White Island, Camiguin

White Island is a sand bar located 2 kilometers from the coast of Mambajao, Camiguin. Shaped as an "I" or a "C" depending on the tides, the sand bar, with its white sand and the cerulean waters surrounding it, is perfect for a lazy day of beach bumming.

It is also the perfect place to appreciate the grandeur of Mt. Vulcan and Hibok-hibok, the two volcanoes that figure so much in Camiguin's history.

How to Get there: Small boats called bancas can be hired at the Paras Beach Resort in Mambajao, Camiguin to take you to the island, for PhP400 with up to 7 passengers. There is an entrance fee of PhP 15 per person to the island.

Where to stay: Enigmata Ecolodge
