Manjuyod Sandbar

Top choice in Negros

An exquisite narrow 7km stretch of sand exposes itself at low tide in the waters northeast of Bais City. Boats leave from Capiñahan port in South Bais Bay (P2500 to P3500 for 10 people for the day, 15 minutes). Be sure to time your visit with low tide when the sand becomes visible.
