The water is unreal, it has at least three different shades in turquoise and it's like from a postcard. You don't regret this trip. Only minus was, that the tourist's leave trash on the beach and then locals have to clean it up, "Leave nothing but footprints."

Things to See The place is surrounded by islands and stony islets which is spectacular coupled with summer sun. The rocky islets is so fascinating to view crafted by nature itself. Things to Do Basically, this place as far I am aware of is for lunch time. This is where some tourist guide brings their clients for some relaxation and... More

Once you land on the shore it seems like you've landed on your private place. All around is beautiful and the atmosphere is like in a movie.

It is a must to swim and snorkel in the beautiful beach with very fine white sand and very clear seawater in Payong-Payong Beach. Likewise you will see the fantastic rock formation of the other islands nearby.

I love that it's so quiet here, most tour will stop by this island for lunch only. But you can explore the beach (it's small) and take pictures, it's a relaxing place.

We had gone here instead of Shimizu. The cocky and lazy boatmen were the ones who decided that we dock here. They reasoned out that Shimizu was crowded already. Hell we didn't have the tour to be dictated on where to go and stop. I hope every Tour provider sets it clear with the boatmen that they're not the customers... More
