“unchanged view... vendors-needs training...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I never expected it to be the same since 2007(my 1st visit). Good Job to the Tourism people.I hate the haggling for the snorkeling gears done by the vendors though. Why cant they make a fix price for it?... But All i all, Honey and I enjoyed the trip... limited as it was... its worth it.

“Nice fish- Expensive boat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

500 pesos to rent a boat for a 10 minute trip. Why not just run boats back and forth and charge a reasonable amount. If you had a big group, i guess it is ok but for a couple, a bit of rip off.
The fish are pretty good, coral has seen better days.

“Awed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

White is for White island in camiguin
boat ride from the Jump off point would cost around 500 and the boatman will wait for you until you decide to back to the main island camiguin.
this places closes at around 6 PM you can't stay any longer than that.
Jump off point is right across Paras Hotel boat's line up on the beach and souvenir shops line up on the road too.
Umbrella, sunblock, water and food is a must, there are no shelter on this sandbar so if you worship the sun and would like to get a very good tan this is one of those place were you can definitely get one.
Sunsets on this place is stunning you dont want to miss it.
As usuall waters here are clear.

“Sun and Sand at White Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Its a small sand bar off the coast of Agoho, Mambajao in the island-province of Camiguin...its a must-see venue for those who love white sand, clear water, coral reefs and all the sun there is (since there are no available natural shades) and you can see the volcanoes of Camiguin clearly from here
