Palad Sandbar 


Palad Sandbar is a hidden gem nestled in the province of Marinduque, Philippines. This pristine sandbar, also known as Palad Hideaway, offers visitors a breathtaking escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. With its crystal-clear waters, fine white sand, and untouched beauty, it has become a must-visit attraction for tourists seeking tranquility and natural wonders.

Palad Sandbar's main allure lies in its unspoiled beauty and secluded location. As the tide recedes, it unveils a stunning stretch of white sand that stretches far into the ocean, creating a seemingly endless pathway to the horizon. Surrounded by turquoise waters and lush greenery, it feels like a paradise untouched by time.

Palad Sandbar is often included in island-hopping tours around Marinduque, along with nearby attractions such as Maniwaya Island and Mongpong Island, adding to the adventure and exploration.


How to get there

To reach Palad Sandbar, first, travel to Marinduque, which is accessible by air or sea from major cities in the Philippines. From the mainland, take a boat or rent a banca (outrigger boat) from the nearest port, typically in the town of Sta. Cruz or the nearby island of Maniwaya. The boat ride may take around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the weather and sea conditions.


Best time to visit

The ideal time to visit Palad Sandbar is during the dry season, which usually falls between November and May. The weather is generally sunny and dry, offering pleasant conditions for beach activities and island hopping. Avoid the rainy season, from June to October, as strong winds and heavy rainfall can disrupt travel plans and make the sea conditions unfavorable for boat rides.
