This is the only Sand Bar in bohol i know and this is the most recommended island must-see. Make sure that you will be there in a low tide moment so that you will appreciate the beauty of it.

If folks selling food and trinkets on the sandbar when the tide is out is your thing, Virgin Island is for you. I'd advise it's not worth more than a short stop on a boat tour to Balicasag.

Visited during low tide and it was so beautiful.

The famous sandbar was below water but it made it shallow enough for young kids to swim. And with the sand underneath so white, it made the beach extra pristine.

I first visited the Virgin Island 8 years ago. It was beautiful. Obviously, a lot has changed since then. There were a lot of food vendors, people and boats now. It was crowded considering that we’re still in the middle of the pandemic.

I first Visited this Island in 2008, it was at that time still "Virgin" there was nothing except the Beach and the Sun. Fast forward to 2021, the island is anything but "Virgin". The presence of Numerous Boats, Vendors Cooking Food has made the surrounding waters of the Island dirty. Sad to say that Panglao's Virgin Island has fell.Victim to Development and Tourism.

Virgin Island, as if. When I think of Virgin I think of an untouched body, however, this land was covered in food stalls, terrible boats, and humans of all things. This was utterly ridiculous. Where was the Nature? The Fish? There was nothing but algae water and a rather barren strip of land. As a Woman in my early 60s, I have vowed my life to Virginity, This was embarrassing, and will not be going back to "Virgin" Island!

i do't like the idea the vendors on the sand bar. . it should be bare from any vendors .. i don't understand why they allow this such activity in selling on the sand bar, ,we are all responsible of ourselves. .

Looks like a big sandbar with patches of mangrove trees in the middle of the sandbars. There are food vendors that sell grilled squids, grilled prawns, and fresh urchins.
