A gem in the Pacific waving with its pristine waters and white sand beach before your eyes!
Guyam Island is the closest among the other islands near the shoreline of General Luna, Siargao Island. You can appreciate its gift with its white sands beach forming a white line in your naked eye with coconut trees filled the island. This cute island became the center of attraction as you stand in the shoreline of General Luna. One drifter has to say that during low tide a group of professional divers challenges to cross the sea by walking and land on the white island. The island is surrounded by its pristine waters anyone will entice to swim the whole day.
While there, you can give sights to other gems waving near where you stand, and experience the same feeling jumping to other beautiful spots. I am referring to other neighboring treasures that you want to embark are Daku Island, Naked Island, and Corregidor Island.
Happy islands hopping!
