Attraction details
Owner description: The whole capital of Camiguin, with its cemetery, sunk under the sea. In the following years, the sunken land and the gravestones can still be seen. when the tide is low. But in 1948 until 1953, Mount Vulcan erupted again, sinking the whole area deeper, to around twenty feet. In 1982, a large cross was built on the solidified lava to mark the site that became the graves of the ancestors of the Camiguin people. It has become a sunken cemetery.

We had a really fun Tom here with the local people taking great photos of us. In some we were flying on Harry potters broom. Holding up the cross. Walking up the volcano. The best is our son being a giant and holding us in his hands. It is also a very nice scuba and snorkelling site. There is coffee available and many low priced souvenirs.
The photos taken here have been the highlight of our trip so far. Geoff is very talented. We gave him some money but he did not ask for it and was reluctant to accept.

Visit the place in the morning,so you will enjoy taking pictures before the soaring sun's heat strikes. You'll see from here the Mt. TibokTibok. Can't forget about this place are the "bankeros" (boatmen). Really, they gave an spare effort to take pictures for us, diffrent angles, tricks, different pose and they each proved that Camiguin people are welcoming and tourists oriented.

It was raining so we were afraid to take the small boat going to the cross. It would have been better if we had a closer look. The area was clean and the people were nice. The next time we come back we will take the boat.

Rocks around the cross can close to your knees while swimming around the cross
Plus climbing platform to where cross is located is very slippery take care

its different from other cemetery, it is just for a photo op.There are trick shots for most guests who visited with the help of the boatmen who take extra effort of their service to take pictures in different positions and angles plus a camera trick.
