Nothing Virgin here

Too crowded. Small beach in midst of sea, can be reached via boat tour only. Once you are there it has a scenic view. Can spend about an hour taking pics

You can visit it for free but you have to wait for a special yellow boats and this is a very long time. Better to take it along with a tour to Balicasag island or separately.

They should change the name of this Island. Not a virgin at all. Lots of tourist and make shift cottages where vendors grill food. Would have been better without the crowd and the vendors following you around disturbing your peace.

We got there around 9am and it's going high tide already. There were sea urchins being sold along the shore. Love love love this island. Really lovely💕 peaceful and calming. Definitely a must! You can go there by boat, we rented a boat exclusively for us 3 (siblings) which is 1800 pesos - the price of the island hopping tour.... More

I went to Virgin Island before and the place is not yet closed but when I visit again, it become crowded and dirty. There's vendors on the sandbar and you can't find the best place to get a nice view for photos.
