Manjuyod Sandbar: The Shallows

Off the coast of Negros Oriental, some 67 kilometers north of Dumaguete City, there is an amazing natural beauty that is constantly drawing visitors and sandbar chasers all throughout the year. Most people call these shallow parts of Manjuyod as the Maldives of the Philippines. The Shallows on a low tide, unveil an area of white sand, more like a naked island in the middle of TaƱon Strait.

It is an emerging tourist destination in this part of Negros Island. Tour operators generally offer a side trip to the Manjuyod Sandbar in their Bais dolphin-watching package. The Shallows are nearer to Bais City than the town proper of Manjuyod.
