The 25th season of CBS Survivor has been announced, it’s location – Philippines! Caramoan Islands in the Philippines is the new location of CBS Survivor series, exact location is said to be in Gota Beach. It’s in the Bicol Region, and if you are a Filipino living in the Philippines you know just how harsh the elements can be and how many raging typhoons passes by that area each year wreaking havoc, casualties and loss lives, and destructions on its path.
These players will be tested not only by the show’s challenges as they battle for immunity but as they face the wildness and harshness of the Caramoan Peninsula.
But despite the harsh conditions, Caramoan is simply a beautiful place with white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. The area is a tropical paradise and fast becoming a top travel and tourism destination in the Philippines especially now that Caramoan is widely known, thanks in part to the CBS Survivor shooting in the peninsula.
If you are going for a holiday and vacation in Caramoan, a recommended adventure side trips are whale watching in Donsol, Sorsogon and trying out wakeboarding in the CamSur Wakeboarding Complex (CWC) in Naga City.
