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.

I thank God He created such a beautiful place. I was so amazed with the beauty, scenic view, fantastic beach with a forest at the center, big old trees were preserved where the government continue to develop it. The beach was so clean no trash. We strolled the whole island and we enjoyed swimming.

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.
