The Manjuyod Sandbar is an enchanting destination that will awaken you with its natural beauty.

As you cruise the boat to the sandbar, you'll be greeted with unspoiled views of the cerulean blue sea and the lush greenery of the mangrove forest.

Besides the beauty of this white sandbar in Negros, you can also experience the magic of swimming with dolphins on your day tour. The best time to catch a glimpse of these fascinating creatures is just after sunrise when the ocean is at its calmest. They are also highly active at this time, especially in the areas where tourists tend to gather, giving you a greater chance to witness their playful antics. You can also try banana boat and swimming activities.

Although the location is beautiful, it's important to note that the area lacks any luxurious amenities you may be accustomed to in typical resort destinations. You won't find extravagant resorts, high-end hotels, or indulgent restaurants and bars. Instead, you will be surrounded by the raw beauty of nature, with bungalows built over the pristine waters. These modest bungalows are set upon stilts, offering breathtaking views of the sparkling waters. You'll find yourself living in a simple yet charming abode with no access to electricity or running water. From here, you can enjoy the serenity of the surroundings and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of this unspoiled location.
