Lahos Island

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.


Opening Days and Hours
