Those who visit Camiguin wouldn’t want to miss this place and cross the blue seawater to visit this beautiful white sand bar... just a short boat-ride from the white island port (boat has a max. capacity of 6 persons) Some would say that it’s best...More

It’s really an island paradise. I so fell in love with the crystal clear water, white sand and the scenery is so picture perfect! I wish to come back soon with my kids. An experience of a life time.

I've been to many different islands in many different parts of the Philippines but they're nothing like the White Island in Camiguin. True it's just a strip of white sand but there's something so serene about the place that it gives you a sense of...More

Another beautiful sandbar on another great day out. As always wish a little more care was taken of these treasures but well worth a visit.

If you only have to visit one place in Camiguin, this place is it! The sand is white coral sand, the water clear, and impressive view of Mount Hibok hibok. Best time to go here is around 3:30PM, and wait until sunset at about 5:30PM....More

With a crystal water and a very inviting sand, this Island is a much see and visit place in Camiguin. With just a less than 30 mins boat ride with a bit of wavy sea, yet it is worth sailing for.

Yes you have to pay for the whole boat even if you're all by yourself. One option is to join with other groups and split the cost with other people.

Yes, via pump boat. Nice place to see sunrise or sunset, otherwise just a sandbar. Watch for the currents if you swim there.
