Camiguin

Insider tip for adventurers

The small volcanic island of Camiguin is considered an insider tip in the Philippines and enchants nature lovers and snorkelers in particular. Black lava beaches, colorful coral gardens, waterfalls and hot and cold springs are on the program here.

Camiguin is located north of the Mindanao coast and is also known as the Galapagos of Southeast Asia.

Volcano climb

Camiguin has more volcanoes per square kilometer than any other island in the world. There are a total of 7 volcanoes from Camiguin, the best known of which is the Hibok-Hibok. This can be climbed within three hours. We also recommend a guide for experienced hikers, as sometimes the right paths are not easy to find.

Waterfalls & springs

Camiguin can be circled with a scooter in just 3 hours. To see the highlights of the island, however, 3 days should be planned. Because, the list of natural wonders is long: the Katibawasan Waterfall, the cold springs Macao Cold Springs and Sto Ninjo Cold Springs, and the hot springs Ardent Hot Springs. Tip: The Ardent hot spring is open around the clock. A visit in the dark is particularly pleasant.

White Island

The tiny island of White Island is just a few hundred meters off the coast of Camiguin. If you want to feel like Robinson Crusoe and are looking for a break on an uninhabited island, you should visit this. Nothing, except fine, white sand surrounded by the clear ocean. With a little luck, turtles can also be seen.

Giant clams

When visiting Guinsiliban, you should definitely visit the marine reserve for giant clams. The giant clams weigh up to 200 kilograms and shimmer in different colors. You can also snorkel in the marine reserve and get very close to the shells.

Sunken Cemetery

The "sunken cemetery" is the symbol of Camiguin Island. A cross in the middle of the ocean. The cross was erected after a volcanic eruption brought the actual cemetery below the surface of the sea. A place on Camiguin from which you can experience a colorful sunset. It's also great for snorkeling!
