This island is a little to organized for tourism but still beautiful. The beach of white sand and the landscape are beautiful. Is you are as lucky as me, you will maybe catch a starfish in the water.

Great island for hopping. Though locals selling photo stop using your own camera. It would be nice if there's additional refreshment stores like sago't gulaman or halo halo. :)

This island has a spa and bar. Most people who go here doesn't really swim, instead they hit the spa or order some drinks in the bar. Their fruit shakes are very refreshing!

Now, this is where to swim if you are an adult and of course with your cute little ones (attended). Toilet/showers are clean. If you are into sunbathing, here's the place for you as well.

During our island hopping this is my favorite beach drop. The island was so nice and has lots of trees. You can swim, dine, and play.

There is a decent toilet but dont expect first class facilities as it is an island far from the city.
