La meravigliosa striscia di sabbia bianca di Manjuyod Sandbar: una delle più grandi attrazioni filippine, nella provincia di Negros Orientale. La superficie di questa isola emerge solo durante la bassa marea e si trovano case in legno native costruite su palafitte. E quando arriva l’alta marea, queste case sembrano galleggiare sull’acqua.

The white sand bar of Manjuyod is a strip of pristine white sand located at about 15 minutes boat ride from the coast of Bais City, in the Negros Oriental province of the Philippines. The surface of this island emerges only during low tide and there are native wooden houses built on stilts. When the high tide comes, these houses look like they are floating on the water.

The Manjuyod Sand Bar also called the Maldives of the Philippines is considered one of the main attractions of the province, due to its specificity. The total surface of the strip it’s about 600 hectares, considering also the submerged portions.

You can rent a boat in Bais City and then enjoy this beautiful paradise during the day, or you can even stay overnight renting one of the wooden houses.






The Dolphin and whale watching is one of the well-known tourist attractions in Negros Oriental. The main area that offers dolphin watching tours in Negros is Bais City, which is located on the east coast of Negros island. Most tourists who visit Bais would combine their dolphin and whale watching with a stay on the Manjuyod Sandbar.

The best time of the day to watch dolphins is in the early hours; just after sunrise. This is the time when the ocean is calm so you could easy spot their dorsal fins. It is also the time that they are populous and active near the tourists’ area, therefore, there is a greater chance to see them.
