Lahos Island is named after a unique phenomenon that happens every high tide -- the white sand disappears -- but this little island off the Caramoan Peninsula has more to offer other than its interesting etymology.
Unlike other islands settled in the Caramoan Peninsula, Lahos is a little rarity — small, almost deserted, and the only thing you’ll hear is the crashing sound of the waves as they splash to the shore. Despite its quaintness, Lahos bears a beauty — think of superfine white sand that feels like powder to the feet, crystal clear waters, and stunning rock formations — that give Boracay a run for their money. Not only is this picture Instagram-worthy, it also offers tourists a chance to swim in its gentle waters, go scuba diving, or see more underwater treats while snorkeling.
Lahos Island is located in the Caramoan Peninsula, Camarines Sur.
