The local hot spa is a natural pool of about 40 degrees centigrade springing from depths of Mount Hibok-Hibok. The Municipality of Mambajao has provided cottages, restaurant and dormitory facilities that cater to local and foreign tourists. It has picnic huts, cookout facilities and restrooms for visitors.It is ideal for night swimming, a place to rejuvenate both mind and body.
Three kilometers off the shore from Barangay San Roque, Mahinog is an island four hectares of evergreen forest fringed with sandy beach. The boat ride to Mantigue is quite exciting, as one has to contend with strong diverging currents due to the open sea. One side of the island is ideal for swimming as it is shallow and has few corals. The opposite side is a deep drop off ideal for snorkeling and diving.
The 250-feet majestic beauty cascades to a rock pool surrounded by ground orchids, wild ferns, trees and boulders. Its ice-cold waters provide an ideal summer splash to locals and tourists alike. Rock picnic tables, seats and cookout facilities are available for use.
CROSS MARKER AND SUNKEN CEMETERY
Located in Bonbon, Catarman a huge cross marker has been installed by the Provincial government to mark the community cemetery that sunk during the 1871 volcanic holocaust. Years ago, gravestones were visible during low tide. Today, it is an interesting diving site.
Camiguin being a favorite summer destination and the island being abundant with coconut, one of the favorite refreshments is BUKO. The sweet coco water juice plus the succulent meat is a great relief from the summer heat.
P10.00 a piece available almost everywhere in the island.
The best time to go to Camiguin would be summer months when the sea is much calmer. The white sand bar is not on the island itself and you will have to use an outrigger to get you there. Otherwise you'll have to spend your time at the shores of the island like what my girlfriend and I did and the sand isnt exactly, uh....white. You can see the sand bar, you can almost touch it and feel it on your feet, but not quite. Anyhow, its still fun.
Camiguin's sunken cemetery has a very clear water rich with tropical fishes. I just couldn't resist taking a dip and find out what's there to see beneath the water. Nice spot for snorkeling and diving
Camiguin travelers usually drop by the foot of the 'Walkway' or the site for the Station of the Cross but most don't try to go up to the 14th station. There you get a good view of the waters below
