Cagayan de Oro and Camiguin (Part III)

We woke up early the next day to be able to catch White Island at low tide. The island, which is actually a white sandbar, can shrink or disappear depending on the tide. It was just a ten minute banca ride from our resort.

They’ve set up picnic huts on the island already. I used to think it was all uninhabited and void of any human structures. I think the huts ruined the pristine beauty of the island.

The island was still beautiful nonetheless. With the majestic (dormant) volcanoes of Camiguin as backdrop. White powedry sand. Relatively few people. Crystal clear waters.

One can just spend the entire day there lying on the sand in this isolated island. Have a picnic with friends or family perhaps. If only the tides weren’t so unpredictable for ignorant tourists.
