Matukad Island’s pink-white powder fine beach, Caramoan Peninsula, Camarines Sur
It’s been one long journey to and fro, but to be able to see this gem of place was worthy enough for a holy week adventure. Caramoan Peninsula has the qualities of El Nido, my friend who was able to visit the place says, but on a smaller scale. It has numerous stretches of white sand beaches and a couple of them that can rival that of Boracay’s, less the annoying crowd and establishments, and it has caves and an underground river that can compare to Cagayan but on a smaller scale as well. Combined though this is one eco-adventure destination worth a visit.
Still there are some concerns I noticed within the place that could easily destroy it’s hidden charm, like the rampant dynamite fishing that we ourselves witnessed and a “Tourist Trap” lodging that I would go into detail later.
Lastly, I think I won’t travel that long a distance for now. Or better yet I won’t travel by land during holy week because of the traffic! On what should have been a 12 hours journey by land and sea was stretched to 15 hours! Arggh!
