White Island is a pure white-sand islet off Yumbing in Camiguin Philippines. There's no vegetation, trees, hut nor single cottage to shelter from the sun.The fine white sand is comparable to great beaches anywhere else while the surrounding water is clean from greenish to blueish crystal clear. The view is awesome and swimming is such an enjoyable experience. There's much fun taking pictures,having playful games with friends, enjoying food and drinks, even just walking barefoot on the sand or simply resting on the shore. The best time to get there is early in the morning before sun rises or late afternoon before the sun sets. The place is scorching hot when the sun is up even with beach umbrellas available for rent; the heat is intense and dehydrating.
Getting there is easy. Boats are available in Barangay Yumbing in the capital town of Mambajao. You have to register at the berthing area near Paras Beach Resort, pay 450 pesos two-way boat rides good for up to 6 persons and you go ... it is only about 15 minutes ride going there. Don't bring cellphones, laptop or valuables that might get destroyed when wet but never forget your camera, sun block, swim wear, hat or umbrella, and food & drinks.
