Honda Bay is one of those places in the Philippines where you can truly go island-hopping (unlike other places where the boatman just brings you to various beaches on the same island). And one of the islands you can hop to is Snake Island. Some people who have been there may wonder why the island is named that way but if you look at it from above (like in Google Maps) or have walked its whole length, then you can see that Snake Island is an apt name. (Worm Island would also be a descriptive name, but I doubt that people would want to go there if that was its name. Hehehe.)
The island’s very lengthy sandbar is about 3 kilometers long (I measured it using Google Earth) and I’ve read that some parts of it gets submerged during high tide. If you want to visit it (as well as the other islands in Honda Bay) and want to learn more, then this ClickTheCity article and the comments therein might prove valuable. More information can also be found in this WaypointsDotPH narrative.
Snake Island is actually only the second island in Honda Bay that I’ve featured here on Vista Pinas, the first is Arreceffi Island where the 5-star Dos Palmas Resort is located.
