Guinahoan Island, also known as Basot Island, is located northeast of Manlawi Island and Cotivas Island. It is grassland surrounded by a shallow mangrove bay on the west and isolated white-sand beach coves to the east.

It will take a short trek to go to its top. But the walk is worth it to have a scenic view around including a sneak peak of the Cotivas Island. You’ll get to experience too climbing up the light house if you can.

One more unforgettable experience in this island is the locals. Some of the islands in Caramoan Peninsula have settlers. They are most welcoming and friendly. In Guinahoan Island, there are many children around willing to entertain you, and most of them are less fortunate.

Some volunteer groups have done charity mission here such as giving them books, clothes, school supplies and foods. If you’ll happen to visit Caramoan Peninsula, please try to bring some goods for these children.

May you receive your blessings,
