Stayed in this pristine beach for more than an hour and it was definitely amazing and satisfying. Weather was perfect, clean and clear water, white sand, plus yummy sea urchins. It was worth a visit.

Just a chunk of sand (actually crushed coral) about 5 km off Camaguin island. Nothing to do but be there as nothing to see snorkelling. The view back to camaguin is nice. Vaery touristy.

Definitely a must visit place in Camiguin! The view from the island is so awesome as you get to be in the first seat of seing the good Mt. Hibok Hibok. The water is so aluring. There are mats and parasols that you can rent...More

Yes, via pump boat. Nice place to see sunrise or sunset, otherwise just a sandbar. Watch for the currents if you swim there.
