Before I start my review, I would like to stress out that this Island belongs to Palompon, Leyte although you can reach the island via Malapascua, Cebu.
I was intrigued with the island and its famous sandbar so I decided to schedule a travel plan to visit it. I actually planned to go there by myself but decided to bring a friend to share with the expenses. The trip was one of those "spur-of-the-moment" plan but it was worth it. We don;t know that much about the Island except that there is no electricity and no supply of water and we have to bring camping gears.
The island is stunning and beautiful. It is one-of-a kid in the Philippines and actually my first time to walk a sand bar that long and marvelous. The sand is not as powder as boracay but it is white and the water is clear and warm. Traveling to the island is also a pleasant experience for I was able to watch a group of Dolphins swimming and playing. According to the boat driver, it is a rare scenery so we got lucky.
I suggest for those who plans to visit the island to camp and stay overnight and try swimming during the night time and also to watch the moon.
I wouldn't advice to stay in the island for more than 2 days since there is no water supply and not much of activities to do.
