The sandbar of Manlawi Island in Caramoan, Camarines Sur was one of the most gorgeous sandbars I have seen around the Philippines.  I wasn’t prepared for such stunning scenery when we first moored our boat off the shore. The water had receded for quite a distance revealing crystal clear waters and a vast stretch of rippling white sand. It was low tide during our visit, the perfect time to enjoy its sweeping sands and blue green waters.

Except for few small nipa huts, there wasn’t a single structure on the shore. It was pure nature – verdant rolling hills in the distance, an immense blue sky and a lovely seascape. So how do you enjoy a place like this other than swimming?
