The whole family spent two nights in this Island. It's a coral Island, and they built a resort on top of it, so don't expect a beach area with a wide expanse of sand, or sandbar. You'll get to see sand at sundown when the water recedes and the you and the children can walk for miles looking for shells....

This is a quite hidden small island outside of Mactan. I would recommend to plan the boattrip out there in decent time before (we had some challenges getting the right prices when we were at the harbor in Mactan..) The welcoming and friendly staff is really unique and service-minded. The clear water, the beach and the tranquility is worth the...

Went there for a snorkeling trip, when I got the island, the boatman organized the payment for entrance fee. But then I merely stayed on the island for 5mins. And our boat was asked to leave the port. We cant even find a good place to snorkel because the boats are everywhere, and we got nowhere to dock. Just went...

Great area for snorkelling. Was on this island whilst island hopping in the Philippines. Perfect isolated island and plenty of fish to see when snorkelling, despite the small area only allowed for snorkelling. Would definitely recommend!!
