I recommend this attraction highly for some relaxation and amazing views. A great narrow but long sandbar .It's a great spot to just enjoy the beautiful white powder sandbar and collect amazing shells. One side is the ocean and the other is the bay. I also got to be part of a sunset yoga group and it was a total... More

We spent a couple hours here in the afternoon and it was pretty amazing. The water is so blue and the white sand makes for great scenery and photos. We didn't find a good snorkel spot on the island so maybe just skip that part, swimming is good but the water is shallow. A must see if your in Camiguin!

To rent a boat over there is a base rate of 450php. There are lot of stands close by that offer snorkels for rent for 50php. We got some but didn't use them as the snorkel area was not great. The boats bring you and wait for you until you are ready to leave. They offer umbrellas and sun mats... More

One of the biggest and beautiful sandbars in the Philippines. This is the main reason why people flock Camiguin. There is no shade in the island so bring skin protection.

Don't miss this, seriously. Take a boat near sunset time and a couple of beers (but make sure to take your trash with you). The sunset from here is simply breathtaking. If you come a little early you can also snorkel around the island.

A great little tourist trap for you to get a view of Camiguin. The beach was white and the was water blue. There were only a few couples there while we visited and seemed to have unlimited access by ourselves to the entire beach. A place to see!

It is a bit expensive to get there, pay boat and taxes, but this time of the trip you should be already used to how much they like your money here. White Island is just a deserted beach, which depending on how lucky you are, you might get the whole beach for yourself or be in the middle of salou... More

Good place to meet sunset, but better not to go there in noon - there is no place to hide unless you take something with you. Good news: you can buy cold beer / water there. Actually, it is good place for snorkeling and photo of sunset above Hibok-Hibok. As usually in the Philippines, we paid all possible tickets and... More

We stayed at Camiguin White Island Beach Resort which is located just one straight stretch from the White Island. Even from afar, you can see that the island is peaceful and clean. The Resort arranged us for a tour on the island worth P500 (including goggles and life vest). Travel time is around 5-10 minutes from mainland. There is no... More
