“Once beautiful white sand beach”
Review of Santiago Bay Beach

Santiago Bay Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This is the best stretch of white sand beach on Camotes.
Unfortunately as with most nice places, it has not been very well cared for.
Extremely busy with locals who camp all over the beach, play loud music and leave large amounts of trash when they leave.
Water is shallow but not very clean, plenty of floating garbage etc.
Facilities are minimal and basically consist of kayak rental at one of the restaurants.
There are several Beach bar type restaurants at the western end all with similar menus and (even for Philippines standards) disgusting bathroom facilities.
I would seriously question the water cleanliness considering the complete lack of sewerage infrastructure in Philippines - Where does it all go?

There is some coral and fish out there but its a long walk. The water is very shallow even at high tide. Ideal for kids but not for me. A few decent grill type restaurants. A laid back feel in the week but I bet its pretty unpleasant at the weekend.

a nice beach with some eateries straight on the beach with some good food. Good for kids because they can go far in the water without getting to deep.
