Include a stop in virgin island in your island hoping out of any panglao resort. you will enjoy walling in the sand banks, buying shells and swimming on the shallow and warm waters after you take the perfect postcard picture that will make your family and friends envious.

“A boring island in the swamp.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

The Banka has to travel very slowly to avoid the reef getting into virgin island. The island is pretty but the water surrounding he island was swampy and stagnant and as we were the only visitors we were overwhelmed with hawkers selling jewellery and drinks.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Went to Virgin Island while on the banka boat back to the resort. This island is beautiful. It is rather strange to jump from a boat, 200 yards from an ocean, walking in knee-high water on a white sandy beach. Virgin Island would be perfect for grilling out, having some lechon, cold San Miguel beers and the company of friends, make this a perfect spot to relax.
