Panam Pangan Island White Beach, also called Panampangan Beach, is actually part of the Municipality of Sapa-Sapa, Tawi-Tawi. Some also call this the "virgin beach" because only a few go here.
Panam Pangan Island and Beach News
No fear. Thats what can be said of my views on the southwestern Philippines, much more the Sulu island groups. I rarely believe the bad rep these islands get.
These stories are like ancient tales retold and rewoven by people who have not even been there, not seen the real picture and heard only "horror stories" from third party sources. Not only have they failed miserably to update old data on Tawi-Tawi but continue to use these to support biases.
Whats also annoying is the tone of articles about Tawi-Tawi that portray the islands as a lair of bandits and its people as pirates. Some of t ...
Behind the news that often puts Tawi-Tawi in bad light, this southern-most island province of the country deserve more praise than it has gained, and more visitors to leave foot prints on its white sand shores.
The Island of Tawi-Tawi has so much to offer - the beauty of its islands is something we can all be proud of as Filipinos. They are not only comparable to what Coron and Boracay can offer, its comparable to what Maldives and even the Caribbean could offer.
Among these is the Panampangan Island- a 10 hectare uninhabited white-sand beach tagged as a "virgin island."

After taking part in Tawi-tawi's much celebrated Agal-Agal Festival held in the town of Languyan, my companions and I forged through torrential rains towards the province's capital: the island of Bongao.
Tawi-tawi, the southernmost province of the Philippines, registered a tourism boom with visitor arrivals increasing three folds this year compared to that of the previous year.
The province is attracting local and foreign tourists despite Mindanao has been placed under martial law since the second quarter of this year.
President Rodrigo Duterte has placed Mindanao under martial law when the ISIS-inspired Maute terror group laid siege in Marawi City.
"In one month, we can expect more than a thousand to about three thousand tourists both from (the countrys other provinces) and from outs ...
Yes, there is another beautiful world beyond what you think of Tawi-Tawi. Not surprisingly virgin, Panampangan Island is definitely one for beachbums, photographers & those who love the languid castaway feel.
It took me three visits to Tawi-tawi before I finally set foot on the famed Panampangan Island. Its not an easy island to reach like most of the islands in the region. Hiring boats have a hefty cost especially for independent travelers. An invitation to cover the Kamahardikaan 2017 festivity includes a visit to the island. It was an opportunity thats hard to pass. Panampangan Island is considered the longest sandbar in the country.
