The best time to go here is around 5:30AM where you can witness the Sunrise. There are no trees or shelter in this small Island so better to put your sunblock on. It took us an hour and a half to explore the Island and...More

Just a chunk of sand (actually crushed coral) about 5 km off Camaguin island. Nothing to do but be there as nothing to see snorkelling. The view back to camaguin is nice. Vaery touristy.

One of the amazing spot in Camiguin is White Island, a white sand and blue-colored water. It's so nice to be there!

From Camiguin to White Island, it's just a 10-15 mins trip by boat. I suggest going there early in the morning (around 6am) while there aren't much people yet and it's not as hot it will be from 9am onwards. You can rent a life...More

We went there at 6am and it was already full of people. Despite that though, the pristine water and powdery white sand was amazing. The current was quite strong which made swimming difficult and dangerous, extra caution must be observed.

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.

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