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.

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
