Caramoan is a town on the Caramoan Peninsula, Camarines Sur province in Bicol, Philippines.
Dubbed as the province’s ‘Hidden Paradise,” the Caramoan Peninsula has gained tourism popularity in recent years due to its rugged landscape and stunning coastal scenery. And following the media coverage on the peninsula in various news and local television programs, local and foreign travellers started to explore the beaches of the peninsula. Caramoan is now listed in the National Parks of the Philippines.
Popular tourist destinations in the peninsula are the Caramoan National Park, the Centro, and Gota Beach, the latter hugely popular due to its fine white sand beach. Activities for visitors include diving, swimming, snorkelling, spelunking and forest hiking. The 8th season of Koh-Lanta (French edition of Survivor), was shot entirely in Caramoan. The TV director Corinne Vaillant was reportedly impressed with Gota’s “powdery sand, the coconuts on Gota beach and the neighbouring islets,” and the lush tropical forest.
