Located at the southwestern end of Jomalig, Salibungot Beach offers a long stretch of pristine coastline with orange (golden) sand, clear blue waters, and a stunning view of the sunset. The beach is lined with agojo trees and is home to various species of birds including crows and doves. Apart from a few residential huts on one end of the beach, the area is devoid of man-made structures. It's a great spot for camping, swimming, and snorkeling, but travelers would have to bring their own gear.
Compra Beach is a two-kilometer coastline with fine golden sand and a dense forest of agoho trees. Located on the east side of Patnanungan, it has one of the best views of the sunrise on the island. The area also has an expanse of coral reefs, which makes a great spot for snorkeling (bring your own gear). There's a small fishing community nearby where you can buy fresh fish if you chance upon a good catch that day.
A 20-minute walk from the town center of Patnanungan are three contiguous beaches with fine white sand, clear blue waters, and an unobstructed view of the sunset. Leria's Beach, Dolor Beach, and Darmo Beach, which make up Patnanungan's White Beach, are all privately owned but are open to the public for free. Largely devoid of man-made structures, the beaches are ideal for camping and snorkeling (bring your own gear). During low tide, the rocky parts of the coast are exposed and you can observe a wide variety of small marine animals including snails, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, and starfish.
