MANTIGUE ISLAND, CAMIGUIN, PHILIPPINES
The “Island Born of Hearth,” that’s what Camiguin is understood for. The second smallest province within the Philippines, this small island is positioned north of Mindanao and is residence to seven volcanoes – a lot of the island was fashioned by way of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Whereas I discover the island mystical and might not be as touristy as Siargao or Siquijor, Camiguin affords its guests lots to discover – ruins, waterfalls, snorkeling, diving, breathtaking sundown, fruits, black sand seashores and white sand islets.
As for white sand seashores, right here’s one to tick off your checklist: Mantigue Island, positioned in Mahinog, 3.5km off the east coast of Camiguin Island. This islet is a protected marine sanctuary so you’ll be able to snorkel all you need or simply stroll across the island which can take you round 20 minutes or so. Carry with you your sunblock, the pristine torquoise water is simply too tempting to withstand. Since this island is likely one of the standard locations in Camiguin, native eateries abound so there’s no want to fret, you received’t get hungry after your swim. You too can hire cottages the place you’ll be able to keep and relaxation for P150.
I discovered a spot within the islet the place I may very well be alone and it was straightforward to get misplaced in the fantastic thing about Mantigue.
