Mantigue Island, Camiguin

4.1
#3 of 10 in Nature in Camiguin
Just a short boat ride from Camiguin, Mantigue Island attracts tourists with its white sand, blue water, and a lush backdrop so typical of the Philippines. Coral reefs and exotic marine life thrive just offshore, but look for the drop-off if you want to dive a little deeper. Avid snorkelers may also want to check out the marine sanctuary nearby, which allows you to swim with creatures like sea turtles in their natural setting. Consider taking your own food and drinks, since the island does not offer many amenities. To visit Mantigue Island and other attractions in Camiguin, use our Camiguin trip itinerary planner.

    Mantigue is one of those islands that I always visit at least once a year. I'm so glad to have visited this island more than once this year and I can't wait to come back soon. Truly paradise!  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.
