DUROKOY ISLAND, CAMARINES SUR, PHILIPPINES
Updated: Sep 29, 2022
Dreaming of experiencing being cast away but afraid of getting isolated? Durokoy Island is a perfect place for you. It only takes 20 minutes away from the mainland to reach this tiny island located north of Salvacion, Siruma, Camarines Sur, and halfway to Botawanan Island.
A group with a maximum number of 50 persons could fit on this island for a whole day, overnight, or a few days camping.
This island is a perfect choice for your dream of enjoying in isolation for a moment because it is small, elevated, and shaded with full-grown trees and coconut palms. Excursionists would enjoy an outdoor activity without getting burnt by the searing sunlight.
You can do the traditional outdoor grilling or cooking under the trees and experience living back the time without using stoves and electric lights at night. Feel the soft ocean breeze while swinging on your cradle, and hear the splashing sounds of the waves as they bang into the rocks ashore. The squawking wild docks and ocean birds will complete nature’s props to feel the real core of an island escapade.
You don’t need to worry about a feared sudden surge of the waves or even the normal high tides because the island is a small mountain island.
