Gota Village [Watery & Outdoor Wednesday]

@ mirandablue
Gota is a small cove in the Caramoan peninsula with two white sandy beaches separated by a small limestone hill.  The provincial government of Camarines Sur developed an ecovillage here and turned it into a resort.  This hidden paradise is now an ecotourism destination after international franchises of Survivor were shot here.  The 8th season of Koh-Lanta (French edition of Survivor) was shot entirely here. This was also the set of the Serbian version for two consecutive years, three seasons of Survivor-Israel and the Bulgarian version filmed their 4th season here last year.   The natural diversity and exotic adventure in this place are exciting and enthralling.  You can really get lost in the wilderness of Gota.

Gota Village was closed to the public when we visited Caramoan in April.  The top photo is a small uninhabited limestone island across Gota while the photo below is Gota's west side beach.  I took the last photo while cruising in an outrigger boat.
