“must-see!”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Went to Mantigue Island via "bangka" for P550 for the round trip. Additional P200 was asked from us by the boatsmen for them to take us to the Marine Sanctuary. there were snorkels for rent by the port; we brought our own. there were some fees when we got to the island.. My friend and I stayed at the beach for a few hours prior to snorkeling at the sanctuary... the beach was just perfect; super fine white sands, waters that sparkle under the sun shine.. and very clean. The Fish Sanctuary was home to different variety of beautiful fishes. If you go to Camiguin, you must see this :)

“Wonderful spot for snorkeling and diving.”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

Snorkeling around Mantigue Island gives you fantastic views of what's beneath you in the crystal clear waters. Colorful fishes surround you, shelves of reefs look like stairs, blue starfishes everywhere. It truly was a spectacular sight. The place to be just to relax, soak some sun in, and frolic along the white sandy shores. Absolutely beautiful.

“forest within an island”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

this is an adventure that one has to experience in his lifetime. a walk through the forest in the island that has been kept as it was since time immemorial.

aside from being a good dive and snorkel site, the island offers long shore line for a peaceful sun bath to catch up on your perfect tan.

“Just can't get enough”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Boat would cost you around 500 pesos for 3 hours stay and then the succeeding hour is 100 if i am not mistaken.
a very good place to snorkel since it's a Marine Sanctuary.
If you go here you just can't say no to swimming, crystal clear waters, good visibility and fine white sands.
You can order fresh catch for lunch.
I ate Grilled shells and fish and i only paid for about 800 pesos.
on the other side of the island there's and Agar Farm and on the other side is a turtle sanctuary.
you can venture in the little forest and vegetation the island has to offer.
Don' forget to bring sunblock, beach blanket, and your snorkeling gear but if you don't own one you can rent one in the store were you pay entrance.
