    You can fly directly from Cebu to Camiguin with Cebu Pacific Air. From Manila and other cities, with stopover in Cebu.
    Spend a few days in Camiguin, and take a flight back...
    Interesting option : half an island tour one one day...spend a night in a local atmosphere resort at the southside of the island e.g. in Sagay...next day the other side of the island...

    A Long Haul To Reach Paradise

    The outrigger:  as constant as travel desires.

    Getting across to Camiguin Island is a mild-to-arduous way of travelling. But as with any path and direction to secluded paradiasical places, Camiguin Island is a far away destination especially for outbound international flights. The two major international airports in the Philippines are in the cities of Manila and Cebu. Most international flights land in Manila but Cebu is now a major hub as well for incoming international flights. From either Manila or Cebu, you take a 1 1/2 hour connection to the southern provincial city of Cagayan de Oro. Philippine Air Lines or Cebu Pacific have regular twice a day flights into Cagayan de Oro. Although hearing recent news thru word of mouth that soon an international airport will be opening in Cagayan de Oro itself. This will make travel time to this part of the Philippines infinitely faster and quicker reaching bypassing the inevitably infurating chaos of the bigger international airports in Manila and Cebu. Soon as this international airport at Cagayan de Oro City opens, one can then fly directly to there from the hub airports in Hongkong, Narita, Bangkok, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. The island has a tiny strip of runway serviced by the single-engine plane of SeaAir which flies into Camiguin once a week from Cebu City. Inquire with Cebu City tourist office or at the airport for SeaAir's flights. From Cagayan de Oro, one then takes a bus, hired cab or taxi to the seaport town of Balingoan - a two-hour ride - where thru a ferry is the only way to reach the island. The ferry has a lengthy daily schedule running about every hour. The main ferry landing at Camiguin is at Binoni; from here it's an easy jeepney or motorbike ride into Mambajao. There are several transport options at Binoni for the visitor to haggle with. Within the island itself, the local transport of tiny passenger-cramped jeepneys are few and far between; it is thus much advisable to rent a car or a hired driver to visit the many natural wonders of the island.
