Aside from walking along the powdery white sand, it also offers an astounding panoramic view of the Camiguin Island, and even a good view of Mt. Hibok Hibok and Mt. Vulcan that can also serve as a good backdrop whenever visitors take a photo of the island.
Most foreign tourist dive in the island as the underwater houses different species of aquatic animals and even numerous coral reefs are found beneath the blue waters. While typical families enjoy an hour swimming and playing with their children with the white sands, or poses for creative photos that they can cherish throughout the time.
