It looks pristine. Especially when you look down at it from -say- the Hibok Hibok volcano. It's absolutely gorgeous to be there during the sunset. But honestly, for the rest it's nothing. There's nothing there. There's only sand. There's not a single tree. During the season there may be some little tents of locals selling some stuff, and fishermen dock... More

Was in Camiguin last May 28 to June 3, and one of the best I've been when i was there was when we were in the white island, though we did not stayed long because the place is so hot, no trees just sand bar. But when you're there the view of Camiguin from white island is awesome and the... More

The best time to go there is at dawn so you would be able to catch the sunrise. And also that you will not be burnt by sun rays around when it is late already. The island is a pure sand without any trees, buildings or infrastructure so it is better to bring something to cover you and apply sunblock... More

Go there late in the afternoon. Catch the last boat if you can, around 4:00 pm....they head back at 5:30 This is the best time to enjoy the sunset... At mthe sand bar, enough time for a quick dip, some snorkeling and picture taking, without those umbrella-rental-boys bothering you because you went there at mid-day.

It's amazing how it is just a strip of white sand. You need to take a 30 minute boat from Camiguin Island to get here. The sand in Camiguin's shore is remarkably different in the White Sand Bar. It was peak season when we went therefore there were lots of people and you can even rent a beach umbrella. The... More

White Island perse is nothing but a small sand bar lost near the coast of Agojo, Mambajao, Camiguin. Getting in the island can be easily done with a 10 minute boat ride. Approaching the Island from afar, you could already see the white, shimmering sands of the Island which forms a letter "C" but it changes depending on the tide... More

Stunning strip of white sand island dipping along the waters of Bohol Sea. The time I got here, we witnessed an intimate beach Civil Wedding and the whole place looks very romantic. The means of transportation here are outrigger canoes and the last fetching is at 6PM. We stayed at Paras Beach Resort which is the nearest access to the... More

Growing up in the Philippines I had this privilege to actually observe different kinds of beaches since I was a kid. For me, White Island was just like any other white sand beach. The only difference is that it's a sand bar in the middle of the sea so you need to spend 450 PHP to get from the main... More

Beautiful stretch of white sand... clear and cool water to swim in.... bring your own food and drinks... never missed this part of Camiguin. Bring sun block and an umbrella also as the sun maybe too hot for some... no worries though as the water is invitingly cool..
