Fly the zipline than catch your fish for dinner

The food is overpriced. For dining in wooden huts over the water you will be charged extra. Rooms are ordinary and functionally. For interest is the zipline over the lagoon about 740 mtrs. and 360 mts. ending in the resort. There was a promo.

Mostly fishes from their pens are served but we ordered their Calamares and Chicken and Pork Dishes! Funny thing is that we both ordered Grilled and Barbecued Chicken! The only difference is that the 'barbecued' one has ketchup in it, nothing more than the grilled one! But I have to say, their Buko Shake (Coconut Smoothie) is just remarkable!

Waiting for the ferry to leave, we had lunch here and ordered the local fish. One was broiled, and the other was served with sweet and sour sauce. A salad completed our lunch. One of the best meals we had traveling.

This is where we always have either the first or the last meal of the trip because it is so close to the port.

Unfortunately in an island surrounded by the sea this is the only place you can appreciate the bounty from the sea. You can try there zip line which is also interesting.

as i roam the camiguin island you cannot find a better restaurant except J and A fishpen. so as soon as you pass by be sure you have a full tank of stomach because around the island you cannot find a better eatery. they serve filipino foods and the place is nice and relaxing.

After touring Mantigue Island it is now time to have lunch. And the perfect way to do it is by eating the fish names that you just learned. You get to eat them! We ordered all different kinds of fishes and also buko juice which only costs P20 each. It has a nice view in the back where you can... More
