Camiguin Sunken Cemetery is home to many captivating travel destinations

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. Beneath the tranquil, sunkissed waters of Camiguin, Philippines lies an underwater marvel. 

The SUNKEN CEMETERY was formed in the 1870s when a volcano erupted, tragically submerging the nearby city and its cemetery. 

Today, only a few ruins remain above sea level, including a Spanish colonial church, a convent, and a belltower. As one of the most unique diving spots in the world, visitors can explore a hidden slice of the island’s colonial history. 

This place is increadible! You'll be happy to see all the life and beauty underwater here in this part of the country. It has been declared National Cultural Treasure of Philippines. Unique, beautiful, slightly scary... and tons of fun! It is the best place to see sunset.
