Barely 240 square kilometers in land area, Camiguin is home to seven volcanoes. Lovely little Camiguin is the island “born of fire”, since much of the island was formed through earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
Despite that, Camiguin’s natural attractions keep visitors coming. White Island, a sandbar, and Mantigue Island, a smaller island off the shores of Camiguin, are great for swimming, snorkeling, and diving. Cool, refreshing waters amid trees, ferns, and boulders can be found at waterfalls like Katibawasan Falls or the more remote Tuawasan Falls. Its steep volcanoes are a trekker’s challenge, with one of them rising to a peak of more than 1,600 meters. There are forests and dive sites for exploring, too. This island is a nature lover’s theme park.
By Air. There are regular flights from Manila to Cagayan de Oro. From there, a bus ride to Balingoan and finally a barge or ferry ride take you to Camiguin island.
By Sea. Cagayan de Oro is also accessible by ferry from Manila, with the same route going to Camiguin upon arrival.
