With a crystal water and a very inviting sand, this Island is a much see and visit place in Camiguin. With just a less than 30 mins boat ride with a bit of wavy sea, yet it is worth sailing for.

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