. I can’t say there is much to see with snorkeling although I never did look to see if there were corals on the deeper end.

Lahos Island is the first island we went in our island hopping. Waves were strong! Maybe because it is between two "islands". We climb up the top and you could see the view from below. The water was nice too :) Worth it climb even if it was a struggle.

It is a long drive but it is worth it. I didn't bother really with memorizing the names of the places we went to, but I asked why it's called this and that.. I didn't bother cos everything was just perfect. 💛 it is like going to El nido. I have included the place where I stayed at and also matukad.

This might be remote but you won't regret travelling this place. This is a place where you will find solemnity. Just make it sure you have all the stuff when it comes to food and utensils since there is jo nearby store you can always count on. But if you just love to take a dip on the sea. This is the complete package.

The actual traveling via land from Manila to Caramoan was a struggle, but then when I witnessed the unspoiled beauty of this island all my struggles paid off actually they have a lot of magnificent islands but it's too many to mentions actually this reviews is for the totality of Caramoan island .
