For swimming, it is not very good, as you will have to walk "forever" to get to deep water. Water itself looks clean, but its som much grass and soil in the water that many places it is not clear at all. 5 small beach...More

The beach is nice and clean and it’s not too big. Lot of food options are available and many hotels are also available nearby. Good to enjoy a swim with family and friends

Great white beach especially on high tide. Restaurants is good along the beach. Transportation is quite expensive.

We visited this place on our island tour as the first place. Nice and clean beach. We stopped just for few minutes so that we can't mention more about it.

Nice and inexpensive meals on the beach ... not too touristy like El Nido or Borocay or even Malapascua! So here prices are reasonable and you won't be overrun by other tourists. For 500P/day we rented a scooter and did quite a circumnavigation from both...More

This is the best stretch of white sand beach on Camotes. Unfortunately as with most nice places, it has not been very well cared for. Extremely busy with locals who camp all over the beach, play loud music and leave large amounts of trash when...More

There is some coral and fish out there but its a long walk. The water is very shallow even at high tide. Ideal for kids but not for me. A few decent grill type restaurants. A laid back feel in the week but I bet...More
