Camiguin, Philippines

The name “Camiguin “ is derived from the word “Kamagong,” the name of a tree in the ebony family. Original inhabitants of the island were the Manobos from Surigao. It can be considered as the Hawaii of the South East Asia as this island was created by volcanic eruptions and land movements. It has a total of seven volcanoes, one of which is the active Mount Hibok-Hibok that last erupted in 1953. Having been blessed by natural wonders and historical treasures, the island is truly a paradise.

Among the most famous landmarks of Camiguin is an uninhabited white island that is around two kilometers off the shore of Agoho. It is actually a sandbar that offers a picturesque view of Mt. Hibok-Hibok. This sandbar submerges substantially during high tides. Here are the sites to visits: Kibila clam sanctuary, kibila white beach, Benoni Lagoon, Katibawasan Falls, Hiok-Hibok, Hot Spring, Walkway to old volcano, Sunken Cemetery, Ruins of Gui-ob Church, Soda water swimming pool, Sto. Nino Cold Spring and Tuasan Falls.
