Even by looking at the map, it’s easy to tell that Lahos Island is quite a beauty. Its main beach is spread across the island, reaching both the eastern and western sides, while sandwiched by massive rock formations to the north and south. Lahos Island is part of the Caramoan National Park, making it a protected area.
