Bais City, Central Visayas, Philippines for Island Hopping and Dolphin Watching

This adventure is one of the best experiences I had so far in my Negros Oriental travel. It was both amazing and memorable.

Manjuyod White Sand Bar is an island towards the North Bais Bay that is located in the Tañon Strait and can only be seen during low tides. You can go there via a 15-minute boat ride from Capiñahan Wharf in the South Bais Bay, Bais City Negros Oriental.

Before we really went to the Sand Bar, we still went to the Dolphin Sanctuary and watched dolphins dance in the air like they just don’t care. The dolphins amused the tourists who were at the sanctuary at that time too. According to the boatmen who took us to the place, the sanctuary was built by a professor from Siliman University. It was an advocacy-driven act since they really want to preserve dolphins who are slowly becoming extinct in our time. A THUMBS UP for this professor!

Upon arriving in the place, you would then immediately feel like you are in a foreign island, hmm, more like the Bahamas or Maldives. The sand is very white and the waters are very clear too. It is very perfect for a summer getaway with friends and family. You can really do everything you like under the sun.

When the it’s already low tide, the very white sand bar stretches up to 7 kilometers. If you’ll be walking in the sand bar, you would also feel like you are walking in the beaches of Maldives. Pretty amazing right? Yes. It’s only in the Philippines!

Hmm, I think I would be ending here my Negros Oriental journey. Though I was able to see some amazing places during the travel from Bacolod City – Valencia, but then what I had created here are just those most amazing experiences and adventures I had in Negros Oriental. Don’t worry, I’ll still be taking you to some of the nicest places in Central Visayas! Watch out for my next Jrrny!
