Clear water surrounds this white sand. No trees but the white sand. What makes it picturesque is the surrounding. From there you can see the old Mt. Hibok-hibok. It looks like a grandiose castle on top. The big rock formation creates the beauty. The best view can only be seen in this white island.

It is so beautiful especially seeing it in a birds eye view. It is just in front of our hotel and I am so amaze seeing the people standing on that small white island. My friends and I went there in mid-afternoon where only few were there so that we can solo at least the place but it was a... More

White island is perfect for friends vacation. It is recommended to visit the island very early to prevent less crowd. You can bring your own foods at the island, or you can order seafoods and barbeques at the stalls in the island. Beach umbrellas are also available for rent since there are no trees or shades at all in the... More

This is actually a large sand bar that gives an amazing profile view of Camiguin island. The water around it is shallow and crystal clear and great for swimming and frolicking.

We spent almost an hour in this tiny beautiful island. No trees, just plain clean, white sand that shines even from afar in the morning! While in there, you can have an excellent view of the Camiguin Island and the cloud covered mountains. Since me and my friends love to take pictures, we took A LOT of Pictures!

Beautiful although a bit dangerous since we saw about 2 sea snakes during our snorkling. I still want to go back though because it was breathtaking

The island is considered to be one of the main attractions for Camiguin, and if you want real sand you will need to go here. However, we went on a poor weather day, and even despite that, its was like peak hour. There is some coral to be seen, and the water is clear, apart from that, there is little... More

White island is a large sandbar about 10mins bangkar boat ride from the beach. The island itself is bare, there is no cover and you wouldn't want to spend much more than an hour there. The water is clear blue and the sand is lovely, but theres not much to do after you've had a 30min swim and a lie... More
