A must place to see in Camiguin, one of the very few good spot to sit back and relax under the sun, but gets a little bit crowded as the sun comes up. Directions: From Mambajao it's easy to get there, you have to ride a tricycle cab (P10.00/Person) to get to Brgy. Yumbing where the Ferry Terminal is located,... More

Camiguin is our favorite escapade. We always go here every year since 2007 except for 2010. I always worried that the white island will become smaller but it withstand the time even how many storm has already passes the country. It will become too hot so go there either morning or late afternoon. The water is clean and pristine, the... More

Be there the earliest if you can, around 5am, the Island can be crowded especially on-peak season. You can bring your own food as the food sold in the island are much pricier.

Honestly I have seen better sandbars and beaches in the Philippines. One of the best sandbars I think is Kalanggaman Island in Palompon, Leyte however White Island in Camiguin has a different feel. You get to enjoy a really nice view of Camiguin from the island. You have to go there the earliest possible. Boat trips from Paras Hotel to... More

First in our itinerary when we visited Camiguin. Locals and some reviews suggested to go there early in the morning, so we did. And it was a good start of our tour. Since we were there early we get to solo some certain areas in the island for picture takings. It is one of the best places I have been... More

White island is a pocket of white sand that appears during low tide, and has the cleanest water and whitest sand imaginable. One gets there using a motorised banca, and can stay for maybe an hour or so before the tide comes in. It's just so pristine and the view of the sea stretching out ahead is marvellous, and while...

You'll enjoy this sand bar being the only white sand beach in Camiguin. There are no concrete structure there as the sand bar is submerged when it is high tide. Visitors have to leave it before 5pm and stay at their hotels in the main island because there is no electricity at the sand bar. It is best to go... More

This is best visited in the early morning or later in the afternoon as there is no shade. The water is clear and warm. Take lots of pictures and enjoy the view of Camiguin.

This was a very nice place to spend an hour relaxing, the view back to Camiguin is stunning. We got some of our best photos here. Definitely worth the visit, we found another tourist to share the boat fare. Our cottage on Camiguin had a view to White Island so was great to see it close.
