The boat ride to and from the island was smooth. However, the life vests must be cleaned and refurbished or changed. The beach was clean , the water clear. The restrooms MUST be updated . Tourists will greatly appreciate a nicer restroom where flushing would come from a water closet and not by manually pouring water. The boatmen who guided... More

My husband and I enjoyed our short trip here. There weren't a lot of people so we got to enjoy the place. The water is clear blue and the sand is white, although with a lot of corals. We just sunbathed but there are a lot of other things to do like snorkeling, trekking and the like.

There were many people when we visited. They were noisy. When there are a lot of people visiting the island, it loses is special-ness.

It's a small island located in just above the main island of Camiguin where you can scuba dive or observe the sea turtles via boat with a glass window below it. This place is great if you want to get away from the busy life in the city. I was able to walk around the whole island in just 15... More

We took a couple of bankas out to Mantigue. The departure area from Camiguan was a muddy mess, but we were getting wet anyway. The banka ride is fun, although the motor is quite noisy. Mantique island is good for swimmers and non swimmers. We had a large group, and there were plenty of shaded picnic tables for those who... More

It's a little slice of paradise. Walk around a little way so you're on your own and you could be the last people left on earth. We went when it was quite quiet and its really amazing. Snorkeling is ok but i'd just take a book and some cold drinks! There is a small place on the island to buy... More

Visited the two islands in camiguin with my family. I recommend Mantigue over White Island. Finer sand, nipa hut cottage and lunch available. The best is snorkeling and diving in their marine sanctuary

I enjoyed this place more than White Island. The beach is quiet and is not crowded. There is a small restaurant which can cook for you (the price is quite expensive though), and there are cottages and tables for rent. The waters are not ideal for swimming though when we came because of the "lumot" (green moss) all around, making... More

The island has white powdery sand and the exact opposite of White Island because it has ample shade, from trees to huts. Food is also available on the island but it is much better if you bring your own food and water. Reminder though, always keep your trash and put it in the appropriate bin. We as travelers, should only... More
