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.

A must-visit place in Southern Philippines. White Island located in Camiguin, Philippines is worth the travel time. Can be reached via air or sea. Calm and clear water. Kids and adults will enjoy swimming and snorkeling. During summer months, there is a small store where umbrellas can be rented. Food is available during these months as well for a fair... More

Great place to visit. Beautiful. It is an area of white sand a short way away from the main island of Camuigin (might have spelt that wrong but I am only a humble Englishman). Well worth a visit. You just ask a man in a small boat to take you over there, and bring you back at a time you... More

We originally planned to visit the island late in the afternoon for the sunset, however, we arrived late so we were not accommodated. We woke up early the next day and went off at around 630 AM. The sandbar was a crescent-shaped piece of paradise. Mt Hibok-Hibok as its background made it more amazing. Be sure to try live sea... More

We're pleased we went to White Island but in all honesty there's very little to do once you're there apart from to admire the view. The sea water smelt a bit foul due to rotting seaweed which spoilt the ambience somewhat. Due to the prevailing current across the bow shaped sand bar one side tends to become a little stagnant...

God always has His own way to craft nature wonderfully. We had a great time exploring the beautiful island. Thank heavens!
