“Typical White Sand Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Looking for a white sand beach in Camiguin which is accesible in 15 minutes? This is the answer.

this just one typical sandbar for me. But this is the ONLY WHITE SAND BAR in Camiguin that's why this is truly a tourists spot.

Recommended to go there early in the morning, The view is breath taking. Watch the sun rise, and see the tourists coming. We were there even the caretaker arrived. :)

Highly advisable to go because the beach is very relaxing. Tortoise water everywhere. White finessand. Fishes play with you as you dive. Bring along your goggles to appreciate the underwater.

“Sandbar galore!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

A side trip to this island would definitely send you to bliss! A sand bar just off the coast of Camiguin island where you can do picnic, romantic dinner and scuba diving as well!

“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

get up early, plan it for before breakfast, it gets very very hot if the sun is coming out. its not expensive to go there , plenty of local boats around, i paid 600 peso ( i tipped a lot more ) my girlfriend smiled so much i was blinded. a short trip over a few bouncy waves and then suddenly this little sand bar or small sand pit appears, there was a tax collector and fresh sea urchin food bucket so take some peso !! but the experiance is like nothing else. Just do it, take photo's , record a video, it is a moment to treasure...like the whole island really.

“Sandy spit with a few fish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We wanted to go for sunset (may be quieter that time of day) - but we were rained out, so opted for a last-minute visit at 7am on our last morning. Beautiful views of Camiguin, but be prepared to share with about 60 others. Snorkeling is sparse - shallow waters and lots of boat traffic. This is really just a photo opp stop.
