Camiguin is one beautiful island which you can tour in a single day, On a non-festival visit, it is very relaxing, with people not worrying about the stress that city dwellers have to undergo like the trafffic, with green predominating the background, with you breathing fresh air. Don't miss the zip line near the pier.

Went here for 5 days. It poured rain for 3.5 of those days. We tried to fit as much in the sunny day as possible and because it's a Small island that was fairly easy. It would have been nice to get three full days touring. We hired a scooter driver to take us around. For 1300php we got to... More

After visiting some of the most popular islands and destinations in the philipines, we stopped in camiguin for a couple of nights. As you arrive you can feel there is a different air here. Come to camiguin if you like nature, snorkel, and driving your motorbike. There is direct flight from cebu once a day, and Ferry from Bohol. You... More

Lived here for a significant time some years ago. There are the usual places that visitors frequent and which are discussed on this site. I used to find good coral snorkling just off the 'beach' at Sagay - especially when the sun was directly overhead - showing the coral in all its detail. Bring sunscreen. There are many out of...

One of the most beautiful island to visit in mindanao. The place is unique, clean and organize. There's a lot of spots to visit and see. The island is not so big and if you will bring your car you can drive the whole island round for a day. It's really an adorable and great place to relax and spend... More
