Must visit! Very fine sand and clean water. Great for kids and adults alike. You can buy buko (young coconut) here. For those daring to climb, it has cliff with a lagoon and spectacular view.

Far & remote place but it was worth it for me & my family. Loved it there & we're hoping to come back again & again. Wide sand bar, great for snorkling!

Hi there, i havent heard that you can camp overnight in matukad, the island is just small, the only thing that you can enjoy is the hidden lagoon. But the beach is phenomenal.
