Bisaya-Bisaya is a scenic beach with powdery white sand on one side and interesting rock formations on the other side. During low tide, visitors can cross over to smaller islets nearby and take a dip in a small tidal lagoon that serves as a natural pool with a view of the sea.
Sirommon Island has a fine sand beach with a sandbar ideal for swimming. There are no structures here except for a few simple beach cottages. The island contains a short hiking trail to a Sama Banguingi tribal community, which can be tapped to prepareboodle style lunches of fresh seafood like crabs, squid, fish, fresh seaweeds and clam soup.
