Ever been to Siargao, The Surfing Capital of the Philippines? Then you should also try walking in the white sands of Naked Island. Just like the White Island of Camiguin, Naked Island of Siargao doesn’t have any plants or trees growing except for some small bushes around it.
It is probably one of the top tourist spots in Siargao because of the beautiful scenery that you can only find in the island.
Naked Island is one of the three islands visible from the shores of General Luna, Siargao. The other two are Dako Island and Guyam Island. Dako Island is the biggest of the three while Guyam Island is the tiniest.
Naked Island got its name from the sense that there is nothing on it aside from a few bushes. It’s just an island of powdery white sands and crystal-clear water surrounding it.
During high tide, Naked Island becomes smaller because other parts sink a few feet below sea level, so it’s much better for tourists to go during low tide. This time, the island is more perfect, like a white paradise where you can just lie down and enjoy the sand.
Visitors who want to see first-hand the pure white sand can go to Naked Island by traveling from Cebu to Siargao by air. From Siargao, they can travel to General Luna Pier and hire a boat that will take them to the three islands including Naked Island.
A trip to Naked Island is an opportunity to see the rich islands of Siargao and a conglomerate of reefs and white sandy beaches. It really appeals to nature lovers and adventure seekers alike.
