I absolutely loved Naked Island. True, it's just a super small sand bar with nothing but sand and shells. True, there are no palms, no shade, no places to eat, etc. True, if you wish to be entertained and you get bored easily, this island is not for you. But if you're a nature lover and you've always dreamed of... More

They call it naked island coz you can get naked there if you want. I'm kidding yo. I think it's called naked coz there's not so much living things there. It's a sand bar so all you can see are shells, water plants, and 1 long bench with a porch for a wedding.

Small island with with sand surrounding by crystal hot sea. Very nice place but it is better to go there in the morning or before sunset because of the sun. No palm trees on the island so no shadow.

No words to describe this other than it's a MUST SEE.... I've been around the great sand bars of Palawan, Bohol, Camiguin etc but this one is really special and the sand, pristine and powdery.... Best time to be there is around, 4-5pm. Photos will be great!

It's a little sandbank located in front of Siargao. Having said that, its obvious there is no shade and it get just really really hot. If you are on the way, stop there, pull your pants down take a naked picture and get out if there.

A few palm trees planted but still so small to offer shade, some grass and a cottage with no roof. Place is great if you wanna get a tan but if you are a local just take pictures as fast as you can and get back on the boat. Place is ordinary if you've visited other sandbars. My advice is... More

It’s literally a small island full of fine white Boracay-like sand, nothing else hence the name. Nice for picture taking and for sun bathing. Not so sure though if you can get naked here :p P.S. Bring your own everything! (sarong, food, drinks etc.)

Most of my kids thought this was boring as there was nothing to do except walk around the island (5 minutes) and look at shells.

Been to better sand bars. Unless you haven't been to one I suggest you visit this one. Be careful of the sea urchins though, a friend of mine got stung.

It's a short sandbar with two benches and a few crabs, i think. Nice for photos. Nothing to do but look around and enjoy the water and the 360 beach.
