Photos: White Beach, Malamawi Island, Basilan

White Beach is located in Malamawi Island right across Isabela City, the capital of Basilan. This is one of the better beaches I’ve been to. Locals said the waves were bigger than normal when we went, making the water less green and less clear. But still, the place was impressive. Who knew the infamous Basilan has a hidden treasure as good as this?

A shot of the waters of White Beach. My friends say the waters look way, way better when the waves are normal. Perhaps a valid reason to go back in a few years?

        Hehehehe…their presence should not be a cause for discomfort. Their presence actually is a comfort and does give us security. We know that there is less chances that the insurgents would attack because they are there.
