“Amazingly beautiful White Island”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

The island is really amazing!! It seems floating and you will enjoy swimming and snorkeling in the island. It is just a few minutes away from the main land and the boat ride is also a lot of fun. You can watch the majestic Mt. Hibok hibok from the White Island. Some fishermen were selling see urchin for you to taste and you must try it. The sand bar is more or less 100 meters long.

The sand is soft in some areas and pebbles in other areas....the ocean is very clear and warm. I have been there 2 times and will go back again next year....also there is now a fee to go to this island it is small I can't remember how much......It is worth every peso...haha...

“A Piece of Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

I’ve always wanted to see what’s on a sand bar. On a plane I thought it’s a piece of dessert in the middle of the sea. After visiting Camiguin’s fame White Island –it’s actually a piece of heaven on earth. It’s just bare white sand in the middle of the sea-no palm trees or rocks just plain white sand. It’s hot so bring your sunscreen, take a dip because sometimes the island will be submerged underwater. The kids would love this place same goes for lovers and families, too. Great time to visit is in the morning or afternoon. You can bring food or drinks but make sure you only take gorgeous pictures when you return. To get there one must negotiate with a boatman to rent a banca. Ours cost 400 pesos round trip.

“Camiguin "White Island"”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

I wished we'd more time to stay in this peaceful place. A truly white island with very clear water and adorable waves. If you're a beach lover don't missed this place in your list of places to visit.
Going there is not that expensive than what we spent during our shopping. I've read a review of the girl named scarletf and found it really great, then I've contacted Kuya Teddy who accommodated us with our Camiguin tour. We had a great experience during our trip since people we've met were friendly, place we've stayed was cool for bedtime and we dine @ "luna pizza restorante" which they served us a yummy food.
