Never expected that this would be the highlight of our trip. The tiny island has a lot to offer aside from beach bumming, you can explore the mini forest, dive, snorkel and mingle with the locals. It is way better than White island. The tour guide who welcomed us is so funny and bubbly!

I will always be a fan of the beautiful Mantigue Island and its blue crystal clear seawater and powdery white sand. Definitely! A must-visit when you are in Camiguin, one can't and should not miss this amazing beauty that God has blessed Camiguin and its people with. As tourists, we should do our share keep them clean, no littering and... More

While Mantigue Island is nice, it proved to be a pocket drain. 1. you have to pay for your boat to the island. 2. pay for island fee. 3. pay for snorkeling fee at the sanctuary. 4. pay for boat fee to the sanctuary (same boat that took you to the island). while the first 3 was ok, the 4th... More

We rented a motorbike and took approximately 25minutes ride from Action Geckos to San Roque port. Boat fee is for php450 for maximum of 6 people. There were only 2 of us so we asked if the next in line can share with us since he's alone. To our surprise, were not allowed to share the boat. The island has... More

Mantigue Island in Camiguin is perhaps one of the many other natural attractions in the Philippines that is under the radar of tourists. It was my partner and my first time to explore the island and we was stunned by its beauty. It's a small island off the main island of Camiguin that is reachable by a 15-minute boat ride.... More

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
