White Island, Camiguin

4.3
#1 of 25 in Beaches in Mindanao
Made up of only white sand, White Island attracts sunbathers and scuba divers. The most-visited sandbar on the island sits against the backdrop of Mount Hibok-Hibok and Old Vulcan. This island, which is basically just a strip of sand, is shaped like a horseshoe when tides are low. It can be easily accessed from Barangay Agoho or Brgy. Be sure to bring lots of sunblock, as there are no trees nor shade of any kind on the island. With our international travel planner, Camiguin attractions like White Island can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Where to stay in Camiguin

Although a little off the beaten path, Camiguin certainly offers visitors a fair share of lodging options. The island boasts a number of resorts, ranging from high-end to mid-range and budget bungalows and cottages--you can even stay in a treehouse. Most of the places to stay on Camiguin lie beachside, along its northern coast, but you can find a couple of options inland as well, offering easy access to some of the island's famous natural sights. Camiguin can get busy in the high season, so it might be best to book ahead of time if visiting from March to May.
