Here's Why You Should Put Virgin Island's One Hectare Sand Bar On Your Travel Bucket List!


Do you love the idea of burrowing your feet in the sand or held it loosely with an open hand? How about walking barefoot in a long stretch of fine white powdery sands? Or are you like most Westerners who considers an island with palm trees a beach paradise? Maybe your just some ol' soul bitten by a travel bug, if not, you're simply a beach bum who desperately need some vitamin sea.


Well, hello! I'd like to suggest an idea for your next much awaited communion with nature. Why not visit Bohol's Virgin Island!


You know, when I saw the island several kilometers away from the shore, my jaw dropped. Sand bar! White beach! Palm trees! Oh-my-goodness!!! 


Aside from the fact that it's impossible not to notice the long stretch of white sands; the rich flora, fauna, and crystal clear water were all a show-stealer. The Island’s sand bar spans around 1 hectare during low tide and on a high tide only the palm trees in the middle of the island were visible.


About 5 kilometers away from the shore, one can view the sea bed right away because the water is super clear it is as if you’re inside an aquarium. Sea grass thrive here, I mean it's everywhere! The waves were so calm, it feels like you're in a lake. Also, from the shore, in an arm's reach, one can see a variety of fishes swimming in the shallow water.


This unique island can be reached via boat ride from Panglao in about 20-25 minutes. Plus, if you're in to some exotic gastronomy, the locals sell a bounty of live sea urchins here.
