Vulcan called "Hibok-hibok," more or less seven , then a small white island in the middle of the deep blue sea formed. just few kilometers from the sunken cemetery of sea water. The white island is enchanting, like a face of the moon. Once you... More

We visited here last week of June so the weather wasn't too hot. It was late in the afternoon too so it was perfect spending the rest of the afternoon swimming here. Pretty much a sandbar and they have folks that offers renting of the chairs and beach umbrella. We enjoyed our time here!

At first, I was hesitant, I told my daughter, maybe it's just one of the white beaches I've seen. But my daughter prevailed. So we went so early. Upon reaching the place as... More

It is perfect from dawn to 10 am. After that, get ready to burn. My husband liked eating the sea urchins sold on the beach.

This is just a sand spit. If you are not diving, there is nothing much to do here. It is irritating that some mainlanders set up stores on the island.

Just a sandbar, but a nice place to watch sunrise or sunset. A short bangka ride from Yumbing. Good swimming, some fish. Be careful of the currents.

With the new records of The Phil. ARchipelago of 1,500 islands if it is low tide that includes the White Island. The place is indespensable when you are in Camiguin.

offers a breathtaking view of camiguin. clear waters. sand is coarse with coral fragments so it's difficult to walk barefoot. was there during the low season and took the first trip at 5.30am to avoid the crowd and too much heat. left at 8am. 2hrs is enough. shouldn't have rented snorkel gears because there was nothing to see except for...
