Traveling A–Z: Camiguin
By Henrylito D. Tacio
November 6, 2010, 5:12pm



Mount Hibok-Hibok

"A remote, unspoiled paradise” is how “All-Asia Travel Guide” describes Camiguin, an island-province approximately 90 kilometers north of Cagayan de Oro City.

The province is literally “born of fire” as it has more volcanoes than municipalities. Camiguin has only five municipalities (Catarman, Guinisiliban, Mahinog, Mambajao, and Sagay) but it has seven volcanoes (Mount Vulcan Daan, Mount Mambajao, Mount Karling, Mount Uhay, Guinisiliban Peak, Tres Marias Mountain, and Mount Hibok-Hibok). Not surprisingly though, it has earned the distinction of having the most number of volcanoes per square kilometer than any other island on earth (it has a total land area of 238 square kilometers).

This tiny island has a lot of attractions, ranging from green forests and mythical volcanoes to eternal hot and cold natural springs, from pristine patches of black and white beaches, majestic waterfalls, exotic marine life and blue-ridge mountains, to serene surroundings.

Going around the island’s 64-kilometer circumferential road on a motorbike is sheer fun — and highly recommended by locals. Motorbikes may be rented at reasonable rates in the capital town of Mambajao.

Fast facts

Camiguin is number seven in the top diving spots in the world. It is also famous for its craftworks. Blessed with a natural artistry and abundance of a variety of handicraft materials, the people have long been making baskets, pottery, metal works, and other products.

Camiguin is known for two activities: Lanzones Festival and Panaad.

Lanzones Festival — in honor of the tropical fruit that grows profusely in the island — is celebrated every year in October with a weekend of street dancing, parade, and pageants in the town of Mambajao.

Points of interest:

Katibawasan Falls — Some five kilometers southeast of Mambajao at the foot of Mount Timpoong, the falls tumble down into a green pool; ideal for a refreshing swim. Giant ferns decorate the surrounding land, carpeting for space with huge trees and dropping vines.

Tuasan Falls — Located six kilometers northeast of Catarman, the pool below the waterfalls is deep and clear. The surrounding scenery is unspoiled and perfect for a peaceful picnic; the only sounds around you are those of the tumbling falls and running water.

Bura soda water swimming pool — It’s only here where you can swim in a pool of soda water. It has great scenery over the fields and the seas as its cold water is refreshing to bathers and picnickers. Located in Bura, Catarman.

Ardent hot springs — A government-run resort located at the foot of Mount Hibok-Hibok, the place has a four-tiered pool of varying depths and warmth.

Tangub hot springs — Located 12 kilometers west of Mambajao, it is a volcanic hot spring below the sea bed. The small area is formed by a pool of sea stones and corals and is completely undeveloped. Water temperatures turn from cold to lukewarm, warm and hot as the tide changes.

Sto. Niño cold spring — Located four kilometers north uphill of Catarman proper, it has a pool measuring 25 meters by 40 meters and 1/2 meter deep of cold spring water sprouting from its sandy bottom.

Santo Rosario Church — An old church which was built in 1882 that is found in Sagay.

The sunken cemetery — Marked by a large white cross, this has a superb sunset and an ideal place for snorkeling and diving.

Ruins of San Roque Church — Located in Gui-ob, Bonbon, Catarman, this church was ruined by the eruption of Old Vulcan Daan in 1871. It is a monument with thick century-old walls, belfry, and convent reminiscent of the second Spanish settlement established in 1697.

Mount Hibok-Hibok — The only active volcano in the island has a 1,250-meter slope. A crater lake and stream serve as outlets in many places at the peak. A clear view of the entire island and Bohol beyond can be seen on clear days.

White Island — Also known as Medan Island, it is located two kilometers across from the beaches of Agohay and Yumbing. Aside from the fact that the island is purely white sands, it also vanishes during high tide.

Mantigue Island — This island, located three kilometers offshore across from Hubangon and San Roque in Mahinog, is only four hectares with evergreen forest, fringed with white granule sand beaches. A fishing village is found in the north of the island. One side of the island is a white sand beach with coral offshore, and the opposite side provides a deep drop-off for snorkeling and diving.

Taguines Lagoon — Located at Benoni, Mahinog. This is a man-made lagoon mantled by limpid water, large cliffs and gently rolling hills. The brackish water is engulfed by a century-old crater; ideal for boating and fishing.

How to get there:

Camiguin is accessible by air and sea from Cebu City; but trips are limited only. Most fly in to Cagayan de Oro City, which is 84 kilometers away from the port of Balingoan. For those who would like to bring their own vehicles to Camiguin, some of the ferryboats at Balingoan Port can transport cars, pick-ups, vans, and even large trucks to Benoni Port.

White Water Action

White water rafting and kayaking are the newest action sports in the Philippines. For decades, while adventure-hungry travelers flocked to the rivers of Nepal and Borneo, the superb rapids of the Philippines lay undiscovered. But that's changing fast: white water action is now available on half a dozen rivers in the Visayas and Mindanao, and more are being explored.


White Water Adventure Destinations

* Bubunawan/Cagayan de Oro River, Misamis Oriental
* Tibiao River, Panay
* Calbiga River, Samar
* Tacloban
* Chico River, Tuguegarao


Exploring

Caving

Some of the most spectacular sceneries in the Philippines lie deep underground. Almost every island has cave sytems, some accessible to the casual tourist, others challenging the skilled spelunker. Beneath the earth lie rivers and waterfalls, narrow passages, and vaulted chambers filled with a surreal array of limestone and crystal formations. Many caves are totally unexplored, presenting the ultimate thrill in adventure travel: the chance to walk where no human has ever been.

Must explore Philippine caves in:

* Peñablanca, Cagayan
* Boracay, Aklan
* Sagada, Mountain Province
* Bukidnon


Mountain Biking

From the mountains of Baguio to the beaches of Boracay, the Philippines is a perfect place for two-wheeled travel. The fat-tyred bike is a great way to explore remote areas where few vehicles go. There are endless routes available, on roads and on trails, from easy day rides to grueling week-long mountain adventures. Biking is a rapidly growing sport here: clubs of dedicated mountain bikers are springing up in many popular areas, and competitions are common. The local bikers are friendly and accommodating, and always willing to share information and rides along their favorite routes.

Explore challenging biking trails in:

* Baguio City, Benguet
* Boracay, Aklan
* Davao
* Iloilo
* Sagada, Mountain Province
* The Cordillera
* Banaue, Ifugao
* Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental
* Guimaras
* Mt.Apo, Davao Del Sur
* Samal Island, Davao Del Sur


Sea Kayaking

Sea kayaking is a new sport in the Philippines, but with 7,107 islands offering every conceivable variety of tropical seascape, it is one that is sure to expand quickly. The islands offer thousands of kilometers of superb paddling on crystal-clear water, taking in exotic villages, pristine beaches, coral reefs, and mangrove swamps along the way. The kayak, silent and unobtrusive, is the perfect way to explore these delicate ecosystems without disturbing wildlife or the peace of nature. For those seeking more extreme hills, the rugged east coast provides monster waves and fine rough-water kayaking.


Sea Kayaking Destinations:

* Caramoan Islands, Camarines Sur
* Samar
* Palawan
* Siargao

Surfing

The Philippines offers surf for all levels. La Union on the northwest coast of Luzon, four hours north of Manila, is easy to get to, has good accommodation and food, and offers gentle beach breaks perfect for beginners. Baler and Infanta in Quezon, and Daet in Camarines Norte offer a more adventurous experience, with longer travel and bigger waves. For surfers seeking the extreme edge, the wild east coast is the place to be.

Surfers' Paradise Found Here:

* Baler, Quezon
* Samar
* Infanta, Quezon
* Daet, Camarines Norte
* Catanduanes
* Siargao
* Tandag, Surigao del Sur

Dive

The Philippines is a scuba diver's dream come true. The warm waters surrounding the Philippines 7,107 islands present an underwater wildlife extravaganza, so spectacular that divers return for an average of 10 trips each.

Dive into crystal clear waters underwater visibility of up to 60 meters, discover shipwrecks, cliffs covered with sponges, colorful corals, gorgonians, turtles, sharks, rays, and even the very rarely seen exotic fishes like Spanish Dancer, harlequin ghost-pipefish, camouflaged frogfish and fire gobies. Thanks to the convergence of the nutrient rich waters of the Pacific Ocean, South China Sea and Celebes Sea, you will be a spectator to an aquatic symphony of over 2,000 species of marine fish as well as more than 400 out of the 500 known coral species in the world.

Top Dive Destinations:

* Balicasag Island, Bohol
* Apo Island, Negros Oriental
* Malapascua Island, Cebu
* Tubbataha Reef National Park, Palawan
* Sarangani Bay
* Mactan Island, Cebu


Going to the Beach

The Philippines is Asia's Beach Capital

With 7,107 islands, and a coastline twice the length of that of the United States, the Philippines can claim to be Asia's Beach Capital. Enjoy the warm crystal blue waters of both the China Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Mention the Philippines and images of long, white sand beaches and bodies of water blessed with a variety of marine life come to mind.

Top Beaches in the Philippines:

Boracay, Aklan
Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte
Mactan Island, Cebu
Panglao, Bohol

Camiguin
Camiguin, which rhymes with "come again," has been regarded as the most beautiful island in the country. As such, it is also referred to as the Philippines' "Garden of Eden." The presence of a number of majestic waterfalls that create both hot and cold springs is only one of the many attractions of this island-paradise. The topography is unmistakably tropical but the ambience is uniquely occidental. A study in contrast, Camiguin is sure to mesmerize anyone who visits with the itch to be back again soon.
Honda Bay, Palawan
El Nido, Palawan

Pearl Farm, Davao

Pearl Farm is located in the Samal Island off the coast of Davao City, Southern Philippines. The premier beach resort, which lies in the pristine island of Samal, used to be a pearl farm.

Today, beach lovers all over the world visit this world-class beach resort for its white sand and panoramic landscape and seascape, bringing with them the memory of a lifetime — a relaxing private retreat in a tropical paradise.
Siargao
Siargao, located in the province of Surigao del Norte, is renowned for its curling waves that soar from nine to twelve feet high. It is frequented by surfers from all over the world. Besides surfing, the island of Siargao is well-known for its unspoiled beaches and its rural charm.
