Carbin Reef Island: Basking Under the Sun of a Huge White Sandbar
Sooo, I finally got the chance to take a breather and the province of Negros Occidental is the first place that I was able to visit. Thank God, it’s already summer. Although this was just a side trip, the experience was unbelievably amazing. I wasn’t expecting this trip at all, but I’m sooo happy that I did experience it.
It was Friday when we visited this beautiful island of Carbin Reef situated in Sagay, Negros Occidental. It has been said that it is Sagay’s Marine Reserve so it’s a protected area of the Philippines. No wonder, it’s such a beaut! OMG! It is bare and uninhabited island made of heaven. I mean if you look at it, honey, no need for filters.
The island is nothing more than a sandbar. Although there are few cottages built for rentals ( I think), but it’s also okay if you’ll just drop in, feel the sand on your toes & just enjoy yourself basking under the sun. If you love nature, you’ll appreciate the untouched beauty of Carbin Reef.
We were there at around 8 in the morning & the sun was crazy hot, not to mention I forgot to put on a sunscreen. That’s why I had a very painful sunburn the next day.
