The place is near Masbate city. Easily accessed. We were so amazed by how beautiful the sand bar is. You can swim below the cottages, no need to worry getting sun burnt.

One of the best tourist destination and a must.go spot in Masbate City. Its just a 15minutes ride to the island. Just bring food for your lunch and always follow rules such as its boundary due to sudden depth of water

Bring food, charcoal, (cook here) water and a hat and 1000+Pesos for the boat and entry - Not really a sanctuary because everyone is fishing. Howerver...This is a beautiful spot and worth bringing a camera

This is a sandbar about 15 minutes or less away from Masbate City. You need to hire a boat for php500 (5pax). You can do beach bumming, kayaking, or snorkeling (no beautiful corals but there are clams and a lot of fish). I'm definitely giving...More

Known to only a few tourists, Buntod Sand Bar and Sanctuary is a perfect weekend getaway. It is just a 30-minute ride from the city through a motorized boat. The reef is still rich with corals and diverse fishes, and there are giant clams! If...More
