My Favorite Places #2 - White Island



The White Island of Camiguin ranks the 2nd of my favorite places. The White Island or Medan Island as known to a few is a very small, isolated island. Its shape can be changed depending on the tide. It's just a white sand bar without trees, huts or anything. It's a plain island surrounded by the sea with the view of Mt Hibok-hibok and the mainland nearby. That's what makes the place simply beautiful.

If you go to during the off-peak season ( like we did), then most probably there'll just a handful of people on the island. Everything will be so quiet and still except the rushing of the waves and the beat of your heart amidst the turquoise sea and the greenness of the mainland you could see from afar. The experience is just awesome!

I can see that Medan island is indeed mesmerizing, with powdery sand on the beach and the clear blue sea... wow!

I had also visited Redang island in Malaysia, with white powdery sand, very clear water and lots of marine life near the shore that had added so much fun to our snorkeling trip. Just to share the photos with you too! -> Post s on Redang island, Malaysia

As You have been added to the "Big Bang" master list, officially, at #989, #990 & #991. For some reason I can't find your Big Bang posts on any of your sites. If you have already posted, please let me know the links. If not, you must come by and copy/paste the complete list back to your site. Doing this frequently assures maximum link benefit for everyone who joins. And by keeping your list current with mine you won't have to respond to individual participant requests to add them to your list.

Thanks for playing. If possible, try to get others to play also. It will benefit everyone.

In addition I would like to introduce you to 2 new sites that I have recently launched. They are both “link-love” based, but emphasize quality over quantity.

I believe that everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about. If you would like to participate in what could eventually be bigger than the Big Bang, please visit one or both of the following sites and follow the simple rules:
