It was summer when we decided to get wet and hop to the nearest island in Jasaan. It is an off the beaten tourist destination. It still has to gain popularity with the beach combers and sun worhippers. The island is an alternative destination with the least cost and less travel time compared to boracay or bohol.

The White Island is known also as The Agutayan Fish Sanctuary. It is located about 5 kilometers from the municipality of Jasaan. The white island facing Macajalar Bay is about 5,000 square meters with pure white sand. The island is ideal for snorkeling, scuba diving and swimming.

Why go far, when you can go near?

ok lang if hindi masyadong na popromote ang agutayan island namin para iwas polution na rin... we dont only have agutayan island, we have natural water spring pool, we have sagpulon waterfalls, we have oldest houses way back early 40s and im proud i love one of that houses. our house was built in 1942. world war pero that time sabi nila cozi wasnt born yet at that time... parang skeleton pa daw. ngayon im proud when people pass by our house and they would comment na baka haunted house daw, kasi nga, built in 1942 pa. try to visit our place...
