Caramoan, Philippines – Is Caramoan The Secret Paradise?

Caramoan is known as the secret paradise in the Philippines, a place that not many people hear about or know where it is.

Most people instead tend to crowd to the nearby Borcacay, leaving Caramoan in the corner – perfect for those looking for a paradise just for themselves off the beaten track…

It started getting some attention a few years ago when the French Survivor TV show started shooting there, and this year the Israel Survivor show will also be using the same location.

The reason why these islands are such a popular shooting location for Survivor is because they want their contestants to feel like they are really far away from civilization – which is easily achieved here – it’s a wild paradise virtually untouched.

    I have to admit, there were too many people for me to really hear what was going on during the tour. If I make it back to philippines someday, I might have to give it another go.
