Camiguin Island offers a variety of nature's wonderful gift. If you really want to escape from the noise of the city and want to experience seclusion at its best, then this is the island to be. No fast food chains, tall buildings and crowd like seen in the city, this island will make you go back to the basic and appreciate what you have in life. Conversing with a local makes you wonder how they spend their day or night without much source of entertainment. But still, I'm amused.
Camiguin can be toured in a day. Since we're just a couple, we hire a motorbike to tour around the island. Our first stop is the Katibawasan Falls. It is indeed mesmerizing and the water is great for a refreshing swim. Next stop is the Old volcano trail. There is a walkway and station of the cross here in which you can climb to. But since we're short of time, we just climb to the first station. Near the walkway entrance are souvenir shops which you can buy local Camiguin products. Next stop is the Sunken Cemetery. you have to pay 20 per head for a boat ride to the Sunken cemetery where the cross lies. But we just decided to appreciate it from the shore. Our last stop is the Old church ruins. Our hired tour guide/driver told us that this is the result of the volcanic eruption in Camiguin some years ago. But still, you can imagine how the structure lied there. We really want to go to the White Island but we weren't able to since it is high tide that day (poor us!) but we drove back to Katibawasan and enjoyed swimming there. We really enjoyed so much we forgot about the time and missed the last trip of the ferry! But we look at it as an opportunity to witness more of Camiguin. We just decided to spend the night in a cottage owned by a British national for a 500 per night.
Overall, Camiguin is really an ideal island escape. I really hope I could come back here someday.
