This sandbar was my very first one, went there way back 25 years ago when there was no fees yet. My fam went there using my uncle's bangka and its still as gorgeous as it was way back. The sand is as white and clean, the water as crystalline as before. Went there last year and there were municipal fees,... More

You shouldn't miss going here.. sand bar with amazing backdrop.. can't ask for a better picture to take home with you! Advice: go early in the morning so you could enjoy the island less the heat of the sun.

+ white, fine and soft sand + great view of the Camiguin island! we even saw lenticular clouds above one of the volcanoes + less than 20mins by boat from the Camiguin island - not much to see for snorkeling

Super white sands surrounded by the bluest water I have ever seen. We stopped here on our day tour of Camiguin and enjoyed the wonderful views and ate Sea Urchin from a local. Great place to take pictures with Camiguin in the backdrop.

It's not quite big but you will be amazed with this island. The beach and sands are amazing, white sand, beach are green, light green, blue and so clear also very nice to relax and swim. It's a 10-15 mins ride from Paras Beach Resort and the boat will cost you 450php roundtrip. Dont worry if you dont bring drinks... More

Booked a boat ride to the island with my Filipino family and had just a wonderful few hours there. The sand is so pure and of course white. It almost feels like walking on quicksand. U just sink up to your knees in some areas. Even while we were there the sand was shifting. Just love Camaguin. Want to retire... More

Early morning dip on the island is cool but the place can get really crowded so taking a good solo photo can be tough. What I like about the island is its fine white sand and a makeshift store serving breakfast meal which makes things easier.

Very laid back, white sand island that can be reach via pump boat within 20 minutes from the main shore of Brgy Yumbing. Got tables and chairs with umbrella for beach bummers to rent, food stalls available in the island as well. Its a-must try beach bumming experience in Camiguin!
