Make this Island your first stop with your Island hopping. Be sure not to come here beyond 9 AM, first, there are no shades available, so better bring a beach umbrella, second, the sand bar gets too hot, that you can't walk without sandals.

The waves brought us faster to this sand bar, one of the few in Gigantes Islands. Who could imagine that a gastro hut is located here where you can eat grilled squid, wasay-wasay (a different kinda clam) and the famous scallop at a very reasonable...More

Good place to get lost and find your inner peace! It was the first island we visited. The travel from bulobadiang to Bantigue wasn't that smooth but it paid off! I love the view!
