Camiguin is recognized as the second smallest island in the Philippines. But even with its small size, it has a strong and intense title—"The Island Born of Fire." Home to seven volcanoes, much of Camiguin was formed through volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. But the island is not only about hot air and lava as it is also blessed with impressive wonders like beaches, waterfalls, mountains, springs, and vast lands that support its huge agricultural industry.  

One of the Camiguin's volcanoes, Mount Vulcan, erupted in 1891, leaving the old town of Catarman in ruins. Years later, Catarman has become a popular tourist site. Hikers and mountaineers from all over the world visit the province for trekking and to explore its ancient ruins. The most famous among the ruins is the Sunken Cemetery, which is submerged around 20 to 25 feet underwater. Tourists can snorkel to explore the cemetery. In addition to the underwater graves and tombstones, the area is teeming with schools of colorful fishes and corals.

The springs in Camiguin are major destinations as well. The waters of the Sto. Nino Cold Spring are around 20 degrees, enticing tourists for a dip especially during summer. Meanwhile, The Ardent Hot Spring is the exact opposite—it has six pools with varying temperatures. Soaking in the 40-degree water is perfect for those who want to calm their muscles with a warm, therapeutic bath. The entrance fees for both springs are very much affordable.

One of the main products of the province is Lanzones, a sweet fruit covered in yellow skin and grows in clusters like grapes. It is found only in Southeast Asian countries and some parts of India. Camiguin celebrates the Lanzones Festival every October to commemorate the bountiful harvest of the fruit each year.

By Air, Land, and Sea
Camiguin is an island located about 10 kilometers north off the coast of Mindanao. Getting there will require a combination of air, land, and sea travels. Visitors should fly first to Cagayan de Oro City (CDO); there are flights from Manila or from other parts of the Philippines to this city. All flights to CDO are served at the Laguindingan Airport. From the airport, there are buses, vans, and taxis available to take you to Agora Market Terminal in downtown CDO. Travel time takes about 30 to 45 minutes.
From Agora Market Terminal, ride a bus bound for the Balingoan Port. Travel time is usually two to three hours. Upon arrival at Balingoan Port, take a ferry to Benoni Port in Camiguin Island. Travel time should only take one to two hours.

How to Get Around
While in Camiguin, you can take minivans, jeepneys, motorellas (local version of the motorized tricycles), multicabs, or habal-habal to go around. You can also rent a motorcycle or a multicab for a day if you want a more comfortable experience with getting around.

What to See
Camiguin has a number of old churches and ancestral homes that treats guests with a glimpse of how life was on the island back in the day.
For starters, the town of Sagay on the southern part of the island is home to the Santo Rosario Church. Built in 1882, the church’s façade looks worn-out and abandoned. Its interiors, however, remain impressive. Most of its details and decorations are made out of sawali, bamboo, and other natural materials, which is why it is commonly referred to as the “Green Church.”
The Guiob Church Ruins, also called the “Old Church Ruins,” was built in the 16th century but was later destroyed by a powerful earthquake and the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vulcan. Today, only the foundations of the old church and its bell tower remain. There is also a newer but smaller and simpler chapel built within the ruins.
As you pass by the streets of Camiguin, your attention will be drawn to the majestic ancestral homes along the way, some of which were built during the colonial period. These houses once belonged to the ilustrados in town but now serve various purposes, from stores to offices and even homes for some of the locals.
Another landmark known in Camiguin is a large cross in the middle of the sea that  serves as a marker of the Sunken Cemetery. This unique attraction is said to have sunk when Mount Vulcan erupted between 1871 and 1875.
Natural Attractions
The island of Camiguin has been blessed with natural beauty that as alluring and dazzling as the more popular beaches in the country and even in other countries. Camiguin, with all of its unadulterated attractions, is said to be “born of fire” because of the presence of seven volcanoes scattered all over the island.
Mount Guinsiliban is the southernmost volcano, located in the town of Guinsiliban. There is also Mount Timpoon, which is said to be the largest mountain in all of Camiguin. Meanwhile, Mount Vulcan and Mount Hibok-Hibok are the northernmost volcanoes, with the latter being a favorite popular hiking destination on the island.
Off the coast of Camiguin is where you can find White Island and Mantigue Island. White Island is uninhabited, with no trees and is made up of a gorgeous white sandbar. It could get particularly hot given its lack of shade, but its beautiful waters will surely make you want to stay and enjoy a refreshing swim. Meanwhile, Mantigue Island is perfect for snorkeling or diving because of its fascinating corals.
Located about five kilometers away from Mambajao, the provincial capital of Camiguin, is Katibawasan Falls. The water drops from a height of 250 feet to a basin at the bottom where travelers can swim in the fresh waters. There is also an area at the foot of the falls where you can have a picnic or just sit down to commune with nature. Meanwhile, the Tuasan Falls, located northeast of Catarman, is also another majestic body of water that you shouldn’t miss when on the island.
Of course, a visit to the mountainous terrains of Camiguin wouldn’t be complete without relaxing in some hot springs. At the base of Mount Hibok-Hibok is Ardent Hot Springs, where visitors can soak in hot waters for a rejuvenating experience. There is also the Tangub Hot Springs located near the Sunken Cemetery, which is also recommended for diving.  
Man-Made Attractions
More than its natural beauty, the Old Volcano Trail is a favorite destination especially for pilgrims because of its life-sized statues that depict the 14 Stations of the Cross. Once you reach the end of the station and the peak of the trail, you will be greeted with an amazing overlooking view of the surrounding areas.
Events and Festivals
During Holy Week, devotees and pilgrims partake in the annual Panaad as a form of penitence. The event is marked by a 64-kilometer walk around the island, which includes the Stations of the Cross.
But among the feasts in Camiguin, the Lanzones Festival is the most highly anticipated. The festival is held every October and is celebrated by the locals as a way of thanksgiving for a bountiful harvest throughout the year. The colorful culture and tradition of the people of Camiguin are showcased through parades, pageants, and street dancing. The celebration usually lasts for one week.

Where to Eat
Casa Roca Inn is both a hotel and a restaurant found in the town of Mambajao which offers a wide array of both international and local dishes. Made with the freshest ingredients, the dishes are made on the spot, which you can even view from the restaurant’s open kitchen. Their breakfast selections are also a favorite among many travelers.
La Dolce Vita, also in Mambajao, is also another popular restaurant on the island. They serve incredible homemade pizzas baked in their very own brick oven. Aside from pizzas, they also have a fine selection of pastas that won’t disappoint, especially their carbonara and ravioli. If you can’t get enough of Italian food when in Camiguin, then do give Luna Ristorante a try as well. It also serves a great selection of pizzas, pastas, and even seafood dishes.
But if you’re craving for Asian dishes, Guerrera Restaurant comes highly recommended. Aside from the usual Filipino dishes, the restaurant also serves a variety of Indonesias, Malaysian, and Indian offerings. What’s interesting about this restaurant is that they don’t have a fixed menu. Instead, their dishes depend on the fresh catch of the day, the fruits and vegetables from their gardens and farm that are in season, or even what the customer has requested. Aside from ensuring that the ingredients are fresh, this restaurant has a lot of surprises that will impress all sorts of visitors.
For carnivores, you can check out Isla Filete Resto for their steak and other dishes. And for a relaxing drink after a heavy meal, seek out Maestrado Tablea for a warm cup of their native tsokolate.
