White Island is the perfect place to relax for as little or as long as you'd like. Rent a private boat for approximately 500 pesos per person to take you to the island. Once there, buy some snacks and bask in the sun while taking in views of the ocean and the main island of Camiguin.

A 5-minute boat ride away from the main Island of Camiguin, White Island is a bare sandbar. The white stretch of land offers a scenic view of the popular Camiguin sunrise. Things to do in White Island: 1. Be there at the crack of dawn. The best time to visit the island is right before the sun is up the... More

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.

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
