Excited to explore the things to do in Camarines Sur? Located in the Bicol region of Luzon, Camarines Sur has always been a go-to destination for both locals and foreigners alike. With its numerous beaches, forests and more – you’re never going to run out of things to do or places to go. Check out our recommended activities:
Not a lot has been said about Nalalata Falls, which probably makes it one of the most underrated Camarines tourist spots. Even then, it shouldn’t take away from the fact that after a quick 15-minute trek, visitors are greeted with a gorgeous waterfall that has cool and turquoise waters.
While a fairly quick trek, it’s best that you go with a guide – especially if you plan on rappelling.
From the forest’s entrance, it’s a 15-minute walk to the basin of the waterfall, another 10 minutes up the waterfall – to which the jump-off point for rappelling is 50 feet high.
Lahos Island has two white sand beaches, one of which is enclosed between jagged, limestone formations. While popularly known as one of the sites where reality TV series, “Survivor” shot some of its scenes, it is also known for its abundance of coral snakes.
Also abundant are natural minerals such as iron and manganese, which is why it was formerly a popular mining destination. Nowadays, it is part of a protected area and the Caramoan National Park.
Considered one of the smaller islands in Caramoan, Matukad island is not only known for its powdery, white sand but also for its myth about its giant milkfish.
Legend has it that there used to be two of them, until one was caught and eaten by a family – shortly after, they all died. Since then, no one’s gone eaten, let alone gone fishing in the area.
If you are a devotee, then you won’t be swayed by the over 500 steps you’ll have to climb to make it up to the “Our Lady of Peace” grotto atop Caglago Mountain.
The current 26-foot image of the Blessed Virgin Mary is the second statue after the first was severely damaged by a typhoon in 1998 and a lightning strike in 1999.
Just 30 minutes away from Naga City, the Mt. Isarog National Park is perfect for nature lovers, the national park is home to Malabsay Falls, Nabuntulan Falls and the “Secret Falls” – which entails a longer trek to get to.
You can also visit the Sulat Pool and the Panicuason Hot Springs if you need to cool down.
Perfect for water babies and thrill seekers, the CamSur Watersports Comlex is the country’s first world-class water sports complex.
It’s become the go-to for beginners and professionals alike for wake boarding, kneeboarding, water skiing, wake skating and more.
The water complex also entails several obstacle courses, offers free use of basic water equipment and safety instruction from resident instructors.
Another thing on our list of things to do in Camarines Sur is visit the Bombon Parish. No ones know much about the church except that it was first built by a missionary named Fray dela Torre, and was finished by Rev. Fr. Jose Ribaya.
Stories go on to say that the belfry had begun to lean during its construction, which made locals want to tear it down. However, the parish priest insisted that they complete its construction – hence, the Bombon belfry being compared to the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
