Not really into the guided tour of the giant clams out in the sea so we opted for just lounging on the beach and snorkel till the sun sets. Great time when your tour is winding down before going back to your hotel to freshen up.

I enjoyed this visit more than all other places on the Island. Entry down a very steep road some way off the highway but is very cheap, unless you want to dive. The tour guides are knowledgeable and pleasant people. The tanks are basic but many types of giant clams are there to see and discuss. They are doing very... More

This is a terrible attraction to go to. If I was by myself or just my girlfriend, I would not have given them a centavo. First you have to pay to get in which I have no problem as they are trying to collect money to preserve the giant clam. It's when you get inside when they take all your... More

If you're visiting Camiguin, this is a must. With an entrance fee of P250, you will be amazed on how these clams are protected and propagated. First, you'll hear teachings and orientations from the experts. Then you will visit the clam sanctuary from the small ones to the full grown with the assistance of their swimming guides. These clams can... More

Though we never experience snorkelling, the giant clams displayed amazed us. Plus, the tour guide explained the history and the life cycle of these giant creatures!

Its far to reach the place but if you have a private car is much better, here you can found all types of clam and they will give you enough information about every clam that you will see.

This is a less popular site in the province of Camiguin. I think the condition of the road going to this area is a major factor why the frequency of visitors is not as high compared to the celebrated spots in the province. It was quite challenging to endure a rough, stony dirt path directing to the place but it... More

I have never seen giant clams before, and with giants I am talking about clams that can grow up to more than a meter wide. You can view them in their habitat by snorkeling near the surface. The water is clear that you can observe the giant clams as well as other marine life. There's a lot of brain corals,... More

Really nice place, well set up with the only white sand beach on Camiguin Island. Two little girls took us on a tour to see the clams.

For those who love the ocean and enjoy what's beneath the surface of the ocean, this is the place for you. You will enjoy seeing the taklobo or giant clams in their natural habitat.
