Great place for a swim and time to relax. A must try for any Camiguin visitor. Not so busy at the end of November when we were there.

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!

White island has white sand. Just about 20 minutes ride using a local motorized boat you will get to see and experience the tranquility of this small island.

The island, the sand, the view, and the water is incredibly beautiful. White Island definitely shouldn't be missed when visiting Camiguin, but take note that it can be extremely crowded during holidays and weekends. Since the island is small, it can get crowded pretty quickly, especially the drop off areas with the vendors, so it's better to head to the... More

I frequent this white island on the north of Camiguin Island. Boat ride is P600/6persons maximum, to and fro and remember your boat's number. In barangay yumbing, just beside Paras Beach Resort is the regulated put-off. The outrigger boat trip is about 15-20mins. There are no toilet facilities on the sandbar. You may taste the fresh sea urchin at P25/piece.... More

Although the boat fare and umbrella rent is a bit pricey, it sure is worth it. The place is clean, the water clear, and it's not teeming with tourists.

Best to be here early morning or late afternoon when the sun is not that hot. Boat travel takes approx 10-15 mins. We rented 2 boats at Php 450 each, we're 8 in our group, so each boat had 4 persons plus the 2 bangkeros. We paid also Php 20 each for the environmental fee. Upon reaching the island, we... More

This is just an islet, or more of a big sand bar. We went there in September 2015 and there's not much to do but swim and enjoy the clean and clear water. We were only four in the island plus the care takers of the small store. The other couple did some snorkeling activity in the nearby islet while... More

Unique experience, the island is located 7 min with a taxi boat from Camiguin main hotels area. You have to pay 450 pesos for a bot (up to 6 people) and 20 pesos fee for each person. This small piece of island is really unique and beautiful.
