Don't miss this, seriously. Take a boat near sunset time and a couple of beers (but make sure to take your trash with you). The sunset from here is simply breathtaking. If you come a little early you can also snorkel around the island.

A great little tourist trap for you to get a view of Camiguin. The beach was white and the was water blue. There were only a few couples there while we visited and seemed to have unlimited access by ourselves to the entire beach. A place to see!

It is a bit expensive to get there, pay boat and taxes, but this time of the trip you should be already used to how much they like your money here. White Island is just a deserted beach, which depending on how lucky you are, you might get the whole beach for yourself or be in the middle of salou... More

Good place to meet sunset, but better not to go there in noon - there is no place to hide unless you take something with you. Good news: you can buy cold beer / water there. Actually, it is good place for snorkeling and photo of sunset above Hibok-Hibok. As usually in the Philippines, we paid all possible tickets and... More

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
