Vanishing Island in Samal

Mansud Wall

We also passed by with this breathtaking Mansud Wall they called when we are on our way to Vanishing Island.

Second stop was the Vanishing Island. I just discovered that there were two Vanishing Islands in Samal. I was expecting to visit the one I saw online with a cottages on a little island that vanish during high tide and only cottages can be seen.

But then, the tour guide brought us to a very little island that was about to vanished that time. I was not disappointed because that little island were also nice and amazing. Really a small sand were only seen when we get there.

We asked the tour guide if we can swim there, it get easily deep even when you are just near on the island. They let us wear life vest and swam there for an hour. It was an amazing experience and underwater it was very rich in coral reefs and marine life.

Before we left the island, it was only an inch before it will vanish. If you want to get there - the Vanishing Island was in between Davao City and Samal Island. A pump boat ride from main Samal City was about 3 to 5 minutes.
