Travel Guide White Island, Camiguin

A trip to Camiguin would be incomplete without visiting White Island, just off the coast of mainland Camiguin.

Nothing but the Beach!

White Island was the highlight of my trip to Camiguin.This giant sandbar in the middle of the ocean had no restaurants, hotels, or any kind of establishment, aside from the small makeshift stall that sells drinks and rents umbrellas.

The fine, white sand of the island merged with the soft waves from the sea. The colors of the sea shifted from emerald to blue on this almost bare island.

Aside from the white sand and clear waters, the island also provided a spectacular view of Mt. Hibok-Hibok. Lazing around on this small piece of paradise was made perfect with a view like this.

White Island was the perfect ending to my trip to Camiguin.
