Blessed with more than one hundred islands, Tawi-Tawi is replete with splashes of sandy beaches and reef. Here is my pick of heaven on earth: an islet of exceptionally white sand with nary a cover except for some greens of mangrove and coconut. It literally made me yelp in delight. Surrounded by generous sandbars and emerald shores, paradise has been found.
