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

Sand is white and the water is crystal clear..Wow! U need to visit this sandbar island inorder to appreciate its beauty. Just come in your swimming attire & the island is yours. We had breakfast here and it was soooo cheap. Take pictures to your hearts content. Just a perfect island with the mountain volcano as your backdrop.

This little island is the perfect place to relax and reflect. Wonderfull white sand with very little people! Best to reach is if you make a drift dive which ends close to the whithe sand bar

Brilliant well worth a visit - even a bar there and snacks - reached by a small boat ride from the main Island if it's a hot day take plenty of sun block.

Go in the morning to avoid the hot sun since there are no shade trees around. Bring lotion or a hot since there are literally no shades to shield you from the sun. Very beautiful view.

We arrived Camiguin and stayed at Puerto De Sol whish is in walking distance from the port where you get the pump boats going to White Island. We left the port at 4:30PM and it is just a 10 min ride to the island. The cost was P495 and it was a private ride for us. The boat waits for... More

This is a c-shaped sandbar. And this is paradise. We came in during the off-season, and we literally had the island to ourselves. Imagine clear waters, white sand (though not as fine in Boracay), bright sun, blue skies and a nice view of the Camiguin island. In short, paradise. You have to pay 450 pesos for a boat to take...
