Located in Mambajao, Camiguin you can cross this island in 7minutes via motorboat. It's a long stretch of sandbar and best time to go is on the morning. Umbrellas and mats are available for rent. Don't stay so late as strong currents occur and might be having high tides. You can bring your food but of course be responsible. There... More

The place was just so white and has clear water. If going late bring an umbrella because there is no green or brown in the area. No where to take cover from the heat of the sun. Beach umbrellas are available for rent also food and drinks are available to buy.

Very pristine sandbar. Unadulterated beauty. For one to experience the serenity of the place, be there on the boat early, in our case 5:15am,sunrise will be there for a show. It's just few minutes boat ride. There are vendors selling very affordable meals in the island so there is no need to bring your kitchen! They also serve coffee. Just... More

It 's a shot boat ride to the island that cost 450 pesos...and they will wait for u. Sand is white but not as fine...water is fine but there little sharp rocks that make the wading not so good. But the sand bar is great for picture taking. The locals sell some drinks and there are huts for rent. Huts... More

I wanted to stay there forever. Yes, be ready for this once you are there. Even no trees or plants, you might become speechless. Just enjoy. White Island - difficult to explain. I love it.

Get to the Island at sunrise or before 06.00am and make sure you get an umbrella and table for some shade. Snorkel in the lagoon or swim on the reef is unspoilt and very clean. Its obvious they clean the sand bar. The no plastic no garbage no smoking policy is a big YES for this pristine island. Security is... More

The tiny island with only sand, no trees or plants, was a lovely place to walk or swim. The ride to the island on an outrigger, was fun, too.

The name White Island is the perfect name for this island :) The white sand beach and clear waters, wow, just amazing! I especially LOVE the view looking back to the main island of Camiguin. Hibok-Hibok volcano is in plain sight with just enough clouds to cover it makes it look like it's a post card! The pictures does not... More

It was my 2nd time around, the island was still as beautiful with it's clear waters. The additional item now is that you can rent a big umbrella with chairs so that you can stay longer even with the glaring sun. This was the highlight of our tour.

450 peso's for a boat that will carry max 6 persons and 20 peso per head for the environmental fee will get you over to the tranquil white island. Great for snokelling at the far end although the water is cold and there are jelly fish. The banded sea krates are thriveing here and its a great place to get... More
