Since we were not able to meet the minimum of 20 persons for a daytour, we weren't able to taste their buffet lunch. For daytour, you really are getting what you are paying for..

Beautiful place to unwind with the beautiful beach and appreciate the sand and crystal clear blue water. Indeed this island is a must visit. It is also easy access. after you swim with the whale shark you can proceed here. Boat costs P1,500 good for 1-4 persons.

Absolutely beautiful beach with crystal clear waters. This is a private island and only 50 yards of beach is available to the public. There is no shade and no beverages or food available. Private security blocks entrance to the interior.

Amazing island where you can float-all-you-can! (Oslob's sea water has high salt content) Mother nature's wonderful creation!
