We stayed at Camiguin White Island Beach Resort which is located just one straight stretch from the White Island. Even from afar, you can see that the island is peaceful and clean. The Resort arranged us for a tour on the island worth P500 (including goggles and life vest). Travel time is around 5-10 minutes from mainland. There is no... More

It wasn't my first time in Camiguin but definitely my first time with my family. I had an amazing weekend there. Tried and explored as much as we could so it was really something I'd forever treasure. Well, aside from the fact the we got stranded (maybe because it was peak season that time), and it wasn't really a good... More

Sad thing, because the island itsself is so beautiful. But in the sea around it you won't find much life. Corals are dead, all grass there, many starfish and sea urchin. We rented a boat to come there. This was really nice because we could go a bit around and try other spots. The boat people were really nice. Always... More

White Island is the perfect place to relax for as little or as long as you'd like. Rent a private boat for approximately 500 pesos per person to take you to the island. Once there, buy some snacks and bask in the sun while taking in views of the ocean and the main island of Camiguin.

A 5-minute boat ride away from the main Island of Camiguin, White Island is a bare sandbar. The white stretch of land offers a scenic view of the popular Camiguin sunrise. Things to do in White Island: 1. Be there at the crack of dawn. The best time to visit the island is right before the sun is up the... More

This sandbar was my very first one, went there way back 25 years ago when there was no fees yet. My fam went there using my uncle's bangka and its still as gorgeous as it was way back. The sand is as white and clean, the water as crystalline as before. Went there last year and there were municipal fees,... More

You shouldn't miss going here.. sand bar with amazing backdrop.. can't ask for a better picture to take home with you! Advice: go early in the morning so you could enjoy the island less the heat of the sun.

Super white sands surrounded by the bluest water I have ever seen. We stopped here on our day tour of Camiguin and enjoyed the wonderful views and ate Sea Urchin from a local. Great place to take pictures with Camiguin in the backdrop.
