THE BEST!!! I've been around Cebu, island hopping and this is the best beach i've seen ever. The water is so crystal clear, fine sand and amazing view in front it. It would be best to come in a group because the boat going there is a little pricey specialy for us Filipinos but it's worth it.

Came here straight after snorkeling with the Whale Sharks. Moderately priced for a day trip (1500 php each, I believe). Food was provided, but drinks were extra. Has two beach areas, but only one suitable for swimming. The hiking trail around the island is short, but provides some great views. The infinity pool is also quite nice.

A typical Philippine Island....powdery white sand, clear waters, glorious sun meeting the sky, moonlight reflecting in the waters. One can swim and frolick in the beach all the long. What makes the stay worthy is the service provided by Sumilon Bluewater Resort. Their staff are so friendly and accommodating, their cottages are clean and I love there bathroom...so spacious. One...

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.. Use of infinity pool, plated or buffet lunch, trekking around the island, billiards, 1 round of iced tea, enjoy the top of the lighthouse, use of... More

Our hotel in Oslob recommended a day trip to this little island. The hotel arranged the boat to take us there. The ride was about 20 minutes. There were only two of us on the boat. Price: ₱1500 for transportation. We were told that this price was good for 5 people, then it's ₱2000 for 6 to 10 people. There... More

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.
