“Sandbar galore!”
Review of White Island

White Island
Reviewed December 17, 2012

A side trip to this island would definitely send you to bliss! A sand bar just off the coast of Camiguin island where you can do picnic, romantic dinner and scuba diving as well!

get up early, plan it for before breakfast, it gets very very hot if the sun is coming out. its not expensive to go there , plenty of local boats around, i paid 600 peso ( i tipped a lot more ) my girlfriend smiled so much i was blinded. a short trip over a few bouncy waves and then suddenly this little sand bar or small sand pit appears, there was a tax collector and fresh sea urchin food bucket so take some peso !! but the experiance is like nothing else. Just do it, take photo's , record a video, it is a moment to treasure...like the whole island really.

We wanted to go for sunset (may be quieter that time of day) - but we were rained out, so opted for a last-minute visit at 7am on our last morning. Beautiful views of Camiguin, but be prepared to share with about 60 others. Snorkeling is sparse - shallow waters and lots of boat traffic. This is really just a photo opp stop.

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.
