Explore Negros Oriental's stunning outdoors with this day tour that will take you to the pristine Manjuyod Sandbar and the Balinsasayao Twin Lakes. You will be spending the whole day on a nature excursion, making this a perfect trip for outdoor enthusiasts. The whole tour includes hotel pick-up and drop-off, land and sea transfers, lunch, a round of drinks, and the service of a guide. 

Your day starts once your guide fetches you from your accommodation within Dumaguete City, Sibulan, Tanjay, or Bais at 7:30 AM. When you're settled in the air-conditioned vehicle, you will then make your way to the Bais wharf. Here, you will board a boat bound for the Manjuyod Sandbar. This stretch of sand goes on for 7 kilometers and has been dubbed the "Maldives of the Philippines" due to its powdery white sand. 

During your time here, feel free to soak up some sun on the smooth sand or swim in the surrounding azure waters to cool off. If the weather conditions are favorable, you may opt to depart earlier so you can enjoy dolphin watching.

When you've had your fill of the sea for the day, you will head back to the wharf and travel to the Twin Lakes of Balinsasayao. The twin lakes are located in the town of Sibulan and have gained popularity due to their picturesque views.

Surrounding the two lakes are lush greeneries and mini waterfalls that fill the area with a relaxing atmosphere. As you admire the beautiful scenery, you will also be treated to your lunch near the lakes. Take the time to feast on your hearty meal while enjoying the fresh air. Along with taking in the ambiance, you can also cross the lake aboard a banca to get a more scenic view of the environment or trek around the lake via a rock trail.

After your tour, you will be dropped off at your hotel so you can rest.
