The always shifting Sandbar Beach gives beach bums plenty of space to spread out in the sun or go for a swim in the calm waters. A hike through the island's lush tropical forests will take to cliffs with views over the island's beautiful blue lagoons. Climb the lighthouse in the south portion of the island for unobstructed views in every direction.
While Sumilon's hikes and beaches are worth the three-hour trip all on their own, the main draw here is the diving. Home to the first marine sanctuary in the country, Sumilon's waters offer excellent visibility and healthy coral reefs teeming with colorful marine life.
