Yes, it's so, so hot there. But the place is so clean and you'll surely love to swim all the time. Better also to do snorkeling and that they have sanctuary of fish. A good place for bonding with friends and family and just prepare almost 600 for the fare of the boat good for 6 persons only. There is... More

If in camiguin, this is definitely the place to go!! Amazing snorkling and White sand beaches. Easy to reach with a banka, costs 550 per boat for max 6 persons. They serve fresh clams with rice, or you can bring your own food. Magnificent place!

Mantigue Island was the last place to visit in our Camiguin itinerary, but definitely not the least! For me, it was the highlight of our Camiguin trip. We went there at around 2:30 pm and we had to travel for 20 minutes from the mainland to the island. We paid 550 pesos for the boat which can carry a maximum... More

I had a wonderful time snorkeling at Mantigue Island. They have a sanctuary -a portion of the waters where it's prohibited to fish. The water is so clear and you can see the corals, the trenches, and the varied-sized fishes. With my goggles on and looking down a trench, my fear-of-heights-alarm went off! We only stayed for about an hour.... More

Very quite place, no crowd, you have to take a boat from the main Camiguin Island to reach this place. We stayed for the whole day swimming, snorkling with lots of corals to see. I would love to comeback to this place again. This place is much better than any other white islands.

If you would like to enjoy a lovely white sand island, after the black sand if Camiguin then this is the place to come to. You can also go snorkelling, no great coral or fish to see but a nice swim. You have to pay an entry/environment fee and also to sit at one of their tables, otherwise you can... More

A bit more expensive to get to tnan White island. Snorkeling lags behind Kabila beach, but if you're into sharks this might be the place for you - spotted 3 gray reefs while snorkeling.
