Exploring Camiguin Island, Philippines

BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN CAMIGUIN ISLAND

  1. The Sunken Cemetery

Perhaps the most significant place when talking about tourist destination in Camiguin Island and is an icon. During 1827, the old volcano erupted and killed hundreds of people in the island. It has swept the original cemetery and sunk 20-25 feet under the water. The volcano erupted again that sink the area deeper (story was narrated by a local). It is free to visit the area but if you want to have a closer look of the cross and stand at the foot of it, a bangka can take you there for a fee of Php 100 per person.. It is located at Barrio Bonbon, Catarman, Camiguin Island.

2. Tongatoc Cove

On our way to the Sunken Cemetery, we stopped by a cliff  where a stunning secluded cove nestled. It is surely a sight worthy to be notice with it’s deep blue water and ocean rocks inviting us to swim. But the site is only good for stop-over and to enjoy its scenic view while standing on a cliff breathing the fresh air and enjoying the mountain view as well.
