CARAMOAN, part four : Forget Gota Beach, Go Straight to HUNONGAN COVE!!!

Gota Beach gained fame earlier this year
as the main location of Survivor : France.

The French who outwitted, outlasted, and outplayed
each other have long gone,

and the production has left behind
some rather unattractive pre-fab beach houses,

which Pres. GMA typically enjoyed and approved
during her visit to the peninsula.

These structures now cost visitors P3,000 per night,
and P300 per person "landing fee" for a day trip.

Totally NOT worth it,
so we quickly skedaddled out of there!

our motherly tour guide Eva (and her husband Adam)
instructed our boatmen to take us to Hunongan,

a secluded cove where the first resort in Caramoan
is scheduled to open later this year.

It's a pretty small beach;
very private, very beautiful.

And when these luxury Bahay Kubos are completed,
I imagine the rates here will be at Amanpulo levels.

We were already amazed at the
elegance of this tiny cove,

but Hunongan was a mere teaser for
the real jewels of Caramoan:

And so we set sail once again,
this time, towards the sister islands:

Lahus and Matukad!!!
