It was one of the best vacation so far... my first travel of the year 2017 is my vacation to 🇵🇭. Though it was a very tiring flight from Malta to Philippines it was all worth it coz got to visit the beautiful island of sumilon.. 😘

If you want to relax and get away from the busy life in the city, this place is really perfect especially if you are a beach baby.

I'm sure it's probably nicer at a different time or day or of the year or anytime other than when we were there, but it was tiny, crowded, super dirty with tons of litter and had subpar snorkeling. Much nicer places to see a sandbar in my opinion. Not worth the trip.

We availed the P1500 day tour that included the 10 minute bangka transfers, lunch and activities. The lunch was quite good with some Western options such as fish in mango sauce available. There were even miniature desserts. Snorkelling was not great as there was not much coral. The resort needs to remove debris from the water at the western boat... More

We decided to visit here in the morning and ended up spending longer than we first planned! The sea was very blue and the small secluded beach was great to sunbathe on! Just bring plenty of sun cream as there are no shaded areas to protect yourself from the sun. The boat cost 1500 pesos between 3 but if you... More

We visited Sumilon Island and availed the Sumilon Bluewater daytour package. The sandbar is good but not that big like the one in Bohol. It's a good place to see. We snorkel too up to the reef. You need to swim far to see those school of fish, definitely worth the swim

Fine white sand like boracay, clearest, cleanest turqoise waters. Went on a daytour only but if you can afford it, definitely stay overnight. The public area has very little shaded areas or seats so expect to get a whole lot of sun. Bring your own food and water
