    Thanks for posting Kevin! I was in Cebu late last year and now I really am kicking myself for not going down here! Those cabins looks amazing for the price as well!

    Nice and interesting share on Sambawan Island. What is that meat on the BBQ thing you are grilling?

    I agree with you, Sambawan Island is really a paradise. I know there are so many beaches in the Philippines but Bikiran nor Sambawan hasn’t come to my ears. What more it’s location makes it accessible to other beautiful places. I’ll love to visit the Phillipines some day and explore her many islands and beaches especially Sambawan Island.

    So many beautiful spots in Sambawan! I love to snorkel and be on the water, so I think this would be the perfect getaway spot. Thanks for the heads-up on the best times of the year to travel. It’s always hard to decide since the weather where I live might differ a lot! Good luck with all of your island hopping around the Philippines!

    Gorgeous white sand beach, loving these photos! The scuba diving sounds fantastic, especially with a unique variety of sharks. Good to know about the limited electricity and tip for extra power cords!

    Wow! This looks like a mini paradise! I usually do not like the beach that much because it tends to be touristy and over crowded, but this seems like a great place for an escapade! Thanks for all the tips about the electricity and the food, definitely useful to know in advance.

    Sambawan Island looks beautiful although it does sound like a bit of a mission to get there. Thank you for the useful information about food and electricity. Good luck with crossing the rest of the islands off your list.

    I’ve only been to 3 of Philippines 7000 islands, looks like I’ll have to make it to Sambawan some day. Great tip about bringing aqua shoes – sharps rocks can hurt! Good to know that electricity isn’t available 24/7

    Sambawan Island looks like a stunning Philippines destination. I like the idea of taking a Jeepney from the airport. Snorkeling and scuba diving is an activity I would definitely choose.

    I always love visiting islands as they are beautiful and relaxing. Now I have one more spot to put on my bucket list: Sambawan Island! This place looks so beautiful through your lens. The water is so clean and blue, and the BBQ one looks so yummy. I’d love to try kayak there 🙂

    This is such an exclusive experience of a beach life in Sambawan Island. Its quite interesting that you have to carry everything including your food. The electricity facility is also limited , but i think that its manageable. I would love to spend a few days in this island for sure only because of its exclusivity, peacefulness and scenery.
