When in Camiguin

don't fail to visit..

White Island.  

An uninhabited white sandbar with the picturesque Mt. Hibok-Hibok and Old Volcano as its backdrop. The picturesque island is ideal for swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling and viewing the sunrise and sunset over Camiguin. - Source

The water is cold!  Perfect for the sunny weather if you ask me.  Just don't forget to wear your aqua shoes since there are a lot corals in the beach.

You'll be needing a beach umbrella to protect you from the blistering rays of the sun in case you want to take a rest, the island does not have any cottage.  We paid Php150 for each.

Sunken Cemetery

Sto. Nino Cold Springs.  

It has a terrific huge pool of cold spring water measuring 25m x 40m sprouting from sandy bottom. The area has native stores, picnic huts and toilets picnickers. - Source

I spent only 10 minutes in the pool, the water is freaking cold!  I was shivering.

Ardent Hot Spring.  

In the heart of the island bubbles this mineral pool with water around 40 degress Celsius. Mist rises from the heated waters that run down the vents of the dormant Hibok-Hibok volcano. The springs are ideal to bathe in at night surrounded by cool mountain air. It has therapeutic effects. Picnic huts and tables are available in the beautifully landscaped gardens and there is a restaurant on site. - Source

We thought we won't be able to try out the hot spring anymore since we arrived at 5pm already.  Glad to know it's open 24 hours.

We loved the hot spring.  It's so relaxing.

A lot of kids were diving.  It's so dangerous!
It's one of the cottages you can rent for an overnight stay
