Less than two hours away from Dumaguete lies a pristine, 7 kilometer stretch of premium white sand known as the Manjuyod Sandbar. Start your island escapade with an early hotel pick up and you'll soon be on your way to Bais for a chance to see majestic dolphins. If you're lucky, you may spot some pantropical spotted dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, and maybe even some long-snouted spinner dolphins! A friendly boat guide will then bring you to the Manjuyod White Sandbar, where you can picnic, swim, sunbathe or just chill out. Also called the Sumapao Shoal, the sandbar has an estimated 600 hectare total strip area, including the submerged portions. On the island you can find native wooden houses built on stilts, which look like they are floating on the sea during high tide. Shortly after noon, you'll hop back on your boat for a hearty lunch as you cruise back to Bais. You’ll surely be refreshed as you head back to your hotel after a fun-filled day of exploration.
