With 7,107 islands, the Philippines is full of incredible natural wonders, and some of them have yet to be in the limelight. For instance, when travelers think of Negros Oriental, Dumaguete City instantly comes to mind. But this province has so much more to offer, like the so-called "Maldives of the Philippines."

How to get there

Book a flight to Dumaguete City's Sibulan Airport. Air travel will last approximately one hour. From Dumaguete City, take a bus to Bais City, the jumping-off point for boat trips to Manjuyod Sandbar. Boat rentals range from PHP 2,500.00 to PHP 5,000.00, depending on the size of the boat. Alternatively, you can also travel to Manjuyod town from Dumaguete. There are also available boats there that can take you the island.
