Manjuyod is a municipality in Negros Oriental after Bais City. The municipality became famous because of the Manjuyod Sandbar, a must-see attraction in Negros Oriental.
The sandbar is a hidden gem in North Bais Bay. Manjuyod Sandbar became popular and was known as the Maldives of the Philippines.
It is located geographically in Manjuyod along the North Bais Bay in the Tañon Strait. The fine stunning white sandbar is 7 kilometers during low tide. It submerges into deep water during high tide. There are only 4 cottages for accommodations.
It is best to arrive early in the morning to enjoy and explore the 600 hectares of powder-white sand. Most tour operators start in Canibol Wharf in Bais City.
It is a fifteen-minute boat ride to reach the sand bar. The tour also includes dolphin watching.
After the dolphin watching, the boat goes back to the sandbar for the guests to enjoy swimming and after which, a sumptuous lunch awaits the tourist while enjoying the turquoise water and the scorching heat of the sun.
