You need to hired a bangka (small boat) to take you there for 10 minutes. I cant remember the entrance fee and boat cost but we were 4 people, and we only pay no more than 500 php. Even with a bad weather, I still...More

It's quite a large sandbar but there's no shelter. Go here early so that it will be low tide and also to avoid the crowd and the heat of the sun. Boat rides start as early as 5:30am. I would suggest that you rent an...More

I'm a regular visitor and I'm so glad that we visited it last February. The sea was really calm and the water was crystal clear during our visit. White Island remains a crowd favorite but there were only a few people when we went there.

I am totally amazed how beautiful this white island is. I even thought of staying at Camiguin just to come back at this Island whenever I wanted to. I'll definitely go back!

We had our short trip to this beautiful white island and awed with the bluest water I've seen so far. I will definitely go back there :)

This is exactly how one would imagine a sandbar to be, of white sand and with the bluest of blue waters enticing you to swim. But beware though, this place is only for those who love the sun! The sandbar is small, you could walk...More

White "Island" is a crescent-shaped sandbar, not very big at all, just off Camiguin Island. Our hotel arranged the boat for us there as well as renting snorkeling gear to us. It was certainly a nice place to snorkel and to hangout and chill. While...More

Catch a powered catamaran in Camiguin from the seashore near Mindanao, and get transported to a little corner of paradise. You can pay for sunshades and tables and chairs and snacks and drinks on the beach when you reach the "island off an island". Take...More

Yes, via pump boat. Nice place to see sunrise or sunset, otherwise just a sandbar. Watch for the currents if you swim there.
