Best Places To Visit In Camiguin Mantigue Island Nature Park Are A Good Starting

The island-province of Camiguin is a pear-shaped volcanic island in the northern tip of Mindanao. It is approximately 90 kilometers north of the City of Cagayan de Oro. It is bounded to the north by Bohol Sea, to the west by Macajalar Bay, to the southeast by Gingoog Bay and to the east by Butuan Bay. Mambajao is the capital of Camiguin, and Catarman is the second largest town on the island. The main local language is Cebuano, also called Bisaya. English and Tagalog are also widely spoken. Camiguin has three ferry terminals: Guinsiliban, Benoni and Balbagon.

Camiguin is a real gem and feels extremely safe compared to its neighboring islands. Its landscape has been continuously shaped and reshaped by volcanic activities, giving this island paradise countless tourist attractions like cold spring, waterfalls, Mount Hibok-hibok, Sunken Cemetery and a lot more. 

The MANTIGUE ISLAND NATURE PARK, also known as Magsaysay Island, is a protected marine sanctuary in Camiguin, a pear-shaped island province in northern Mindanao. The island typically covers a total of 4 hectares of land size. It is located 3 kilometers from the shore of Barangay San Roque. 

A peaceful and calm island, the MANTIGUE ISLAND NATURE PARK offers visitors a memorable experience of clear blue waters, white powdery sands, and the chance to explore the eclectic forest of the island. Register quickly for the well organised and safe crossing. You will having a short walk around the island before taking to the water for a snorkel tour of the lovely coral reef – lots of fish, nice hard and soft corals and a good drop off going down 10m or so.

Camiguin has its own airport in Mambajao, Cebu Pacific and Philippines Airlines serves this route from Cebu City. For Metro Manila visitors, you can make your way via Butuan City or Cagayan De Oro (PAL and Cebu Pacific have daily flights from Manila to these two cities).
