Like Antonia Beach and Sicogon, this is another island that is usually included in a day island hopping tour from Isla Gigantes. The place is famous for its stretch of white sand bar and crystal clear waters, great for swimming. But aside from these, the...More

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 sandbar is long during low tides making it a good place to swim and sunbathe. Freshest seafood (mostly shellfishes) available at affordable prices too. (Although the cooking should improve)
