Naked Island

Naked Island, literally nothing on it. One would ask “is this an island or a sandbar?”. It’s still beautiful. The water surrounding the island is clear and great for swimming. If you want to snorkel, there are some decent corals the tour guide can bring you to nearby.

You probably won’t spend too much time here – there is nothing here to shield you against the sun. Make sure to slather on the sun block and bring your own shelter.

The common island hopping package includes Naked Island, Daku Island, and Guyam Island. You can make a pretty epic day out of it by including the long trip to Sohoton Cave as well. Arranging a tour is easy, because you will receive many offers as you walk around the main town of General Luna.
