Information about Manjuyod Sandbar
Manjuyod Sandbar is located in the North Bais Bay of Negros Oriental and has been dubbed the "Maldives of the Philippines" because of its spotless white sand. The whole sandbar stretches for seven kilometers and is best seen during the low tide. When the tide is high, the sandbar disappears under the waves and makes the native wooden houses here look like they're floating on water.
Another popular attraction here is dolphin watching as pods of dolphins are known to swim by the sandbar when the conditions are right. Aside from taking a stroll on the sandbar and watching dolphins, visitors can also snorkel in the surrounding waters or head to the Post 2 Marine Sanctuary, where you can snorkel and ride a banana boat.
Best time to visit
It is best to visit the Manjuyod Sandbar in the summer months, which generally starts in December and goes on until the last weeks of May. It is also recommended to visit during low tide as this is when the sandbar emerges, perfect for photos.
