Information about White Island
Camiguin's White Island is a must-visit destination for any traveler seeking the best white sand beaches in the Philippines. Along with its powdery shore, the island is known for its tendency to change shape depending on the tide. Since the island is completely bare, it's perfect for sunbathing and a relaxing swim in the surrounding waters. If you'd want some shade during your stay here, it's recommended to bring your own umbrella.
Along with soaking up some sun on the island, you can also enjoy an unobstructed view of Camiguin's coast from here, along with a good view of Mt. Hibok Hibok and Mt. Vulcan as well. If you head into the surrounding waters, you'll find several corals that house different kinds of fish.
The island is 1.8 kilometers away from the land and can be accessed by a small boat along Mambajao, if guests are already coming from the Camiguin town proper.
Best time to visit
It's best to drop by the island during the Philippines' summer season (March to May), when there are fewer chances of heavy rainfall and winds.
