“A little visit to a sand bank”
Review of White Island

White Island
Ranked #1 of 28 things to do in Camiguin
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 3, 2014

It looks pristine. Especially when you look down at it from -say- the Hibok Hibok volcano.

It's absolutely gorgeous to be there during the sunset.
But honestly, for the rest it's nothing. There's nothing there. There's only sand. There's not a single tree.

During the season there may be some little tents of locals selling some stuff, and fishermen dock here to empty their nets after their catch in the morning.
That makes for interesting views.

For the rest... You can walk back and forth it (if it's not flooded by the tide) in 10 minutes.
Don't reserve a day for it.

Was in Camiguin last May 28 to June 3, and one of the best I've been when i was there was when we were in the white island, though we did not stayed long because the place is so hot, no trees just sand bar. But when you're there the view of Camiguin from white island is awesome and the white island itself with clear waters and low cloud formations around was really nice. Glad the weather was good when we were there... there were few people arranged by local government where you can rent a big umbrella to give you some shade if you like.

The best time to go there is at dawn so you would be able to catch the sunrise. And also that you will not be burnt by sun rays around when it is late already. The island is a pure sand without any trees, buildings or infrastructure so it is better to bring something to cover you and apply sunblock if you don't want to get sunburns.

Go there late in the afternoon.
Catch the last boat if you can, around 4:00 pm....they head back at 5:30
This is the best time to enjoy the sunset... At mthe sand bar, enough time for a quick dip, some snorkeling and picture taking, without those umbrella-rental-boys bothering you because you went there at mid-day.
