Hey Travel buddies!

How are you all doing? The summer heat is really on and what we are looking forward is to have our vacation or even a quick getaway to relieve from the stress at work or school. In this time of the year, I just like to be outdoors and be with nature to find inner peace. This is the last part of the travel series: Island hopping in Caramoan, Camarines Sur and what I really want to treasure in this experience is the serenity and peace the nature gives me. This is not just another summer vacation but more likely a time to relax and explore. The pride of Caramoan is the beauty of nature and up until now, only few islands are commercialized that's why if you are into nature tripping, Caramoan has a lot to offer for you. #itsmorefuninthephilippines

This is the view from the Hunongan Beach Cove. 
Hunongan island is one of the commercialized island in Caramoan and is now called Hunongan Beach Cove. I actually didn't know that it is called Hunongan Beach Cove at the time when we were here. I thought it was just Hunongan island (as the boatmen said) until I researched over the internet and found out (no big deal! just saying..haha). It is situated next to Gota Island, which is now Gota Village Resort. As far as I know, it is managed by the same people in Gota Village Resort. The people who will stay here is brought from Gota Village Resort and transferred in this island via pump boat.  

I've been on this island twice.The first time we were here is just actually to tour and see the facilities of the island and that's the time most of the pictures that you will see is taken. We were welcomed by the people from Gota Village Resort  ( I bet! it's on their shirt) to tour around the island. 

The structures of the cabanas (it's more like houses to me) here looks better than the cute nipa houses in Gota Village Resort that's why it is more costly to stay here plus you get to have more privacy because you only got few neighbors, I mean few house structures than in Gota but of course, more facilities was in Gota.

Here are just few shots from the inside of the cabanas. The truth is, we don't get to stay here overnight because grandma's home is just 30 minutes away from here that's why I don't know some things concerning the stay here but I heard some popular local artists have already been here.

Good thing, there are some improvements that I saw when we get here the second time around. The photo on the left is our second visit and on the right is the first. There is now a dining area (sorry I got no photo, it's on my back on the left photo) and a shower on the beach side. It is just getting better. I hope they continue more the improvements.

The rock formation in between Gota and Hunongan island. Regardless of the facilities and the improvements, the nature's beauty is what your money is worth.

We were lucky enough on our second visit because another built-in facility used in the shooting of the TV series Survivor was left in Hunongan island at that time. Well, they've got a lot in Gota village resort but this one is just from the recent Survivor shoot (I can't remember the country) and is still set-up in the middle of the sea. We were like,we've got to get there and pose for a shoot! We felt like Survivors. haha! 

Aside from making mermaid tail out of the sand and sandcastles that is more like a mountain, I also love writing on the sand.

That is all for now. I hope you enjoyed looking through the travel series with me. Philippines is truly blessed with nature's beauty. Till my next travel adventure. See you around!

Let's talk again on my next blog.
Yes, YOU lovely gorgeous.

Love yourself because you are beautiful.

Hugs and Kisses,
