#3 of 12 in Things to do in Bantayan Island
Walk the white coral sands of Virgin Island, or snorkel in the warm, clear waters on the search for corals and colorful marine life. Accessible via a short boat ride, the undeveloped island has no accomodations, giving it an unspoiled, natural feel, with just a few amenities for convenience. You can take a break on picnic tables and eat your own food, or enjoy cooked meals from the beach bar, with basic restrooms available on the island. The beach's main draw--its virgin nature--creates the perfect atmosphere for a relaxing, unspoiled tropical island break.

Where to stay in Bantayan Island

Santa Fe, at the southeastern tip of the island, serves as the most popular place to stay. The town features a ferry terminal, which connects the island to nearby Cebu and serves as the main entry port for visitors. Here you can choose from a range of budget and mid-range resorts, all of which offers a low-key coastal vibe and excellent beach access. For something a bit more remote, stay at one of the beach resorts on the island's southwest coast.
