After our 9-hour trek, you’d think that we’d be dying to crawl towards the bed and get some rest, right?
Well, nope. Where’s the fun in that? We made the most out of our day instead and rented a boat to White Island!
White Island is a famous sandbar in Camiguin. It’s a really small white sand island without trees and any inhabitants.
To go to the island, you would have to rent a boat for P450. It can accommodate up to six people. At the port, you can rent a snorkeling set at P100 per person, which is composed of a snorkeling mask and a life vest.
As you reach the island, you’ll be greeted with the heat as there are no trees to provide shade. However, you can rent a table with umbrella for P150.
We went snorkeling, but we saw only a few variety of fishes and corals there. Maybe because the water became too shallow in the afternoon?
There’s a tiny store in the island where you can buy chips and soda, but the prices are sky high. Better bring your own food and drinks!
White Island is a nice place to relax, make sand castles, take selfies, do cartwheels, and probably roll around the white sand too. You can also get a good view of Mt. Hibok-Hibok from the island.
We went back to Mambajao before 5PM and then headed to Ardent Hot Spring. The water wasn’t really ‘hot’. As you go into the water, you can feel the warmth, but it quicky vanishes after a few minutes as your body gets used to the temperature.
And that concludes our second day in Camiguin. Stay tuned for Day 3!
