The Manjuyod sandbar - the maldives of the Philippines by Christian LeBlanc, Droneheroes and Atmosphere Resort

Sandbar and Dolphin Watching

Manjuyod Sandbar

Bais, a city north of Dumaguete and approximately 2 hours north of Atmosphere is situated on a part of Negros island where the coastline curves back on itself creating a bay and the Tañon Strait opens up before it. In the middle of the bay sits the gorgeous and pristine Manjuyod Sandbar. The sandbar is only a 15/20 minute boat trip from Bais pier, there are cottages you can rent for the day or just chill on the boat and sand with a picnic lunch provided by Atmosphere and take advantage of the beautiful panoramic views of mountainous Negros and neighbouring Cebu Island.

Dolphin Watching

The Tañon Strait and this area in particular is also the natural habitat of several dolphin species that you can watch from the boat early in the morning. You may encounter the Pan Tropical Spotted Dolphins, Bottlenose Dolphins and Long Snouted Spinner Dolphins. You can pair these two trips to make one epic day trip that you would surely remember forever.
