Caramoan? Where in the world is this place? It is actually an island, many remote islands in the province of Camarines Sur. The foreign TV series “Survivor USA” was filmed here, causing a huge impact to tourism and local livelihood. And yep, I made it to this place along with four super gorgeous ladies last 2014, a few months before my wedding. 


I was just invited to join this trip. The plan was originally made by my friend Joy and her friends. And given the time and budget, I would never say no to travel.


Travel time? It was long but smooth. A total of almost 3 hours from Manila to the resort.


40 minute plane ride from Manila to Virac, an hour of motorcycle ride from Virac proper to Codon port in Sabang and another hour boat ride going to Tugawe Cove Resort – what? Was it worth it? A big YES to that.


We opt to get the 15,000php/5pax with free breakfast. It was a great deal as we get to enjoy not just pure nature but also the good foods. For those looking for a place to meditate or maybe a romantic getaway, Tugawe Cove Resort is the perfect choice.




The 5 of us were all in one cottage. We separate ourselves in these 2 master beds. Hey look at these two lovebirds, ain’t that the sweetest welcome?


Nature at its finest – this is how I would describe the resort. Rooms are very well maintained, the beach side is very clean, water is so clear and resort staff are all very friendly. Please someone tell me we found a piece of heaven here.


This infinity pool overlooking the wide ocean is like the cherry on top of the ice cream – it stole my entire heart and soul, I swear. It was so unreal to be here.


Where does your 3,000php take you? Just picture all of the above + an island hopping tour.
