Camiguin Island, Camiguin

4.5
#1 of 96 in Nature in Mindanao
The second smallest in the archipelago, Camiguin Island abounds with white-sand beaches, pristine turquoise sea, steep volcanoes, and fresh exotic fruit. Walk along the fine sandbars and admire the vista of endless horizons, keeping an eye out for the "sunken cemetery," destroyed in a volcanic eruption and marked with a simple cross sticking up from the sea. You can also hike over seven volcanoes boasting waterfalls and alluring vegetation. While trekking in the lavish nature, look for the grape-sized lanzone fruit with translucent flesh and light brown skin--the sweet fruit comes as a welcome refreshment. If the fruit doesn’t do the trick, dip into the cold springs hidden amid the tropical forests.

    Was supposed to stay for 4 days on this island, left sadly after 10, and am already making plans to return. Definitely the highlight of a months trip travelling in Philippines.  more »

Where to stay in Camiguin

Although a little off the beaten path, Camiguin certainly offers visitors a fair share of lodging options. The island boasts a number of resorts, ranging from high-end to mid-range and budget bungalows and cottages--you can even stay in a treehouse. Most of the places to stay on Camiguin lie beachside, along its northern coast, but you can find a couple of options inland as well, offering easy access to some of the island's famous natural sights. Camiguin can get busy in the high season, so it might be best to book ahead of time if visiting from March to May.
