Must see. And DO reserve enough time for it. The island is very small. The "front side", where the boats arrive, is more for the tourists. There's a small area where you can rent a table (or two) to sit down and have a drink or some food (bring it yourself, there's no restaurant on the island). If you're a... More

This is a must-see. White island is overrated. But the food in Mantigue is bordering extortion.... BYOF Tip: Ask your boatman to bring you to the deeper side of the fish sanctuary before heading back to the port. It is the best snorkeling jump-off rather than the long swim from the shore.

You take a boat ride from Camiguin Island to Mantigue Island. This is a small island with mangroves, make shift tables/chairs for rent. The mangroves are a welcome inclusion to shade you from the beating sun. The sand in Camiguin's shore to Mantigue is totally different in color. Like the White Sand Bar, its clear turquoise water is as inviting.... More

The white sand seems like flour in texture, the sea is clear and clean, and the whole island seems so isolated despite its closeness to the main island...the shades against the scorching sun are few huts and a lot of tall Pandanus...If you want isolated and unspoiled nature, this is it...and you pay only Php 20 for entrance

The island is a sanctuary for fish and corals. There is fantastic snorkelling, make sure you go out to the drop off, about 50 metres from the shore. There you will find a large variety of fishes. There is a basic shp that sells coffee, coke, rice and cooked pork. There are toilets on the island. There is an entrance... More
