There are many options to explore the island either to rent a car, multi cab and even motorcycles. Originally we planned to rent a motorcycle so we can visit the places we wanted to visit.

But when we are there, we ended –up to hire a multi cab for the group.  They offer the best deal for tourist like us.  One interesting thing about this island is every year Camotes Island tempts many travellers to its shores, unique cave and otherworldly landscapes. Do you really know about these fascinating islands? Read our Top 5 places!

*Santiago Beach is one of the main attractions of the island. This place is the first stop over where you can order your favorite sea food with affordable prices. It is known to its powdery sand and widely beautiful shoreline.

You will discover yourself strolling along the powdery sand and take a rest to its Nipa hut near the shoreline when you get tired. This is a beautiful place where you can discover both nature and beach.

*Buho Rock for me is a MUST visit place in Camotes Island.  It is a coral rock shaped like a small ship docked at a port in one of the cliffs of the Western Poblacion. According to the friendly staff this is an abandoned resort and the Local Government takeover to maintain the resort.

One of the highlights of this place is to try the 15-20 feet high cliff jump. Most of the visitors, well! try this. I’m not a good swimmer but I have a lot of guts to try this, beside life vest are available hahaha. I’ve always been into extreme sports. I live for that adrenaline rush. It’s a way of proving to yourself and others that you can overcome you fears.

a MUST try!

With so much activity yet little time to spare, we bid our goodbye to this beautiful place. If we have a chance to come back we will stay here for a day.

*Timubo Cave  is like a book that you can’t judge from a distance, though the entrance does not look amazing but when you get there!! It’s definitely worth a visit. The place is so enchanting, a very enticing water will surprise you.

The water is clear and not salty it does even have a distinct smell, I’m a bit wonder where this water came from. Well the water is so inviting and all of us tried and took some photos. We had a great time in this place as we are the only group when we arrived, perfect time to explore and enjoy the area.

*Lake Danao Park is a perfect side trip after an exhilarating activity in Buho Rock and Timubo Cave. The place offers Kayaking activity that cost of 50php per 30minutes. Since were bit tired we just simply took some photos, breath some fresh air and enjoyed the cool ambiance of the place.

Some would stay for a day in this Island because of limited time at the same time of the budget constraint. If I have a lot of time and money, I will stay here at least one week because I believe no matter how long you stay here you’ll never get tired of the beauty of the place has to offer. In some places maybe it’s a different story, but once you made you travel to the beautiful beach. Its definitely worth it.

beach body! aw!

beach body! aw!

The island has a lot of hidden wonderful spots you can discover and this is only 5 of them! One day was never enough, but we’ll be sure to come back again to continue our exploration to this island. You can truly say “I left my heart in Mangodlong Rock”.
