Worth a visit! We stopped here before going turtle watching and it was great! So small and beautiful. Look out for sea porcupines and beautiful star fish! Enjoy!

We headed here for a quick pitstop on our way to another island. This place is definitely worth a visit! Very cute and beautiful you can buy some coconut juice and hangout. There's lots of starfish you can see in the water it's so clear and shallow!

My visit to this beach was just quick. I didn't quite enjoy my visit to this island as much as I expected. The place is good for taking pictures though. But that's just about it. There are stores that sells buko juice and stuff. Water is just ankle deep and you can't swim in the sea coz there are a... More

Several couples in my group took the island hopping tour which included a stop at the peaceful and beautiful virgim islands. A nice romantic walk and many pictures were taken but we spent a lot of time dodging the many "fake jewelry" solicitors there. They were relentless!

Make sure to include this island when you visit bohol. Paradise!!! Looks like a much cleaner and more peaceful version of boracay

Coconuts, sand bar, urchins and happiness. Excellent. Took quite a long time by boat to get there but it's really beautiful and nice to swim and chill in the water. Some annoying vendors selling cheap jewelery. Would recommend.

Virgin? Not. But i would agree that the sandbar is nice and white but it can be very crowded and small food stalls occupy the area. Not virgin to me. It is part of the Bohol sea tour and is usually the last one in the tour before going home. Its picture worthy, lots of sea weeds and sea creatures... More

If going on island hopping tour - you will spend there 30-45 min. But in my opinion is enough. Also it free to enter unlike other places. Clean, white, calm.
