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.more
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.more
After a dip in a very,very ice cold water,next comes the Ardent Hot Spring which is a 40 deg C spring coming directly from Mt.Hibok-Hibok.They say the water here is therapeutic.But for us,many of us got colds in the evening from dipping in the hot and cold spring.Hehehe.But its worth the trip,believe me!more
This was a restaurant(I forgot the name) near the wharf w/c is surrounded by a lagoon with fishpens standing on stilts.Our guide ordered for us an assortment of seafoods and fruits.If not for the view,I wouldn't enjoy our stay there coz the food is less delicious.I enjoyed looking at hte assorted huge fish and manta ray found in their fishpens.
Tired of going to the club? Just buy some drinks in the nearest store, create a bonfire, bring music and dance with your firends!
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...more
If you're looking for festivals during your trip, October is a great time to come to Camiguin Island. The Lanzones festival takes place at this time, a yearly island celebration to honor and give thanks to a delicious tiny fruit in the Lycee family which grows abundantly and with such richness of sweetness and texture unmatched anywhere else in the entire country. This is because of Camiguin's benevolent mineral-rich volcanic soil together with an endless supply of excellent water from her varied underground springs which make everything grow at this place as tho without end. The festival which brings the natives in full force and visitors alike into town takes place around the middle of October when the harvest of Lanzones is at its peak. There is a colorful parade for this celebration where every man, woman and child dresses up in garbs of naturalistic attire decorated with leaves, flowers and the essence of Lanzones and choreographed ritualistic dances are performed.
Luggage and bags:
Bring your plastic bags to separate your dry clothing from the wet ones.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Since Camiguin is full of water as tourist attractions,I suggest you bring your swimsuit,towels ,snorkels,and aqua shoes.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: In my experience,I think you should bring with you your decongestants,analgesics and antipyretics after dipping alternately in hot and cold spring.You might catch a cold or headache like I did.
Photo Equipment: And of course,don't forget your camera to shoot those breathtaking views.
Tuasan falls is 25-meter high strong waterfalls and a must see at Camiguin. The trail to the waterfall was not so clear. When we got near the place, a local volunteered to guide us (for a tip) and she was very helpful. Another good thing about hiring a local guide: she will ask another friend to watch your vehicle! The trek is about 10-15 minutes walk and you can pass by big rocks, plants, etc... along the way.
