Lahuy Island

Camarines Sur has been blessed with many beautiful islands that appeal to the adventurer's spirit, one of which, Lahuy Island, offers a paradise of long, white beaches and lush greenery surrounded by the endless azure sea.

Lahuy Island is a 10-kilometer long island about 3 kilometers at its widest point. The island has long stretches of exquisitely white fine sand. Barangay Gota has been known as a gold-mining community even before the war. At present, only small-scale operation is in existence. At Sitio Nipa, a spring 300 meters from the shore provides a fresh water source not available elsewhere. A 40-hectare mangrove swamp near Barangay Oring offers a habitat for a marine wildlife.

Location

The Island is located in the town of Caramoan in the province of Camarines Sur in the Bicol Region.
