Kanaway Beach is located at Sitio Petisan, Barangay Apad at the eastern side of the island facing Pacific Ocean. It is popular with its fine golden sands and natural sandy ripples. The golden sand is due to the abundance of corals with scientific name, Acropora caroliniana, along the nearby sea. Kanaway beach also has nearby rocky islets called Pulo and Manlanat.
Pulo is accessible by foot during low tide and at high tide, the water is waist-high. Manlanat is a bird sanctuary. Because the beach faces east and because of its sand color, the beach is called "The Sunrise Beach of Jomalig".
Salibungot Beach is located at Sitio Salibungot, Barangay Talisoy at the western side of Jomalig facing Lamon Bay. It is popular with its fine golden sands with a pinch of pink sands that become noticeable on sunsets. Aside from its fine sands, this beach also has abundant pine trees at its center which makes this beach suited for camping. Because the beach faces west and literally turns pink at sunset, Salibungot beach is called "The Pink Sunset beach of Jomalig". Wiki
