Camiguin Island

Aakanksha Magan
An island that has more volcanoes per square mile than any other island on the planet and ivory sandbars in an electric blue sea - Camiguin in Philippines is beautiful and surprisingly still untouched by the hordes of tourists. You can dive and view the submerged cemetery, which slipped into the sea following an earthquake and trekkers can climb up the active volcano - Mount Hibok-Hibok.Best Time To Visit: This island is perfect to visit all year round. However, if you want to avoid tourist season, visit during the winter months, i.e from September to March.How To Reach: From Manila (Rs. 15,000), one can either fly to Cagayan de Oro (Rs. 3,000) or Butuan (Rs. 4,000) and then take a bus to Balingoan and then a ferry to the island. All the major Philippine airlines fly to these cities.Things To Do: Visit the submerged cemetery; have fun at the Katibawasan Falls and Tuasan Falls; trek to the top of the active volcano Hibok-Hibok.
The next day at 1:00 PM we departed Bohol and boarded RORO going to Camiguin. It was a three-hour sea travel so we did nothing but sleep. We arrived in Camiguin at 4:00 PM. It was because we rested so much in the RORO, we did not directly go to our cottage instead we climbed the Katibawasan Falls. But we didn’t stay long because the closing time is 5:00PM only. This is the story of our Camiguin Tour. We were not anymore three wanderlust girls in exploring Camiguin but five super wild wanderlust girls. Leah and Grace followed us in Camiguin.
