White Island in Camiguin is a stunning sandbar shaped like the letter “C” and covering only 2.4 hectares, offers an otherworldly escape for beach lovers and nature enthusiasts alike.
Accessible by a short boat ride from the mainland, White Island’s pristine beauty awaits travelers seeking a tropical paradise. With no structures or trees, the island offers an unspoiled environment where the soft, powdery white sand gleams under the golden sun.
White Island is unique in that it is an uninhabited sandbar, which means it changes shape and size depending on the tides and currents. The island is not permanently fixed and may disappear during high tide. During low tide, the sandbar emerges, creating a stunning and picturesque white sand beach.
The island offers breathtaking views of Mount Hibok-Hibok, a stratovolcano on Camiguin, as well as panoramic vistas of the mainland and the surrounding turquoise waters of the Bohol Sea.
