    You can go the white sandbar by renting a boat for Php 500. It is an awesome island with nothing but white sand and rocks around. There's a great view of Mt. Hibok hibok there that you should miss to take photos of.

    Scooter Rental

    by Donnysnice Written Jan 30, 2008

    Camiguin Highland Resort provides a Scooter Rental Service. This is a great way to tour the island. It is alot of fun and you can go anywhere on the Island. Beware, for the sensitive skinned people like myself, it is not a good idea to wear shorts on an all day trip. You can get quite a Sunburn.

    Sunken Cemetery

    by Jenski Written Apr 28, 2007

    Lying 20 feet underwater in Barrio Bonbon, Catarman lies the sunken cemetery, the remains of a volcanic eruption.

    Islanders bring flowers and candles as an offering to those who once were buried there. For those who want to take a closer look, there are bancas that can be rented to take you to the site of the cross.

    Take a banca (outrigger) to this sandbar. The length and shape of it depends on the tide, it's absolutely beautiful with it's powdery white sand, and view of Mount Hibok-hibok. There are canopys to protect you from the sun, the water is crystal clear and ideal for snorkeling.

    The cemetery in this spot sunk during a volcano explosion in 1871. It has since become a popular divespot because of the gravestones underwater. I shudder as I imagine being underwater in eerie silence amidst those tombstones. Nope, not for me, thank you very much! :)

    This is probably the most amazing falls I've ever seen so far.It is a 250-ft falls cascading down a rocky pool surrounded by ferns and orchids. The pool has a freezer-cold water....brrrrrr!But you'll soon get used to it.This is also a good place for picnics.

    White Island

    Mt. Hibok-Hibok
    1 more image

    White Island is a sand bar that is usually visited during low tide coz there's not much of an island during high tide.It has the backdrop of Mt. Hibok-Hibok and Old Volcan.It can be reached by a 10-minute boat ride fromYambing area.It's a good place for snorkling,sunbathing but one can't stay too long coz there are no trees or shades,just make-shift huts to place you things.

    Discover Camiguin Island.

    by EricLe_Rouge Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This 'Island Paradise' of Northern Mindanao is blessed by Mother Nature with more than its fair share of natural wonders. Beautiful beaches, breathtaking dive spots which are perfect for scuba diving and snorkeling, numerous waterfalls, hot and cold springs await the adventurous traveler in Camiguin.

    Shape like pear, this tiny island province is one of Mindanao's top tourist attractions. One can go mountain climbing and volcano hopping, as the island has seven volcanoes.

    Seasoned mountain climbers will find Mt. Hibok-Hibok, the only remaining active volcano, a challenge. A panoramic view of Camiguin and of its neighboring island, Bohol rewards the mountaineer who successfully ascends its 1,250-meter slope. In barangay Bonbon, Catarman, visitors will come across church ruins, a living remnant of an earthquake and volcanic eruption which devastated the island in 1871. A sunken cemetery, also the reminder of the said quake is found along the coastline of Catarman town-some graves from this cemetery are visible during the low tide.

    MUNICIPALITIES

    Camiguin island is composed of five (5) municipalities namely: Mambajao (the capital town); Catarman; Sagay; Guinsiliban; and Mahinog. Camiguin has two (2) other attractive islets better known as 'White Island' and 'Mantigue Island'. Each of these has a unique endowment.

    Instead of getting a tour or a guide, rent a motorcycle and discover the island all by ourself in a day or two! But be sure to get an island map from the local tourist office.
