This Island beach provides a combination of what most people travel to the Philippines to see... grand ocean/island scenery, white sand beaches with coconut groves, and excellent snorkeling. It is definitely a "family" destination, accessed by boat, with shade structures and picnic tables available. There were quite a few people there when we visited, despite the time/distance required to travel there by boat. While the beach and ocean scenery is phenomenal, as with many Philippine attractions the facilities leave a lot to be desired. There are toilet facilities with water (a plus), but there are numerous run down old/unused structures that need to be removed, and some areas of the island have been cleared (with small stumps sticking up everywhere) and replanted with a variety of mango, palm, and other types of trees or shrubbery.... not sure what the purpose is. The place needs a good, extra-heavy-duty clean-up, with properly done repairs to the usable structures, and the "resort" part of the island could be made to complement the scenery and beautiful beach. My "Very Good" rating is due to the ocean scenery and beach that make this place worth visiting, not the limited (and run-down) facilities offered.

The experience was unlike any other. The island itself has bad reception - which is great for me so I could focus more on relaxing rather than working or social media. Loved the hammocks spread around the area.

Only issue was we got stuck here for hours. What was supposed to be an 8am to 5pm tour, turned to 8am to 10pm. But yeah, it's not a bad place to get stuck at. We were provided with more beers and chips.

Great island!

I love how you can walk straight as there is water on both sides of you. It is a lovely place to visit. The water is sky blue and clear. Up the top, you can walk climb to see the wonderful view of the island.

This was the last stop on my beach hopping excursion. More white sand, strong winds and great views. This stop also offers hammocks that set up in a shaded area as well as places to lay under trees in the white sand. Made for a relaxing stop.

Gorgeous island. Get some sun, snorkel and have a beverage! Be sure to make sure the guides get you a snorkel before your boat goes!

Some tours mention “ cyc beach” . This it. It was the last stop of our “super ultimate package”. Felt it was too crowded for a small
strip of sand. Snokeling was not good either. Too many boats moving back and forth.

We had a wonderful experience with Rafael Mangua! We made contact on facebook when i was still in Brazil! He always respond quickly and are very requested! They picked us up at the hotel, bought our drinks and lunch and cooked for us! Always smiling, friendly, helpful .. He explained everything to us in every place we visited, took pictures and was very polite! And to top it off, the for lunches were amazing, with lots of seafood (shrimp, squid, octopus, fish, lobster, salad, fruit)! It was one of the best experiences we've ever had! Congratulations to our friend Rafael! Thanks for the perfect days!

This place is absolutely gorgeous. The sand is white, the water is crystal blue and the palm trees lining the beach just make it the ultimate topical island. I would definitely recommend in seeing this island through a tour that also takes you to other nearby islands as the water ways are simply stunning!
