A strip of white sand 20 minutes away from the mainland, Pinamungajan is proud of this marine resource.
The islet spans one hectare during low tide and is smaller during high tide.
It sits in the middle of a municipal sea rich in marine life, and holds a spectacular view of the beauty of the town’s coastline and the Mt. Kanlaon in neighboring Negros province.
The islet is near the marine sanctuary so the area is best for snorkeling.
A few meters away from the Campalabo islet is a two-kilometer long rock formation protruding from under the sea locally called “paril”, which was formed in 1951 after typhoon Amy, one of the worst typhoons on record to hit the Philippines before supertyphoon Yolanda.
